Fall is such a wonderful time. The season is full of fun holiday fun between dressing up and Halloween festivities. Then comes Thanksgiving. To me it is the perfect holiday to go between Halloween and Christmas. It helps us to slow down and remember what is most important in life and prepare us for the wonderful season of Christmas. This thankful craft wreath is perfect to hang during the Thanksgiving season inside or outside. I love having the opportunity to reflect on what I’m thankful for and the blessings that I have in my life.
