With the whole family together, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to look back and celebrate the year's achievements. Whether it's an after-dinner gathering in the living room or a powwow around a backyard fireplace, it's nice to do this with a bit of ceremony -- and these commemorative scrolls add a special flourish to the festivities.
Ask each family member for their nominations -- and be sure everyone gets an award, whether it's "best haircut of the year" or "toughest survivor of a home renovation."
Cut the sheets of scrapbook paper in half to measure 6 by 12 inches. In the middle of each half sheet, write the award and the winner's name using a marker.
Use a glue gun to affix 2 sticks to the scroll's top and bottom.
Glue small pinecones or acorns to the ends of the sticks for decoration. Roll the scroll and tie it with ribbon or raffia.
