The first thing you’ll want to do is paint your terracotta pot. This step isn’t necessary, but I thought it would be fun to give it a distressed look. I only did one quick coat, because I wanted to see the original color through the metallic paint. You could paint it any color though, that’s the fun part!

The next thing your going to do is glue your branches together to create the perfect tree. I only used two branches, but you could definitely make a larger tree. Then I glued it to the base and filled it with a yummy autumn mix. Don’t you just love those little pumpkins? 😉

Finally I glued my leaves to the branches. You could even cut out paper leaves and create a “grateful tree” and have your family write down things they are grateful for.

This little tree now sits happily on my kitchen table. I love how friendly it is! 🙂 See now wasn’t that simple? Anyone can make one of these, and for less than three bucks it is the perfect craft for you and your little ones!
