How to Make a Thanksgiving Door Hanger

This is a crazy cheap and simple project…right up my alley! You can find most of the supplies at Dollar Tree, such as the turkey cut out, paint and metal word. I had the turkey feathers in my craft stash, but you can find them online or at a craft store.

I love to craft with Dollar Tree wood cut outs. They give you a lot of bang for your buck! You may also like my Pumpkin Truck Sign and the St. Patrick’s Day Pot O’ Gold Door Hanger that I also made with Dollar Tree wood cut outs.
