You know what I love? Turkey crafts! There’s Nothing better than a good old turkey craft to get in the Thanksgiving spirit! I’m slightly obsessed with turkeys. My little guy was born a week before Thanksgiving and I have always called him “My Turkey”. Last year my nephew was born the day before Thanksgiving and he is my turkey 2! I was once a Turkey for Halloween and made my tail out of old ties. Needless to say I love Turkeys and can’t resist a Turkey craft.
Here’s one of my favorite Turkey projects. I’m getting ready for the upcoming season of Thankfulness! Gobble Gobble!
Ah, the Turkey day protestors! I made these for my Thanksgiving table last year. Occupy Wall Street was going on then so I call this table scape “Occupy Turkey Day”.
I found this awesome stamp in the dollar bin at Jo-ann’s. I thought it would be perfect for a Turkey day Picket sign. I applied a variety of distress ink to my turkey stamp…especially on the tail feathers…and stamped and embossed on marbled card stock. Next, I cut my images into squares and distressed the edges with a paper distresser and Tea Dye distress ink.
I found these vintage Hallmark honey comb turkeys at the bottom of a chest full of vintage greeting cards I inherited from my BIL’s grandmother. She was a woman after my own heart and saved everything sentimental. I can’t tell you where to find vintage honey comb turkeys like mine but I have seen honey comb turkeys a plenty at the dollar store!
To complete the “picket signs” I cut up wooden skewers and hot glued them to the back of the stamped squares and the side of the honey comb turkey.
Everyone was delighted when they came to the table and saw these tiny turkey protestors in lieu of place cards. Despite the turkey’s pleadings I will NOT be eating ham this Thanksgiving…but don’t tell the Turkeys I told you that
