Gobble Word Set

Now that Halloween is behind us, it's time to take down those cobwebs (both real and fake), and put up some fall and Thanksgiving decorations!! I love all the fall colors, and I'm not quite ready to decorate for Christmas yet.

I have a few Thanksgiving decorations (you can see the whole collection in the tutorials tab), but my mantel looked a little naked after taking down my Halloween decor. "Thanks" to Wood Creations, I now have one spectacular piece of Thanksgiving spirit on display!

I ordered the Gobble Word Set from Wood Creations ($18.99), and it got here quickly and was wrapped up so nice! Everything was cut out for me, and very few of the pieces needed minimal sanding to prepare to be painted. I also received some coordinating scrapbook paper to use on the project.

The part that took me the longest was deciding on what colors each letter needed to be. Paint all the letters with the colors of your choice (I found the perfect colors in my DecoArt paint collection). The turkey is painted all brown except for his legs, which are yellow. He also has a section on the top part of his head where the hat should go, so I painted it black.

I decided on one of the "B"s, the "L", and the feathers to be covered in scrapbook paper, so I also painted them brown to blend in with the paper. Tip: I highly recommend tracing any letters or pieces you will be covering with scrapbook paper before painting. Sometimes you get pencil marks on the letters, so you might as well cover them up with paint!

Next, my favorite part: get out the glitter and Mod Podge!! Place the wood piece over a scrap piece of paper and paint a medium coat of Mod Podge on the area you want to cover with glitter. Carefully pour a bunch of glitter over the wood piece and let sit for a few minutes, then carefully turn the piece over and tap off the excess glitter.

There are a couple of ways you can do this so your letters won't always be getting glitter everywhere. You can paint another coat of Mod Podge over top to seal the glitter, or I've also used a few coats of clear spray paint and it keeps everything in place. Another option is to mix some Mod Podge in a disposable cup, then paint the mix on your wood piece. Let dry completely and you're all set!

The turkey had the most steps of the whole set, and I am absolutely in love with this little guy. I used gold glitter on his beak and legs, the same red glitter as the "G" on his wattle (yes, that's really what it's called!) and some black glitter on his top hat that makes him look so dapper. Once all the pieces were dry, I attached them to the turkey body with some E6000.

Let everything dry completely, then put it up on a mantel to bring in the Thanksgiving holiday!
