Thanksgiving is the time of year to come together as a family and be thankful for everything you have. What better way to celebrate the holiday than by enjoying a crafty activity with your loved ones? By following this step-by-step article, you'll be able to create a masterpiece that showcases hard-work, collaboration, and last but not least, love!

Step 1: Gather the Family

This first step is the most important. Make sure everyone who's participating has clean hands and a determined attitude. Gather paper, scissors, and glue.

Step 2: Trace Your Hands

With a marker or pencil, trace your hands on the colored paper of your choice. (You can use more than one color if you like.) The number of hands you trace depends on how large or small you want your wreath to be. The one we made at JAM had about 12-14 hands!

Step 3: Cut Out Hand Prints

Now it's time to take out the scissors! If you have very young children with you, you may have to supervise them or take over this part. You'll want to cut beneath the line so you can't see any marker/pencil marks.

Step 4: Glue or Tape Hands in a Circle

You can glue/tape them by the palms or the sides. Double-check that there's no leftover glue before you flip the wreath over. Remember to give it time to dry before decorating!

Step 5: Decorate and Place!

We made ours a cute center using a candle and had every employee write their name on the part they contributed. Our JAM Thanksgiving wreath can be used as a table centerpiece or a pretty door decoration! Customize yours however you like!

Now that your wreath is ready to go, you can place it anywhere you want! Table? Door? Wall? You name it!

We hope this gave you some ideas of how you want to celebrate your Thanksgiving. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to leave them below! We look forward to hearing from you!
