Turkey Chair Hanging

This is my second project for miss Tracy over at Craft Junkie Too. She challenged her team to do a project that hangs, cleverly calling it "Fall is in the Air."  It inspired me to do some fun decorating for Thansgiving.  Please be sure and stop by her blog to see the other gals' fabulous creations as well.
Here soon I will be shooting a video showing my whole Thanksgiving table decor all put together.  It's almost done and turning out very cute.
I created this simple little turkey hanging to hang from the backs of all our dining room chairs for Thanksgiving.

I cut the turkey from Create a Critter at 5 inches.

I embellished him with googly eyes, a bit of ribbon, and lots of white gel pen doodling

I cut a piece of cardstock at 6.75 inches by 8.5 inches

I used the Martha Stewart Ribbon Loop punch around the page set all the way around the cardstock

I mounted the turkey onto the cardstock using pop dots

I finished off by punching 2 of the larger sized holes with my Crop-a-Dile & threaded ribbon through the holes

I just used tape to attach the ribbon to the back of the chair
Thanks for stopping by today :)  I hope you enjoyed this project!
