Count Your Blessings {Hershey Kiss Board}

Are you sick and tired of my Hershey Kiss Boards?  Well I sure hope not.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner it makes me reflect upon the gratefulness I feel for all the things God has done in my life. The “Count your Blessings” Hershey Kiss Board is perfect for your kids to get into the spirit of thankfulness.  Of course, in exchange for telling you something they are grateful for, they get a Hershey Kiss. it might be fun to do after Thanksgiving dinner with your guests.

1.  Mark and drill your holes where you want them.  I chose to have 14 kisses – you can add more or less.  Spray prime and paint your board.  I ended up using the Martha Stewart Craft paint by Plaid Crafts in Chesnut Brown because I was looking for a specific color.

2.  I struggled to find paper that I liked that was autumnish.  In fact, I did a whole other board I did not care for with paper and vinyl…


Anywhoooo….I decided to use the Martha Stewart Four Seasons stencil by Plaid Crafts to add some leaves to the right of my board.  I alternated with her metallic paints in sterling, yellow gold and copper.

3.  To add a color pop I cut out “Count Your Blessings” with American Crafts Pow Glitter Cardstock in Marine.  Then I Mod Podged it onto my board.  I also added strips of it to the edges of the board.

4.  Then I printed and cut out orange numbers onto white cardstock with my Silhouette machine and used Glut Dots to adhere them to the Hershey Kisses.
