"NEW" Vintage Turkey Decoration

So last year I really was very behind come holiday time. I pushed things off, and the great ideas in my mind never came about. So this year I am working over time to get some things created. I have also done a lot of decorating around our home. So I would like to add a little home dec to my seasonal decorating that I don't currently own. So if I don't own it, I must CREATE IT! So create I have been. Now I know that it is humid outside here in the Northeast. But my heart and mind have already turned to the upcoming season of AUTUMN. And then I ran into this really great little Vintage Turkey and it was time to make something. I made these to hang off the metal tie backs on my glass doors, in the family room, to the back yard. When ever people come into our home they gravitate to those doors to see the view of the water. So I know that it is a perfect place to hang something that I created because it will not be missed. I love making things and having them in places like the half bath. You know that someone is going to see them there for sure. I think people like to find something unexpected. I really think people get how much you care about your home when they find a little something like that.
Now as far as MR. TURKEY is concerned, so easy to make. I started by layering some chipboard with paper to give it strength. Then I layered one of my bingo cards from Brambleberry Lane. Then I stamped on some of the vintage music paper from my store, the words. Next, I handstamped a leaf and used some stickles to give it a bump up. The turkey I printed off line and stickled him up as well. Now I distressed it "all" with some brown ink. I added some great screw head brads and a fab fiber and that was it. Totally looks like a old deoration that I found at a antique store. I hope you all like this as well!
