 I had to make this cute little Turkey after seeing Wendy featured over at Ucreate . It was fun and easy, if you would like to see how it's made go here!!!
 All, you need is a wood block cut from a 2X4, a five gallon paint stick found at Walmart for 28 cents, jumbo craft sticks, scrapbooking paper, craft paint,a feather, ribbon. Easy peasy. I used a glue stick instead of the modge podge to adhere the paper to the craft sticks, putting it on the stick instead of the paper made it alot easier for me.
Thanks Wendy for providing us with the precise easy to follow tutorial on this cute little Turkey!
Wendy also sells kits for these and other adorable things over at her Etsy store

I added a little cutesy poem to the back.

I had bought his vanilla cookie jar candle and shade at walmart last week,
I decided instead of keeping it I would give it a makeover and use it for one of the gifts at my soon to be Great Grandsons baby shower this weekend. I think it added some much need charm to it.
I cut the paper from a 12X12 sheet of paper from the autumn DCWV stack. I cut it 3 1/2 X12 ran it through my xyron .
 Wrapped it aroung the jar. Tied some jute, then I cut the scalloped circle and the circle from the mini monigrams cricut cartridge.

Printed out the saying from my computer using MS word.
