Thanksgiving Craft: Turkey Garland

I saw this cute place setting craft at my favorite paper store


and I'd been thinking of making a garland with my oldest, so I decided to make a variation of this cute turkey. I had all the materials except the eyes, so that was $1.99 spent.

First I punched out the body out of brown construction paper and cut tan triangles for the beaks:


Then my boy added googly eyes - we thought that would be a lot more fun! I asked him to go crazy coloring with oranges and reds on yellow paper, for the plumage.


Some of them looked silly, and my son said he wanted to make them all different because people are all different :D


Then we taped the turkeys onto orange curling ribbon:


Et voila! Here is our beautiful, fun, and very silly turkey garland!!!


I love walking into my house and seeing this fun garland that my son and I made together. He loves doing crafts with me and I am planning more Thanksgiving fun - hope you enjoyed our Turkey Garland!
