Joke: What happened when the turkey got into a fight?
----find the answer at the end of the post ;0)
All jokes aside, this was a pretty fun craft. While surfing the web, I came across some really cute turkey ideas. I found one HERE that I really loved. Taking that idea, I adapted it into my own.
1. I used a router to cut the breadboard in a half circle (more like a half oval…) for the back of the turkey.2. Using a scroll saw, I cut out the turkey bodies. I free handed a pattern for the body. (click on the first picture for the pattern)3. I then sanded the bodies and breadboard.4. I painted, then distressed the sides of the breadboard and the bodies.5. I made my own glaze mix- 1/2 Behr's glaze and 1/2 dark brown paint, then I coated the breadboard with the glaze. I let it sit for a minute, then I wiped it off with a paper-towel. 6. For the legs, I used a dowel. Make sure they are the same length. For the feet, I wanted to have two separate feet, but I thought that would make the turkey unstable, so I cut out triangles out of 2X4's. One triangle per turkey.7. Drill holes in the feet and in the bottom of the body of the turkey. Make sure the holes lined up. Use wood glue to secure the dowels in the 2x4.8. Paint the feet9. Distress the legs and feet, then coat with glaze then wipe off. (I used stain because I ran out of glaze)10. I used black carpet nails for the eyes and a wooden triangles I had on had for the beak. 11. I Glued the body onto the breadboard and let it dry, then glued the legs into the holes I drilled in the body. I also cut the red dangley thing out of red felt and glued it next to the beak.There you have it- your very own turkeys!
