Count Your Blessings

Count Your Blessings
I am so grateful for the blessings I enjoy in my life. I love this time of year because we have a definite reason to pause and think about the things we are grateful for—and there are lots! I made these for my children’s teachers to let them know how grateful we are for them.

The best part is that these go together pretty quickly. I actually had all of the materials on hand except orange paint. Since I had to look all over for the hooks last time I made this, I have seen them lots of places including my local grocery store. Said store also carries ribbon, jute, spray paint (better selection than certain home improvement stores) and staples for my staple gun. One stop shopping—especially if you need to run in for a forgotten food item. If you still need a quick hostess gift (or craft project for yourself!) this is a good one.

I made this the same way I made the St. Patrick’s Day gifts the past year. Go HERE to find the instructions and links. I only lightly sanded the edges and face of the large board to bring out the orange color. It is gorgeous although a little hard to see the orange in my pictures.
