Gobble Gobble

As I'm sure all of you are aware, this week was the unofficial pinterest challenge, so everyone would stop pinning and start doing!  I hadn't planned on playing along... way to much going on. But last night I got bored and was having crafting withdrawal.  So I went to pinterest to see if there was something I could make using things I already owned in only a few hours.

I decided on this Turkey from The Wood Connection.

So cute huh?!

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.

So cute!

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!

Nonsense turned a coffee table into a bench.  I have the perfect spot for a bench like this in my new house so it was fun seeing how hers was done.  Cute too!

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.  :)

So much fun!  I just love the inspiration you can find on pinterest, but its even more fun to see that inspiration become a reality! So, did you guys play along?  I'd love to see what you made!

Glad you were able to whip up your own turkey in a matter of a few hours - so talented. Great job!! Now if the packing/unpacking and remodeling could get done that fast, huh?
