You Will Need:

  • Plastic (or real) Leaves
  • Glass Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Battery Powered Tea Light Candle

To Begin:

  1. Once you’ve picked your favorite shaped jar, decide whether or not you would like a real or battery-powered candle. If you choose battery powered, then you can continue by coating the INSIDE of your jar in mod podge. If you choose a real candle, then you can continue by coating the OUTSIDE of your jar in mod podge. This is strictly for fire safety precautions.
  2. Next, begin carefully placing your leaves to the mod podge side of your jar. Use your paintbrush to coat the leaves and smooth out any wrinkles. Continue by covering the entire jar in leaves.
  3. Once your jar is covered, you can trim off any excess leaves and wait patiently overnight for your jar to dry completely.
  4. Now that the jar has dried, you may place the candle of your choice inside and enjoy!

You Will Need:

  • Construction Paper
  • Printable Leaf Template
  • Brown Kraft Paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Pen/Marker

To Begin:

  1. Begin by Downloading and Printing out the Leaf Template provided below.

2. Next, cut out the leaf then lay it on top of a stack of colorful construction paper.

3. Trace the leaf laying on the top sheet.

4. With the stack of paper in hand, cut out the shape of the leaf you just traced.

5. You should be left with a bunch of colorful leaves. Hand your leaves out to your residents (allow them to choose their favorite color). Give your residents a pen or marker to sign their name on one side and what they’re thankful for on the other.

6. Collect your leaves and set aside.

7. To make the tree trunk we used a large roll of brown kraft paper, then cut to the length desired. Laying on a flat surface, we drew the outline of a tree with tree limbs sticking out whatever which way.

8. Cut out your tree shape and hang in a window using clear tape.

9. Next, have your residents tape their leaves to the tree – name facing one way and what they’re thankful for on the opposite side.

10. Admire your Thankful Tree!
