I have finally come up with a good decoration for my nook. Because I am feeling so pleased with how it turned out, I will share a tutorial of how to make one for yourself:)
frame, scrapbook paper, hot glue gun, leaves, scissors, and 2 black things for eyes.
oh and something for the body. I found this at Hobby Lobby. Not sure what it is, but it was swirly and sparkly and I knew it would be perfect for what I had in mind.
Stack 3 leaves on top of one another. Arrange as wanted. I put a tiny stitch that can be removed to hold the leaves in place while I was working. At this point, if you want sparkly leaves (I did) then add glitter. I used spray glitter.
Arrange the leaves and body of the Turkey on the paper into the position you want. Hot glue into place. Then place the body of the turkey. I just spiraled it into a circle and hot glued it down. Take into account the legs when centering the turkey.
For the legs cut 2 small pieces and 2 even smaller pieces. I bent the even smaller pieces in half.
Add eyes. For the eyes I just pulled some of these off some left over decor.
For the beak just use a corner of a leaf cut into a beak shape. Glue into place. A turkey is not complete without its gobbler:) I cut mine out of a red leaf.
And you're done:)
I will be linking up to a few of these:
