Show off everything you are thankful for this year by making a DIY thankful tree.  Add pictures of all of the people and things in your life right from your phone and show them off in this fun fall themed tree.  It is so easy to make and you will love adding this to your home décor.



  1. Start by printing the leaves and the tag (Download) onto card stock. The leaves should be printed on colored card stock then cut out with scissors. DIY Thankful Tree
  2. Print the tag on white card stock, cut out, and then punch a hole in the top. DIY Thankful Tree
  3. You will then want to fill your container with Styrofoam. DIY Thankful Tree

  1. This is a lovely idea. For my bridal shower years ago, my cousin made two trees that connected, showing pictures of my husband and myself over our lifetimes. I love this! #MM
