Tom the Turkey Bulletin Board

Want to see my Sunday School bulletin board for fall?

I have had this Mr Turkey for two years.  I got it from Oriental Trading last year and got all the pieces laminated.  It stored really well and looks great again this year.  I have a lot more feathers, but I didn't think he needed any more.


I also got the cute fall border at Oriental Trading.  The border sections are fairly short, but they work just as well as the longer ones.  

The other little fall pictures were given to me.  They appear to be pretty old, but I thought they were cute and just perfect for my bulletin board.


I intended to put "Give Thanks to God", but I have not gotten that done yet.  Last year, I stapled up some fall leaves and that was cute but I felt like it was too busy on the bulletin board.

As you can see, Mr Turkey extends beyond my short bulletin board.  All of my bulletin boards are short, but very wide.  Sometimes I feel like it's harder to decorate a very wide board.  This Fall display is only half the width of this bulletin board.  I divided it to make it easier to decorate.

The church recently painted our preschool bulletin boards.  Originally they were covered in a old tan textured fabric and we would always have to cover them with colored paper. But the church painted the textured fabric with glossy black paint.  Now we don't have to put up colored paper unless we just want to.  I think the black is a perfect background and I just use it as is.

So what do you think about Mr. Turkey?
