Craft Difficulty Rating: Easy

You Will Need:

  • Pine cone (either find one outside or you can buy them at a craft store)

  • Feathers, assorted colors

  • Scrap pieces of orange, yellow, red and black foam

  • Glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut out foam pieces to make the turkey's beak (orange), wattle (red) and eyes (black with yellow circles).

  2. Glue the pieces on to the turkey to create his face.

  3. Glue feathers on the turkey by placing a small dab of glue onto the bottom of a feather and sticking the feather into the back of the turkey. Use multiple feather colors to create his tail feathers. Let everything dry.

  4. Your turkey is done.

Interesting fact: Only male turkeys have a wattle, so if you want a girl turkey for this project, leave off the red wattle.
