– it’s Tifany
here from Ink Blots by TRD
. Can you believe how quickly Thanksgiving is approaching?! I was totally caught off-guard recently as I realized that Thanksgiving is next. week.
I wanted to come up with something cute to decorate with, and I wanted it to be something simple enough to share (and re-create) with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop.
Enter the “thankful jar”:
No, the idea of a thankful jar isn’t new, but…well…it’s another reason to decorate a mason jar! And I sure love mason jars – don’t you? (By the way, be sure to check out the cute pens DoBea made for her thankful jar on the post HERE.)
I decorated two different jars – one feels a little more “Fall” and one feels a little more “Winter” – but I was just going for variety and fun colors.
It was a simple process: wrap jars with glittered burlap, add a pop of color by wrapping with The Twinery’s twine
, stick in a few paper leaves, and finish it off with a twine-tied button.
I used The Twinery’s Solid Caribbean and Solid Strawberry twines on these jars, but there are a lot more solid and striped options to choose from!
The point of the thankful jar is to add in little notes of what you are thankful for, so I created this printable to coordinate with my jars:
Do you do a thankful jar (or some other “thankful” tradition) for Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear about it – just leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping by!
