CottageCutz Turkey Altered Candle

Hello crafters and welcome to another Thanksgiving project share from the "On the Farm" Collection from CottageCutz.  Today I am excited to show you this altered candle from the dollar store.  I have been wanting to do something with one of these fun candles for some time.  You can just about see the glow in this picture.  It's a color changing candle with a flicker light on the top.  Imagine how pretty this will be on your Thanksgiving table.  It was fast, fun, and easy to create.
The Turkey die from CottageCutz is mounted directly on the candle.  To color the Turkey, Brushed Corduroy and Barn Door distress inks were used.   The Sunflowers is another pretty CottageCutz die that were cut on yellow cardstock and lightly inked with Brushed Corduroy as well and glitter with Diamond stickles.  The bottom is a scalloped Spellbinders die with a circle of Thanksgiving designer paper mounted on top.  The same paper was cut 1/4 inch and glued to the top of the candle.
Here it's shown on top of a candlestick-which is also a great look to give it some height on the table.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visit.  Until next time,  Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:
