I came across this gem and knew I had to make it for Kate because how cute is it! I started by painting some clothes pins to be the feathers.
I cut the edge off of a paper plate to be the base of the turkey and spaced the clothes pins around to see how many I would need it. Looks like 12.
Then I painted them red, orange and yellow.
I used the plate as a stencil to make a circle out of brown construction paper.
And I modeled the rest of the turkey after this one. I inked up the edges so that you could see them.
Then I gave it a face.
I cut some strips of paper in red, orange and yellow and glued them around the edge to show where the clothes pins should go.
At this point, I realized that I needed to laminate it so it didn’t fall apart, but since I’m not a teacher anymore I don’t have access to a laminating machine. Mod Podge to the rescue!
I give this one 2 thumbs up. Kate was a huge fan.
