Hey, hope you are all getting excited over the new Ribbon Club Assortment - Colors of Autumn Assortment - it's super gorgeous!! The colors are so vivid and just great for all your fall projects. :D
Well I want to share with you all a cute little turkey candle holder I created using these beautiful ribbons. I created one of these about 2 years ago or so but it was different. I used the same concept for the front of the turkey but used the rosette technique with the ribbons instead of using feather. I think he turned out cute.
So here is my little Turkey guy, hope you all like it. I know it's a bit different than the usual but I thought it would be a nice change. :D
To create the back of the turkey I cut out 3 1/2 , 3, 2 1/2 inch circles.
I used score tape around the circles and then got my ribbons and
started the rosette only going around half way. I then used 3D adhesive
to stack the rosettes on top of one another, in a layered look. I used my little
scallop punch for the front of the turkey's body. I hot glued him to the small
mason jar. I used googly eyes and cut a beak and did a snood.
I wanted to show y'all another close up of the turkey and the ribbons.
Here are the Ribbons I used 5/8"Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon Turftan Brown;
5/8"Square in Square Print Satin Ribbon Kiwi Green; 5/8"Square in Square print Satin Ribbon Tangerine to create the rosettes for the Turkey's feathers. I also used the cute
3/8"Checkerboard Satin Ribbon Tangerine for his bow tie.
Here shows a close up side view of the ribbons layered.
I used the 1.5 inch Brown Netting to decorate the mason jar
which I wrapped around the mason jar and then wrapped the
3/8"Autumn Bold Diagonal Stripe Grosgrain ribbon wrapped that on top.
I used hot glue to adhere both ribbons to the mason jar.
