I had promised someone that when I ever found the pics of my homemade turkey fan mounts I would post the pics of how I do it so here we go:

This is a pic of one of the first ones I ever made. I made it in the shape of a keystone cause it was a PA turkey and PA is the Keystone state. I have the pic stored in my computer and size it to my needs and print it. I then use carbon paper to trace that to the prepared plaque. I then woodburn the entire image. This was my first attempt and I do a little better now. Next are a couple of more recent plaques done in the round. The one enclosed in a Keystone is PA and the one with the sunflower is Kansas.

The small block beneath is glued to the back bottom and holds the Lower legs with the spurs, and the center hole holds the beard.
This next pic shows the back of a completed fan mount. A length of heavy wire holds the fan in and serves as a hanger.

There you have it very little if any cost and about 15 to 20 hrs to do everything woodburning included.
If God had a refrigerator would your picture be on it.
