Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what you have.

It is a time to spend with friends and family celebrating – and it is also an excellent time to show others just how environmentally conscious you are.

Make Your Own Eco-Friendly Decorations

Here are a few awesome ideas for eco-friendly Thanksgiving table decorations that are perfect for getting the entire family involved.

Go on nature walks on warm fall days to gather items – or spend an evening assembling the decorations.

Handmade greeting cards are another great way to get the younger kids involved.

Let them use their imagination to create cards that are sure to be cherished.

Greeting Cards

Exchanging holiday cards on Thanksgiving Day and mailing out ones the weekend after is something many families do.

Make your own handmade greeting cards this year from junk mail and postal packaging.

This is a fun project that the whole family can participate in.

Cut out pictures from holiday catalogs, gather sample cards that come in the mail, or collect interesting images from the free mail you receive.

This is a great way to use up those scrapbook paper pieces too.

Then cut out greeting card-sized sheets of cardboard, thick envelopes, or other packaging material.

Use a paintbrush and decoupage medium, or white glue slightly watered down, and paste the images to the cardboard you cut out.

Be sure to seal the images so they don’t come off.

A bit of glitter, pieces of ribbon, old buttons or other broke jewelry add extra flair.

Nature is the perfect place to find everything you need for the ultimate green decorating project.
