I got one last Thanksgiving project in and just in the nick of time; after I'd finished my food responsibilities and before I go to the airport to pick up our moms!



I was given the reproduction, two-piece chocolate mould as a birthday gift back in January. I am pretty sure it would not be good to use to make a giant chocolate turkey both for health and logistical reasons, so I felt comfortable drillling holes in it for the eyelets. I had every single bit of supplies in my stash: eyelets, handmade bias tape, burlap ribbon, D-rings, and orange twine. (the color in the photos is a bit off, the twine is an orange-red and the eyelets are a golden tan n real life)



There is another eyelet in the top of the ribbon for hanging. It hangs on the side of the kitchen cabinets that you walk by to enter the kitchen from the living room.

This is so much better than I expected from the title alone! I was fearing some sort of odd gelatin concoction...

Is it just an aluminum mold? It must be pretty lightweight! And, it does look like you could still use it if you wanted, just in case you have a sudden urge for a turkey-shaped, fruit-fill gelatin dessert...

tight

It's too heavy for aluminum; my guess would be some kind of "tin." It's just a reproduction of a vintage chocolate mould and made in China as a decoration, so I am doubtful it is food safe and know for sure that it's not "water" tight. It would be a horrendous mess for jello and require A LOT of trimming for chocolate.

Here...have some lead with your chocolate! Smiley

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

As appealing as a jiggly turkey dessert sounds, I am quite glad you went with elegant wall decor instead. But I bet your post for a jello turkey would be hilarious.

Haha! Thanks! Luckily for me, it's a (fake) chocolate mould!
