Check out our other Thanksgiving Crafts.



Materials Needed

Thick Colored Paper






Pictures of Family and Friends (you can use old photos or print outs)



Step 1

Cut out pieces of paper in different colored and sized diamonds as shown.



Step 2

Stick pictures on one side. I’m also really thankful for the great times of celebrations I had this year with my family and friends, so I made a special diamond that says ” celebrations”.  You can also add some like these.



Step 3

On the other side of the diamond, write the name of the person and decorate as shown.



Step 4

Using a pencil in the center, roll some colored paper into 2 tight rolls as shown. Glue the ends and then, remove the pencil.



Step 5

Cross the two rolls at the center and tie them together as shown.



Step 6

Punch a hole on the top end of the diamond and tie a piece of thread. Attach the thread to the paper rolls as shown.



Step 7

Tie a piece of ribbon to the top of the paper rolls as shown right in the middle.



Step 8

Now, hang up your mobile.
