Introduction: Krylon Paint + Old Shovels & Scrap Metal + Some Welding = Lawn Turkey

We get a lot of wild turkeys in our backyard.  I thought I would make a more permanent colorful turkey for the backyard.  Maybe the real ones will treat it like a shrine or God .    Probably not.  :)

I had 4 old shovels that were not being used plus some other steel scrap that I welded in the shape of a turkey

Then using Krylon paint, I primed and painted it as can be seen in the photos

It now sits in the backyard.  I need to get a photo of when the real turkeys come and gather around it.   Which , in fact, does happen.
