What I Made Wednesday {Thanksgiving Framed Rock Art}

Give Thanks

Stop me if you've seen this before. If you think you're having deja vu, you'd be half right (those memory vitamins are working). But, this is the Thanksgiving version of that wonderful Halloween craft my son and I did after gathering rocks by the river.

You'll recall I don't have much space in my home so I need crafts that can do double, even triple, duty. I came up with this framed art piece where I sprayed it with magnetic paint and chalkboard paint. I attached magnets to the rocks my son painted and, voila!, interchangeable craft for any holiday season.

For the turkey you'll also need: googly eyes and feathers, watercolor paint, hair dryer

What You'll Do

We only had white feathers for the turkey so we took watercolor paints and brushed each feather red, orange, and yellow. Before the feather dries, take a hair dryer and blow the feathers dry and fluffy.

We haven't had a chance yet, but be sure to add chalk drawings around your rocks to make it more effective.

If you've got a craft you'd like to share, please leave a comment with your craft or recipe link. I'd love to see what you're doing for the Thanksgiving holiday!
