I’m super excited!! Barb from Second Chance to Dream is here today with a SUPER CUTE Thanksgiving tutorial for you!! You are going to LOVE IT!!!!
Hi! I’m Barb Camp from Second Chance to Dream. I want to say Thank You to Christine for having me here today. Isn’t she great?? She is so patient and kind and she has a fabulous blog! A little about me, I’m a wife of almost 35 years, a mom to 6 kids ages 34-13, 3 married and 3 still at home. I have 3 grandchildren. I’m a life coach who wants to encourage women to live their dreams and passions and help them to grow creatively as well as spiritually. Stop on over and check out my blog. In honor of Christine’s Canadian Thanksgiving coming up on Oct. 8th I thought I’d share a project to help her celebrate. I sure wish we lived closer because I’d give it to her for her dining room table.
I ran across these pieces in a bag at a resale store and it was marked 1.00. Only they were painted primary colors. I realized it was turkey feathers and a face with a gobbler. Of course I had to buy it because I could see it in fun fall colors. I forgot to take a picture of the pieces with their primary colors.
I came home and started thinking about what I could do. I was thinking paint the feathers an orange or brown and modge podging scrapbook paper on to the feathers. I visit JoAnn Fabrics to look for some fall scrapbook paper and couldn’t find any in single sheets. They had lots of Halloween, but no fall paper. These napkins caught my eye and thought why not use those. So I bought them and I’ll show you how to make one of your own turkey pumpkin.
2. I spray painted the feathers brown.
