Gobble Gobble!

Here is a quirky little Thanksgiving wreath I finished today. I started to put it on Trash to Treasure, but I think it is more crafty. The turkeys are made from soda cans. The wreath and decorations are items I bought at yard sales. I did have to break down and buy autumn colored ribbon at full price. LOL

Oh my gosh I have never seen anything so cute!
Did you make it up yourself? How did you cut the feathers from the can so they wouldn't be sharp and what are the necks made of?

Very cute! The turkeys look great. I'm wondering how you did their legs. Love the ribbon you found. Luvs

For those who asked for directions, I made a quick tutorial to give you some idea of how to make the turkeys.

RE: Gobble Gobble!

Thank you so much for sharing these turkeys.
I am always looking for a new idea to use as place cards for the Thanksgiving dinner. I have 12 young grandkids, and I think that these will be very well accepted on the children's table.
I am just a little concerned about how sharp the edges might be. It might have to be that the "look, but don't touch" rule will be applied.

Not too sharp

Bobbi, the soda cans are not as sharp as other cans when cut. I did not get cut when I made the turkeys or any of the other soda can projects I have done. However, I think your rule for the children is a good idea, as they are not made to be toys. I hope my directions are clear enough for you to make the turkeys. As you say, they would be good for place cards. Ummm....I guess I had better make some more!
