Thanksgiving Blessings Wall DIY

I wanted a way to document my blessings, as well as my friends' & family's who stop by.  Here's what I came up with!

What You Need:
brown wrapping paper {I got mine at the Dollar Tree (it has a design on one side, but is plain on the other)}; thumb tacks {2-4}; chalk

What You Do:
Secure your wrapping paper to the wall with thumb tacks.  {I used only one roll this year {hoping this will be the start of a tradition}, but I think it would be cool if you used several & covered an entire wall with blessings - especially if you're having a big shindig!}  If you, however, have a bumpy/stucco wall, I suggest you tack one or more thin foam poster boards underneath your brown paper, so you'll have a smoother surface to write on.  Add your blessings & invite your guests to do the same.  Make sure to keep the chalk nearby!

Quick Tip: You can easily create a point on a new piece of chalk by using a regular hand held pencil sharpener.  Try it!

Love & Blessings,


  1. I love this idea! (And I never thought to try sharpening chalk with a pencil eraser—nifty!)

    1. Thanks, Jameson {still love that cool name of yours}! =) I was just thinking this DIY would make a great table runner/cover, too, for a rectangular table - then guests could write blessings & notes on the table. Thanks again for stopping by!
      Happy Thanksgiving {& hope you'll be back to blogging, yourself, soon}!
