I don’t know about you but I am busy! This time of year is so full of friends and family and celebrating that trying to carve out time for a craft or decorations is as challenging as running a marathon…I kid, but not really. With that said, now is not the time to cut corners. The hours spent baking your leftover Halloween pumpkins into puree for your holiday pie gives you time to reflect on all the things to be thankful for. The care in kneading your homemade rolls gives your mind rest from the everyday as it wanders to all the joy this season brings.
As you pin your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes, your thoughts lean toward the laughter and family that is to come at the end of the month around the table filled with food, fun and laughter. The shorter days and darker evenings lend themselves to huddling in the kitchen around simmering pots of cider, warming the body and the spirit.
I am looking for something little; a sweet, easy, craft to bring a bit of November charm to the house for thanksgiving. Nothing crazy, mind you, just something for my hands to do on these foggy and chilly Oregon nights. This Thanksgiving Garland is perfect for adding a little celebration to the dinner table; you could even make a minute one to be a pie-topper on your pumpkin pies.

To being thankful for the little things,
love love love your paper garland! i’m thinking of making one of christmas now 🙂 so fun.
