Thanksgiving Tree

Or maybe I should say Fall Tree. Anyway, remember I told you how much I loved my Halloween Tree sitting on my dining room table? I couldn't pack it away, so I changed it up a little.

I took all the Halloween decorations off and was on a mission to find something to put on it so I could keep it up a little longer.
Score! When I was waiting at Joann's 2 hours (yes, I said 2 hours!!) to get my fleece cut last weekend when they had their big sale, I found those stems for 70% off and I had a coupon to get 25% off my whole purchase. I got them for little or nothing so it didn't bother me to cut them up.
On a side note, I'm still trying to convince myself to go back to Joann's on Black Friday to buy more flannel. I was there last year when they opened at 5:00 and didn't get out of there until 2:00. Most of that time I was just waiting in a line.
I told Greg the other day that if he would go with me, we could work out a system. He could wait in line for a shopping cart while I grabbed a cutting number and got the fabric and then he could be standing in line to check out. Sounds perfect, doesn't it? Yeah, he looked at me like I was crazy!
Back to the tree...
After I cut everything I wanted to use off the stems, I had itty bitty clothespins that I attached them to the branches with.
I definitely think I've milked that cheap "thrift store find" tree for all it's worth. Yes, it will be packed away after Thanksgiving!

Pin It

That's very pretty, Terri! And so Thanksgiving. Nice job. I really need to do something around here to make it look more festive! Maybe I'll copy this idea. :-)
