I needed a turkey, and not the kind you eat either. I don't really have any other decorations to transition between Halloween and Christmas with besides all my pumpkins. I need some turkeys. Problem is I don't have any turkeys.
Should I run out and buy some turkeys?
Lets make a turkey!
I have seen some really cute Thanksgiving type turkey decor around blogland. I have also seen some super cute silhouettes of kiddos out there. This got me thinking. Turkeys, kiddos, turkeys, kiddos..... Aha!!!! Since kiddos can be turkeys sometimes, I will make a silhouette of a turkey!!!
Ok, I know I have completely lost my mind, but stay with me here.
First find a super simple looking clipart of a turkey and print him out. Then glue that to some black scrapbook paper and cut him out.
Flip him over....
Then gather up some other random fall looking items. Like scrapbook paper, ribbons, leaves (that you have a bazillion left of, that you bought at the Dollar Tree), oh and a frame. Maybe you have one laying around the house like I did, that you broke the glass out of on accident. :)
Then I cut the scrapbook paper out to fit the frame, 5 x 7.
Next cut the ribbon to fit the paper.
I actually cut it a little longer than the paper and wrapped it to the other side and glued it to the back, like this.....
Now you can take some leaves, I only did three and glue them to the ribbon and paper.
Next glue the turkey down and put in the frame....
And Voila!!! Instant turkey art!!!!!
So what cha think???????
If you don't like it, lie to me. This is the first REAL crafty idea, I can remember having were I sorta thought of it myself. So don't rain on my parade. :)
