This project makes a wonderful annual tradition that your family can really grow into.
What you'll need
- Art sand (sold at craft supply stores)
- Bare tree branch
- Colored craft foam
- Permanent marker
- Large ornament hanger or straightened paper clip
How to make it
Fill a flowerpot with sand and set in a shapely bare tree branch.
Next, cut a pile of leaf shapes from colored craft foam.
As your guests arrive, have them take a leaf and, with a permanent marker, write their name and the date on one side and something they're grateful for on the other.
To decorate your tree, push a large ornament hanger or straightened paper clip through the stem of each leaf and hang it in place.

What a great idea! Do you save the leaves from prior years or just add leaves each year?
