Be Thankful!

Every year the art teachers in my district are asked to make artwork for the Feast of Sharing, hosted by HEB.  We do these beautiful metal leaves with colorful backgrounds.  Last year they shared with me that they got so many compliments that they gathered them all up after the feast and handed them out to the people they visit for Meals on Wheels.  Since students are asked to give their artwork away, they are allowed to make a second one for keeps :)


  1. Really nice, I love these! I think I will have to borrow this for next year :)Elizabeth

  2. How beautiful!What grade level created them?

    1. Thanks so much! I do these with my 4th and 5th graders, but I think 3rd grade would do well with this project as well.

  3. is this tinfoil that you have "carved" on

  4. It is embossing foil. But, you could use a heavy duty tinfoil as well, it would be a similar result. The only difference is it would rip more easily. You could try doubling the layer of tinfoil, or use foam under the tinfoil to see if that was enough to keep it from ripping.
