Thanksgiving Board

I had the idea to make this neat little board and I finally made it last night, just in time for Thanksgiving on Thursday. I wanted to have something that my whole family could write down what they were thankful for on and I thought this cork board would be a good idea. Make one for your family this Thanksgiving to be mindful of all that we are thankful for!

All you need is:
Cork board: Wal-Mart (pack of 4 $5.99)
Colored Leaf Dollies: Dollar Tree ($1.00)
Markers
Card Stock (or a poster): Hobby Lobby
Tacks, tape, scissors
Foam Turkeys- Pack of 6 at Micheals for $1.99

This is too easy and probably doesn't need much explanation 
so I will let the pictures do the talking :)

I know my paper is blue but I wanted to use card stock instead of computer paper so it would be sturdier when I cut the letters out and blue was the only color I had on hand, but after you color it you'll never know it was blue! I outlined the letters in a dark orange and colored the inside dark brown to have a contrast.

 Don't stick your tacks all the way through, just enough to hold the letters in place and use tape to put the leaves and turkey on and then after Thanksgiving take the decorations off and your cork board is still perfect, you can use it for another project!

Finished Product:



I'm going to pass it around at dinner on Thursday and get everyone to write on a leaf with a black sharpie what they are thankful for!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
