. . . but I DID have him made in time for Thanksgiving - just not posted on the blog.
Craft Goodies posted on tons of blogs, but in case you missed it, you can find the tutorial here. I didn't notice until I was writing this post that the example has the turkey feathers a lot shorter - thus avoiding the large spacing between the feathers - So I think if I made this again, I would shorten the sticks so that they wouldn't show a large gap next time.
I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I find great crafts for a holiday after the holiday is past. So I don't forget about it, I make it and put it straight into the box. It makes the holiday next year fun to pull out new decorations I didn't use last year and had forgotten I made.
The fun part was that I already had everything - a scrap piece of 2x4, a paint stick, and the giant popsicle sticks (if you buy the Provo Craft vinyl for your Cricut, it comes with a stick to rub the vinyl on - just save those and you'll have a ton of sticks to use on projects!)
