Thanksgiving centerpiece

I decided to make our Thanksgiving/Fall centerpiece with Ella this year. 

We picked up some branches that were by the side of the road and put them in a vase.  They kind of flopped everywhere, so we filled a vase with navy beans {which are white, ironically} that we dyed blue for a fun school project.   The beans kept the branches secure.

We cut up leaves and attached them to the branches with floral wire.

It's hard to photograph branches. 

I had Ella make a list of the things she is thankful for, and she put them on the leaves.



It was a fun project, and very easy.

Yesterday, I saw this post with free downloads from Jones Design Company and think I might use it for next year, or maybe find a place to incorporate it this year.  We really can't be too thankful!
