Thanksgiving Craft: Glass Block Turkey

I love ice block crafts.  I have made Christmas ones and a few for every day display, but I never thought of doing one for Thanksgiving.  As I packed-up the Halloween decor today, I realized I basically have no Thanksgiving decorations.  This glass block turkey will be perfect for my mantel.

Back when I first started making glass block displays, they didn’t sell the blocks in craft stores.  You had to buy them at a home improvement store and drill a hole in the bottom yourself.  Thank goodness for craft stores!  They have made my life exponentially easier.

Here is what you need to make this Glass Block Turkey:

  • Small glass block, 5.5 inch x 5.5 inch
  • Brown glass enamel paint
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Patterned scrapbook paper in coordinating fall colors
  • Orange and red paper, or orange and red acrylic paints
  • wooden craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
  • White glue, such as Elmer’s
  • Heat resistant glue, such as a two part epoxy
  • decoupage medium, such as Mod Podge
  • 2 googly eyes
  • scissors
  • paint brush
  • A string of orange Halloween lights (50 light strand works well)

Here is how to make it thanks to Crafts for All Seasons -> Glass Block Turkey Tutorial

Don’t forget your coupons as you head out to the craft store.
