A Thankful Pilgrim Hat
This is the season that reminds us to be thankful. I am really blessed that my nephews live right next door to me. It is awesome to be a part of their lives everyday. So when I made this “Thankful Pilgrim Hat”, I let my 7 year old nephew write what he was most thankful for on the banners. This is a fun project, that would be great to set out during Thanksgiving, and let everyone participate.
Start out with a clay flower pot. Spray paint it with chalkboard paint.
To decide how big I wanted to make my brim, I just laid my large circle spellbinders around the pot, until I found the size that looked right. I cut a base from chipboard, and then covered it with black cardstock.
Glue the flower pot to the brim. Decorate with a ribbon that is the same width as the band of your pot (if there is a raised band).
Take kitchen skewers and color them with a spray mist. Let dry. Cut banners from cardstock. Ink the edges and glue around the skewer. Punch 2 holes to the side of the banner closest to the skewer, and tie ribbon.
Write down your blessings and create a memory with your family.
