Giving Thanks

I am thankful.
My life isn't perfect but, it is beautiful.
Through all the ups and downs, (more up) I have remained thankful.
Each and every twist and turn life throws at me has taught me something,
and for this......  I. AM. THANKFUL.

With THANKS GIVING around the corner
this is the perfect time of year to show some thanks.
Each of my November crafts will have a "thankful" theme.

First up are these jelly jars covered in Divine Twine.
Wouldn't these make the perfect thing to leave on a friends porch?
A grown up game of doorbell ditch......... too fun!!!
Just a little something to let a special friend
know you are thankful for them being in your life.

You will need

Divine Twine
Ribbon or lace
Rubber stamps, unless you are blessed with
impeccable penmanship, which I am so not.
Glue gun and glue sticks
A selection of cleaned and dried jelly jars.
Round jars with a lip at the top work the best.
AND your running shoes..... for the ditching
portion of this project.

Start by placing a small dot of glue at the top of the jar.
Begin wrapping the twine. Adding little dots of glue as you
need them to hold the twine in place.
If I was doing this project again I would use double stick
tape to secure the twine like I did here.

You can cover the jars completely in the twine
or leave space to add some lace or ribbon.
Use one color of twine or mix and match.
I love the gray and orange combo.

I like the way stamping directly onto the ribbon looks.

Now get your glue guns and running shoes
on and go out there and spread a little thankfulness.
