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. 

A Thankful Pilgrim Hat

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.
