We've got one last Thanksgiving craft for you - a turkey hat! It's made from cardboard and we used a variety of painting techniques for the feathers.
- Pom Poms
- Plastic knife
- Plastic Lid
Step 1: Cut two cardboard circles, one for head and one for body. Glue together.
Step 2: Cut two eyes from cardstock. Glue to turkey head and add a pom pom in the center of each one.
Step 3: From cardboard or cardstock, cut a beak and wattle and glue to the turkey face.
Step 4: Cut a large half circle and two smaller half circles. To each half circle, add dots of paint to the outer edge. Scrape downward with plastic knife. Allow to dry.
Step 5: Dip plastic lid in paint and use to decorate the wings, tail feathers and turkey body. Allow to dry.
Step 6: Create a band from cardboard, size to fit and secure with stapler. Glue turkey head and body to cardboard band.
Step 7: Cut a notch in the center of each of the wings. Cut two notches in the tail feather piece so it sits across the cardboard band.
Step 8: Place the wings and tail feather on the cardboard band.
A fun addition to Thanksgiving!
