Gobble Wood Craft and GIVEAWAY! (ENDED)

Pin It

I picked up a "Gobble" wood craft kit for Thanksgiving at Crafty Wood Cutouts in Orem.  It was really easy to do, and only took about 2 hours from start to finish.


First I traced the letters on the wrong side of the paper.  I made sure the letter was upside-down when I traced.  You could trace on the front side of the paper leaving the letter right-side-up, but I chose to do it this way so I wouldn't have to erase any pencil marks.


Then I painted the sides and back of each letter.  I painted every side of each piece of the turkey.


I also painted just around the edges of the front side of the letters in case the paper didn't end up being cut exactly to each edge.


While the paint was drying, I cut out the letters I had traced on the scrapbook paper.


Once the paint was completely dry, I used Mod Podge to secure each paper cutout to each wood piece.  Never used Mod Podge?  Just paint a layer where you want the paper to go, using it as a glue.  Smooth your paper over the wood making sure there are no bubbles or creases.  Paint another layer of Mod Podge over the top to finish it off.  The Mod Podge will be creamy at first, but it dries clear.


For the turkey, I painted just the top of each piece with Mod Podge.  I spread the glitter all over and let dry.  I shake the excess glitter off onto a piece of cardstock, and put it back in the glitter container for future use.  I then used wood glue to glue the pieces together.


I added ribbons and raffia to the G, B, L, and E.


I added 3 jewels to one of the Bs.


It turned out great!  This would be perfect project to do with a young woman working on Personal Progress, or a ladies craft night!
