The Dollar Tree has been putting out their Fall decor and they seem to have a lot of wooden items. I picked up a few wooden turkey cut outs that I know we can get creative with. A follower of ours sent me one last year and I loved how she added a few Dollar Tree Fall leaves to it. I’m going to change it up a bit and use burlap leaves as well as some glitter.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. One wooden turkey cut out from the Dollar Tree
2. Burlap leaves from the Dollar Tree (orange, green and burgundy)
3. Hot glue
4. Maple colored Gel stain
5. Sunbeam fine glitter by StarCraft ( \you can find link down below)
6. Glorious Gold paint by DecoArt
7. DecoArt paints (tomato red and heritage brick)
8. Paint brush
9. Two sunflowers (I am using the sunflowers from our website)
10. Elmer’s glue
The first step is to paint both sides of the wooden turkey cut out.
Once you have the turkey painted you will then remove the stems from the leaves.
I added Elmers Glue along the edges of the leaves and then sprinkled on the glitter.
I did this to all of my leaves. Once they are dry you will then start glueing on the leaves.
I started with the burgundy colored leaves first . You will want to glue these as far up as you can but making sure that none of the wood is showing between the leaves.
I used five of the burgundy leaves, four of the orange leaves and then three of the green leaves.
You will want to remove the flower from the stem as well as the leaves from the stem.
I glued three leaves onto the turkey as shown in photo above.
I then glued on the two flowers.
You can then add the paints to the face and neck.
I love the glitter but I know not everyone loves glitter. You can see what the turkey looks like without the glitter in photo below.

This turkey is so easy to make and there are so many different ways you can create it. I hope you will get creative and give this a try.
