Last year, my Thanksgiving cookies were all about the turkey, thanks to all the creative bloggers who posted various designs and tutorial. This year, I decided that the Thanksgiving cookie collection would not have ANY turkeys, not one! After all, how many different ways can you design a turkey?
Since I have never made Scarecrow cookies, I decided a fall theme would replace the traditional bird. My husband is usually enthusiastic about my designs, but not this time. He said, "Thanksgiving without a turkey? I don't get it." I was not deterred, I just kept telling myself, "no turkeys."
Sugarbelle's instruction's to re-purpose a Snowman cutter.
Of course, a Scarecrow needs crows, so I re-purposed a carrot cutter and took design inspiration from a childhood cartoon.
I added another crow design when I found this cute creation by Nanny.
At this point, I started second guessing myself . . .Thanksgiving + bird = turkey, NOT crows! Turkeys needed to be added to the collection.
My second scarecrow design was made with a re-purposed hamburger cutter, thanks to the creativity of Jill FCS. I thought his hat would be a good place to include a turkey in the collection.
When a surprise package arrived in the mail, I knew that I couldn't wait until Christmas to use these cutters! Thanks, Donna.
Bearfootbaker's turkey design created with a re-purposed acorn cutter would be the perfect bird to disguise. I bagged these cookies and added a little tag that said, "I am not a turkey."
Finally, when I saw this adorable football turkey designed by Jill FCS, I knew I had to add them to the collection. They reminded me of the fun I had a few years ago collaborating on a football design with my Sugar Sister .
Scarecrows, crows, turkeys, football and, snowmen. . .so much for themes. I guess my design style is eclectic.
