Easy Thanksgiving Turkey DIY Craft

• When my niece suggested this one, I was like “eh,” but it is cute. I think it is more kid-ish, so keep that in mind. It would be GREAT for a children’s table centerpiece.

• Because of the hot glue gun, I suggest this craft can be made by older children under adult supervision (and you may want to man the glue gun and then have your child hold the pieces together). Goop might work (although I have not done it), but it will have a longer drying time.

• The pumpkin purchased had folds. This worked great as it hid the ends of the turkey feathers in the pumpkin-body. Keep that in mind when selecting your artificial pumpkin for the turkey’s body.

• For the beak, go from largest to smallest and glue them carefully on top of each other.
• Cut a length of red ribbon for the wattle.
• Glue the buttons on. Choose where exactly you want them to go, and lay them on, but then just glue on one at a time. Hold the button in place, pressing down to let the glue set up. Repeat the process until all the buttons are on.
• Glue the ribbon on to the beak and secure it by holding it down a minute as well.
• Next, add the turkey smile, eyelashes, and eyebrows by either using the black paint marker or a thin brush with the acrylic paint.
• Let that dry as well.
