I got the cookie sheets from the dollar store. Then I spray painted them with brown spray paint. I used mod podge and scrapbooking paper to framed the tree. Then I sprayed the whole thing again with clear spray paint.
Then each day the kids get to add leaves(which are magnets) to the trees. On the "Thanks" tree- they add leaves for different items that they are thankful for. And on the "Giving" tree they add leaves for the different acts of service they give.
All the extra leaves are on the other side of the cookie sheet for storage. The one thing I have left to do is drill two holes and hang ribbon on them, so that can be hung on the walls.
I also made this turkey hair pins. I saw the idea on Nancy's Couture and thought it was so cute. I ended up making four. (one of me and one for each of my three nieces)
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.

There is a Curious George episode where George dressed up like a robot XF-17. So Son #1 also wanted to label his robot costume XF-17. George also wears a colander on his head so we had to have a colander on our robot's head as well.

Here is a close up on the squares. I found this pattern years ago and thought it was such a wacky project. It was actually my DH's idea that it would be the perfect pattern for a Halloween quilt.
I love all the material that I used and I have enough for one extra project. I just can't decide if I want to make a table runner or a fabric penndant for the fireplace.
