This Little Turkey of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine!

A friend and I got together with our kids and made this "TOO CUTE" little votive turkey holder.

I found the idea at Family Fun Magazine's website. I changed a few things around on the directions though. They used tissue paper for the "feathers" but I found these real ones, and I think it is more realistic. But if you make it the way I did, be sure to keep the feathers far away from the heat, as they *will* catch fire. Don't ask me how I know. ;-)

Also at the website they used tissue paper for the beak, and wattle. I used felt, and small pom pom balls. I think it would make it last longer than the paper.

This is a very sticky, messy craft, so be sure that you have plenty of clean up supplies and prepare your space for spills. But it was sooooo much fun too! :)

The turkey has inspired us to make other animals or objects. We thought of a turtle after bean misplaced the eyes on her turkey and it looked like a turtle head. So we may just try making a turtle! And a bunny came to mind as well. Have fun, and use your imaginations! :)

I've never commented here before, since I never came across your blog before. And more's the pity, because we think/feel alike, on political things.

I am scared, scared, scared. And since I have never felt this way, for all my years in my Beloved Country... I had to make a blog, specifically for the purpose of trying to spread the word... That we must watch like hawks, what will be going on {and already is going on} in our Beloved Country.

Having just come across your blog, I wanted to invite you to come by this new blog of mine, if you wish.

We will all need Courage! And the knowledge that others out here, believe as we do, is helpful also. At least to me, it is.

And if you come over and agree with me. And if you tell me that it is OK with you, I will add your blog to my Blog List on my Sidebar. {Never had a Blog List before but... } And if you do not want me to do so, for ANY reason, I will honor this wish too. Of course.

Thank you.
