To create the turkey’s body, I used a rectangle scrap of a 2 in. x4 in. wood piece. I found a small wood square for the head, and a round wood circle for the middle. If you don’t have wood scraps around, you could use the same shapes out of paper to create your turkey.
The square head includes two googly eyes, a smile created with a sharpie pen and a red balloon scrap for the turkey’s snood.
Faux leaves were added to the back for the turkey’s feather. I was able to attach everything using a hot glue gun.
Turkeys are an interesting looking animal! Get creative and add orange, yellow, brown and/or red acrylic paint.
With a sharpie, I added "Happy Thanksgiving," you could also include what you are most thankful for this year!
They are too cute not to make one for yourself! Get creative with your crafty turkey! Great to make with children or adults.
Join us for Crafternoon at the Museum of Visual Materials on Monday, November 12th 4:00-5:30pm to create your own turkey!
