turkey hoop art tutorial

November means turkey day! The day where I indulge myself in plates of stuffing, mashed potatoes and juicy turkey. Can you tell I love food? ha!
I felt it was only appropriate that I make a sweet vintage fabric hoop art turkey to ring in one of my favorite holidays. 


You will need:
* One large and small hoop
* Glue gun
* Fabric 
* Card stock paper
* Buttons for eyes
* Burlap
* Glue or Mod Podge

1. This craft is pretty straight forward. Fit burlap into your hoops and hot glue the small hoop on the large hoop.
2. Then glue or Mod Podge fabric onto the card stock so when you glue the feathers they will stay straight.
3. Glue button eyes, fabric nose and "red gobble thing" while the feathers are drying.
4. After your feathers are dry cut them into large feather shapes and hot glue onto the back of your turkey.
5. Enjoy your sweet turkey!
Gobble Gobble!
