It’s Sweet, but Not the Bird of My Dreams!

I bought this turkey craft (minus the lollipops—I had to supply those myself) at a craft fair many years ago.
For obvious reasons, it is one of my children’s all-time favorite decorations.

I love it too, but I wanted to jazz it up a little. Last year, I was all crazy to take this one that I bought at Kohl’s (regular cute craft—no holes for the lollies) and use it as my guide to make…

this one that I gave to a friend. Lollipop Turkeys 1

Unfortunately, it took for-EVER to make and I didn’t even want to make one for me after that.

But, I still want a new one.

And, I kind of want it to not tip over because both of these tip once they are loaded up with lollipops. Actually, they don’t tip with Dum Dum lollipops because Dum Dums are little, but Dum Dums don’t work as bribery for my children aren’t as fun to eat pretty as the big ol’ Tootsie Pop Lollipops.

And speaking of pretty, at the right--or wrong--angle, this one just isn’t!

This year, after Thanksgiving of course, I am on the hunt for a super cute and super cheap wooden turkey craft that is already made for me. Then, I am going to add a little here and there to keep the turkey upright, drill some holes in all of the right places, and finally get...

the bird of my dreams!

What do you think?
Will it work?
And, to all of those in the United States,
Happy Thanksgiving
