Thanksgiving Craft: Gather Plate

Lately, I am finding myself drawn to the simple things. This is the time of year when the hustle and bustle begins and there just seems to be a lot of "noise." Halloween has passed and I needed something to fill the Holiday decor void so I came up with this simple Thanksgiving craft. I have lots of decor items that refer to giving thanks, being grateful, remembering our blessings, etc. I wanted a simple word that represents Thanksgiving to me. I think I found the perfect one.

Between all the craziness of travelling and food prep there is one thing about Thanksgiving that means the most to me and that is the gathering. Bringing family and friends together to express our gratitude, bask in memories, and create new.

Easy Thanksgiving Craft: Gather Plate

Did I mention that you only need three things?

White plate
Martha Stewart Fire Opal Glitter Paint
Martha Stewart Fine Tip Top #3

Screw the tip on to your paint bottle and write on the plate.

Let dry overnight.

Add your cute new Thanksgiving craft to your decor.
