Turkey TShirt

The kiddo has to have something cute to wear to all her Thanksgiving Dinners. This plain white Tshirt from Walmart turned out way cuter than I thought. And even better - I used stuff we already had at home - total cost of this project: FREE!

 {I used a plain white long-sleeved tshirt; added some fabric, ribbon, buttons and a little fabric paint. Super cute! GOBBLE. GOBBLE.} 
Happy Thanksgiving!

Wooden Turkey

I saw a similar turkey on someone's blog (I can't remember whose? sorry). Theirs was cute, but I wanted mine to be a little larger and have more feathers and such. Super easy project (I made one and then had a little craft day with my mom and little girl to make more).
Really cute addition to my Thanksgiving decor.
{supplies needed for this project: Wood (body), wooden paint stir stick (neck/head), Jumbo craft sticks (feathers), random scrapbook paper, ink & modgepodge (feathers, beak, 'gobbler'), ribbon, acrylic paint and wood glue}

Hair Clippy Holder

If your little girl(s) is anything like mine, she probably has a million hair clippies. I am constantly making them – so we have A TON!! I needed somewhere to put our favorites and also needed some more decorations for the kiddo’s bedroom.
One day I was at Savers  ( I like thrift stores, can ya tell?) and found one of those wooden calendar holder- things. I popped out the calendar that was from the 80’s and painted the wood. Added a little batting, fabric and cris-crossed some ribbon. Wahlah!!
