Hello and Happy November everyone…Anne here! Can we even believe it’s November already? And with it comes my favorite holiday…Thanksgiving! So much has happened since last year’s turkey day, and although I love the food more than most things, I am really excited to spend the day with our family at home. We all have so much to be thankful for, and in that spirit of gratitude, this DIY was created! This thankful jar can be a sweet way to get the family in on sharing what they are thankful for too.

Making your own sweet and stylish jar is super easy. You need some smooth rocks, spray paint, and a jar. Go ahead and throw a chalkboard sticker in for good measure.
Pick out the smoothest rocks. They will get writing on them and those nooks and bumps are a pain!
Spray paint your rocks.
Write what you are thankful for.
Then fill up the jar.
If you are looking to be inspired or reminded of all that you are thankful for on a day besides Thanksgiving (we all have those days, right?), put your rocks in a shallow dish for you and all to see!
These are going out on our Thanksgiving table for the family to do. I can’t wait to see and share what we are all thankful for!
* Loving this Enrico Mango Dish found at Wal-Mart!
* This glass jar with metal lid would be perfect to store the Thankful stones!
* What a cute idea to send out Thanksgiving dinner invites! Lots of fun ideas here.
* The easiest way to take your Thanksgiving dinner table to the next level. I love these glittery leaves!
