Turn this craft into a mindful project fit for the whole family by asking the kids to come up with a gratitude list. Then use a gold sharpie to color the tips of each “leaf” and document everything the family is thankful for. Hang it proudly on your door.

Sprinkle cardstock with fine glitter in warm autumnal colors (or, in a pinch, save time by buying glittered cardstock). Once dry, glue your “leaves” to a wreath form and add a bow. Pro tip: Hairspray will help to keep sparkly specks from falling all over your porch.

Not just for apple pie, the juicy red fruit stuns as door décor, too. The faux variety ensures the wreath will last the entirety of the season. Use natural filler to cover up any gaps and add a strip of burlap for a sturdy, natural hanger.
