I decided on this Turkey from The Wood Connection.
Anyway, since the wood connection is a shop that sells kits, I didn't do a tutorial. But I will say I had this turkey made from scrap wood in the garage, complete in under 2 hours. So its fun and easy! If you don't have power tools, just get their kit.
Here is mine.
I just used one paper for the back feathers. (since I was using what I had) I also didn't have any bead-board (which I loved) for the front feathers, but its still cute. For that part I just stained the wood and then rubbed some blue paint on it to give it a blue hue.
I just love him! He is going to be so cute on my Thanksgiving mantle! (I'll show it once I get it done.)
Unfortunately I am too late to link it up to the Pinterest Challenge. Boo. But I thought I'd share a few of my favorite links from other people who played along.
First up, House of Hepworths made this "start being awesome" sign. I love it! She has a great tutorial on how to make it too, so check it out!
And finally, The Quaint Cottage made this chalk board coat hooks. I do not have room for anything like this in the new house, but I sure wish I did! Its adorable! Maybe I can make it work when we finish the laundry room. :)
