Many years ago I made this cute little turkey at a MOM’s group meeting. It was fun and easy and every year I enjoy pulling him out for our Thanksgiving celebrations.
Now you can make one too. He is so much fun.
You hot glue the two nuts together at the “turkey neck”…
For the base or “feet” we used little wood hearts.
When I have no wood hearts on hand, I use buttons in a pinch. You just need something large enough that the turkey doesn’t topple head first.
Hot glue a little wattle made with red felt and a tiny triangle for the beak with yellow felt, two eyes and a fall leaf for the feathers. If you haven’t any leaves, you can print and cut some out on felt or just regular paper (if using paper, that would be a good time to place names for seating arrangements).
This is his mug shot. ha ha ha…
Here he is tucked away with my cornucopia.
I made this cornucopia last year. Click here to see how to make your very own. It is too easy.
Happy Thanksgiving all!
