Not because I am crafty and creative, but because I am NOT. However, pinterest makes me think, "Mmm.... I could do that." And sometimes I can and sometimes.... not so much.
Hence, my take Tuesdays. I will be giving you “my take” of a pin off pinterest. It will be a random conglomeration of things- decorating, recipes, fun for the kids, craftiness, and even cleaning tips. Seeing as I have already tried a few pins that did not go, you might say, “as planned,” this should be fun. Plus, it will keep me from endlessly pinning away and actually make me try them out! Enjoy!
Here is the original pin and a few more pics
This is the kid’s thankful tree in our homeschool room. The bark is made out of felt. Again this is a little more expensive than craft paper, but it is reusable next year. I had planned to use felt leaves as well, but I found another use for that felt, a future pinterest project. I opted for the ones shown below that I also found at Michael's. They are pre-cut and ready to go on the tree. I don't mind putting in the work for something that we can use again, but, in all honesty, the idea of cutting out 45+ leaves that would have to be thrown away just did not appeal to me.
This is the other original pin and picture of our leaves. I plan on adding a Bible verse across the bottom of the tree during school today but it did not happen in time for the picture. I am really looking forward to doing this with the kids. I have been thinking a lot about thankfulness over the past few days... more to come on that later.
