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
