Tell your friends and family how thankful you are for them with some sweet “Thankful” Thanksgiving Favors! Work great as gifts or as favors at your Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and I’m so excited to share this sweet Thanksgiving favor with you! Add some candy to a bag to look like Indian corn, and tie on the watercolor “Thankful” gift tag to finish the look! They will look so great on your Thanksgiving table and is also a thoughtful way to tell friends and family how grateful you are for them this holiday season.

  5. Cut a length of twine or hemp cord 10-12” long. Fold it in half, then push the folded end through the hole in the tag. Pull the two ends through the loop and pull it tight.
