Turkey Votive

Turkey Votive made from  dollar store supplies

Here is another quick and easy turkey craft just in time for turkey day.  The glass bowl is from the dollar store.  The head is made from a ping pong ball, also from the dollar store. The feathers are from Michaels.  I think I got them for about $2, and there are plenty in the package to make several crafts. 

I know turkeys are brown, but I decided to go with orange so it would be easier to see the light when it was turned on.  I used acrylic paint that also works on glass on both the bowl and the ping pong ball.  Once it was dry, I used a glue gun to add the feathers to the back and the head to the front.   I used felt for the beak, but it can also be made from paper, craft foam, or anything else you want to use. 

My votive found a home in the downstairs bathroom near a bouquet of fall flowers.  Inside the bowl is a battery operated tea light that is also found at the dollar store.

    1. Thank you Winnie.. My daughter was making fun of it being orange, but if it was brown the light would not show through.. :)

  2. I wish I had these all over my house! So cute! Thanks for sharing!

  3. How cute! I love it when it's all lit up with the candle inside.

  4. Very cute! Looks like something my little one would love to "help" make. :)

  5. So cute and easy to pull together. I love crafts like that. I don't always have the time to craft, so this would be perfect.

  6. Love them! My daughter would have a blast making these with me :)

  7. This is SO cute. I pinned it. =0)
    I love how it looks with the glow, but it's super cute without being lit too.


I would love to hear from you!
