After our last post we’ve had some really lovely emails from people telling us all about their family’s thanksgiving traditions. Many seem to revolve around family recipes, crafts and binge watching TV and it sounds like such a fabulous family and friends filled day! The lovely emails that we received inspired us to make another turkey themed craft. We have a huge bag of craft feathers which are rarely touched and desperately needed to be trimmed down, so we came up with cute little Thanksgiving turkey wreath and we absolutely love him. The combination of different fall colours is just so beautiful!
Here’s what we used
- Paper plate
- Brown paint and paintbrush
- Coloured card
How to make our Thanksgiving turkey wreath
Take your paper plate and cut out the inner circle. Cover both pieces in brown paint and then put them aside to dry.
Once dry, take your smaller circle and turn it in to the turkey’s face by adding two eyes, a beak and a dangly red wattle.
Glue the head circle onto the bottom of your wreath and then add two long legs to the back of it.
Cover the outer ring of the wreath in glue and stick the feathers all the way around. Once ours was dry we simply used a pair of scissors to trim off any excess feather on the inside of the wreath. Your adorable Thanksgiving turkey wreath is finished! If you wish to hang him up somewhere, simply punch a hole at the top and thread some string through!
