There is a tremendous lack of Thanksgiving decorations available in stores- So I have resorted to making a few key pieces for my thanksgiving decorating





Made from Paperclay and acrylic paints- The hat's armature is a 3 oz plastic cup glued to a cardboard circle for the brim the Turkey's armature is a purchased paper mache ornament - and the pumpkin's armature is a styrofoam ball

So I am not typically really into Thanksgiving decorations, but this is adorable! Everything goes together so well.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
