Thanksgiving Napkin Ring with Jen Matott13 October 2012 | By admin in Altered Art, Blossoms and Leaves, Pennants
Hi there crafty friends! I have a fun little project to share that incorporates many of Basically Bare’s shapes in one cute napkin holder. Thanksgiving in the USA (I know Canada already had theirs) is next month and I thought I’d create a fun table decor that is useful too.
I took on of the chipboard owl body and covered it with patterned papers. I covered 2 wings with a coordinating paper. Added a beak (by folding a leaf from the flower pack in half), waddle (a small felt wing shape), and flower eyes.
The tail of the turkey was created with a large felt flower (edged in marker), a gear covered in patterned paper, and the feathers that were created with the leaves and the wings in the owl set. I used Helmar’s 450 Adhesive to glue the patterned papers onto the chipboard and then to attach them all together!
I cut a toilet paper roll in half and covered it with patterned papers and glued it to the back of the turkey.
This cute little guy waits to greet the person sitting at this place setting! This would be perfect project for the kid’s table or just as a Thanksgiving decoration. I love that I took many shapes and turned it into a festive and fun turkey. What could you do with shapes that change what the original intention was?
