Hello! Samantha here with you. I have a project today that’s not only great for fall but also a wonderful way to put a positive emphasis on interactions between family members. This DIY Thankful Note Board is a really fun way to get everyone involved in small acts of gratitude.
We’re using this note board this fall to leave each other notes of gratitude. There are no rules to how to use the note board. The idea is just to write down something you’re grateful for about another family member or a note of thanks if they did something kind for you. It’s a fun way to call out acts of everyday kindness!
I had a small frame with a recessed area of about 4″ x 4″. I painted the frame with brown paint, and then went to town decorating it with embellishments from the Autumn Woods collection (and a few other collections, as well). I thought the feathers from the Feather Project Pad coordinated beautifully with Autumn Woods, so I added a few of those. To give them a bit of a 3D effect, I took a bone folder and scored the feathers down the middle. Folding them a little along the score line gives the feathers some extra dimension, perfect for an off the page project.
Since I was using feathers on this project, it seemed like the perfect choice to use this sweet little owl for our note board clip. The metal is nice and sturdy, so we’ll be able to use it over and over again without the metal getting fatigued.
I finished up by using washi tape to add some borders (and a pop of color) to the frame.
I can’t wait to start using our thankful note board to add some extra gratitude to our days.
