DIY Thanksgiving Memory Keeper Crafts

Thanksgiving is always such a special time for food, family and football every year. But it always goes by in such a flash (thanks to a little help from Jack Daniels), and all of those fun family memories fade away faster than department stores' fall decor. 

To preserve those special family memories, and to have a keepsake you can keep looking back on for years to come, try making one of our chic DIY Thanksgiving memory keepers. They make for fun family traditions, and are a great way to reflect and reminisce each year at Thanksgiving dinner.

If your family is anything like mine, there is bound to be at least one or two classic inside jokes that are thrown around, and make everyone double-over in a fit of laughter. Keep those jokes, as well as Aunt Judy's one-liners, in a safe place that will keep you and your family howling for hours with this Personalized Thanksgiving Memory Jar. It's also a great way to have every member of the family write down what they are thankful for, and place it in the jar. At the end of the night, someone can take each piece of paper and read off the heartwarming message.

If you're more of the journal and scrapbooking type, make this Thanksgiving Memory Journal. You can add in fun anecdotes, photos and messages from the holiday, and keep adding to it every year. It is a great craft to get kids involved in, and can also be passed down from generation to generation. 

Word blocks have become a chic home decor staple, and are a great way to personalize your space by including messages that really resonate with you and your family. This year, make sure word blocks that are holiday-themed, and create fun Thanksgiving messages to display as part of your holiday decor. Make these DIY Thanksgiving Memory Blocks for a fun, family-friendly craft that will really personalize your holiday decor.
