I was looking for a good Thanksgiving project to do with my 4 year old. When I saw this project on Simply Modern Mom, I knew I had found it. It was a great way to teach my preschooler about the thankful part of Thanksgiving. And it looks cute on my mantle too.
To make it, I drew leaf shapes on some left over scrapbook paper scraps. I also drew some on a cut up Trader Joe's bag. Some leaves I drew on the back and some I drew on the front because the colors on the bag are just perfect for fall! Then I crumpled them up before cutting them out. Simply Modern Mom used raffia to braid her garland together. I used a hole punch and twine - 2 holes per leaf to hold them in place.
I'm thinking that this will become a Thanksgiving tradition!
