Fall Thankful Garland SuppliesSupplies Needed for Thankful Bucket Garland…

  1. I love this! The buckets are a wonderful idea!

  2. What a beautiful mantle, Trish and Bonnie. I believe that this is a great interactive decor piece. Such an amazing new tradition, that for years your children/family will look forward to this, great memories for a lifetime.

    Are you going to be reading them after supper on Thanksgiving?

    Now I can’t wait to start a new family tradition this year. Thank you both so much for the inspiration to create thankfulness within my home. I am going to see if i can find some acorn and pine-cone to add to it as well. I think that the burlap leaves gives it a ‘natural’ look as well as adding great textures.
