Thanksgiving Handprint Turkeys

I don’t really think you can make it through the Thanksgiving holiday without a handprint turkey or two.  So… here it is! Our handprint turkey family! 

Thanksgiving handprint turkeys for the whole family!
I have lots of handprint projects from the kids but I thought that it would be fun for Dave and me to join in on the fun this time!  Its’ kind of scary how close Matthew’s hand size is to mine!  This is a really simple project that gets the whole family involved.  I did cut out the kids’ hands for them but there was a lot of gluing and punching that they could still do!

  • I had an old canvas that was given to me by a friend about a year ago.  I knew I would get around to using it eventually!

  • I painted over it with beige acrylic paint {a few good coats were needed}.  I then taped the edges with painter’s tape and painted a dark brown border around it. 
  •  The handprint turkeys are pretty straight forward.  I used some old scrapbook paper for the feathers and inked the edges of everything with brown ink.  The circles are just from a punch.
