Gratitude Planter

Ready for an elegant Thanksgiving craft idea? This chalkboard painted planter is a perfect way to remind you of what you’re thankful for. Make several pots to use as a Thanksgiving centerpiece, or individual planters to use as place-settings for each of your holiday guests. My instructions for this terracotta chalkboard planter are over at Homemade Simple: [gratitude planter]

Here’s a compelling reason to “cultivate” gratitude – being thankful has been linked to better health, sleep, satisfaction with life, kinder behavior toward others, and reduced anxiety and depression. Simply taking time to be grateful five times a week for one minute has shown to improve life significantly in these areas.
