"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey

Create the perfect Thanksgiving craft with the Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey. This adorable Thanksgiving decoration is the perfect way to get your house ready for the upcoming holiday. Using some decorative tissue paper, you can transform an old work glove into your very own turkey to place anywhere around your house. It's a very simply decoupage design that even the most inexperienced crafter will be able to handle. After your turkey is complete, place him on the mantel or use him as a centerpiece during your dinner.

Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey

Materials:

  • Work gloves (or mittens)
  • Decorative and solid tissue paper to decorate turkey
  • White tissue paper (or fiber fill) to stuff glove
  • Aleene’s Matte Decoupage medium
  • Small plastic cup or paper plate (for Decoupage medium)
  • Wiggle eye(s)
  • Craft foam – orange for beak, red for wattle
  • Wood skewer
  • Wire (to secure glove to wood skewer)
  • Scissors
  • Wet wipes
  • Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Instructions:

  1. Tear white tissue paper into wide strips. Fold and crumple and push into fingers of gloves.
     
  2. For a plump turkey, crumple larger pieces of tissue paper to fill the palm section of the glove. Stuff to the wrist line.
     
  3. Stick pointed end of skewer into glove, piercing the tissue paper to help hold in place.
     
  4. Use wire to wrap tightly around wrist area of glove, securing wire in place. Wrap ends of wire and tuck cut ends into wrapped wires.
     
  5. Tear decorative tissue into small (approximately 1″ x 2″) pieces.
     
  6. Use finger(s) to apply Decoupage medium to index finger of glove. Place torn tissue over Decoupage medium and apply more Decoupage over tissue. Repeat until all four fingers are covered in tissue.
     
  7. Repeat to cover thumb and palm with solid color tissue. Do not overwork the tissue or it will start to tear as you apply the Decoupage medium.
     
  8. Let dry completely.
     
  9. Use scissors to cut away excess glove below wire.
     
  10. Cut beak and wattle from craft foam. Glue in place. Glue wiggle eye(s) in place.
