Dare to Be... Thankful!

Kim at Newlywoodwards is once again hosting the Dare to DIY Parties. I participated a few times last year and I hope to participate more this year!
Dare to DIY

This weeks theme was Dare to Be.. Thankful. I wasn't quite sure what Thanksgiving craft to make until I saw this cute little turkey hair bow from Silly Eagle Books via One Pretty Thing.

Here is my version:
The body of the turkey is just two buttons hot glued together. I didn't have any googly eyes that were small enough so I used some large blue seed beads for the eyes. Yesterday my Aunt Kris dropped off a few boxes of random old {awesome} Christmas stuff and much to my surprise there was a big container of foam ornaments. For the beak and the wattle I just cut out little pieces of the foam ornaments. A little ribbon and some hot glue later and I was left with this cute little turkey hair bow for Kenley to wear on Thanksgiving!

{My little model is so much more cooperative when her Daddy is pinning her down hugging on her}

I can't wait to use up more of the goodies from the two boxes Aunt Kris gave me for some Christmas crafting!
