List each thing you have been thankful for this past year and remember how great your year has been. This project is a great way to give thanks in a fun, decorative way. By following this easy tutorial, you'll see how easy it is to craft up Thanksgiving decorating ideas that all your friends and family will want to try too.

I truly like this idea! It can even be saved for Thanksgiving seeing that the pumpkin it's self isn't damaged. I think it would be good to use a glow in the dark paint. I have Grand kids and I'm thinking this could be a good family craft. Having everyone write on the pumpkin what they are thankful for. I'm saving this idea and we will be doing this one! Thank you so much for sharing this free Thankful For Pumpkin craft.
