Thanksgiving is a holiday filled with traditions, but none is greater than the one that the holiday itself its named for, and that is gratitude. In the beginning family members and friends joined hands at the dinner table and told what they were grateful for in the past year.  As the time passed, people have developed many different and fun ways to express their gratitude. Such ideas have transformed into small family Thanksgiving traditions in their own right, like the case with the Thanksgiving gratitude tree. So, if you don’t have your own family tradition of giving thanks, start one this year with the help of these top 10 DIY gratitude projects for Thanksgiving.
