Glitter Turkey Craft
I know my kids enjoy spending the weeks leading up to the big family dinner making crafts that can be included in our fall table décor. This year we’re making a simple Glitter Turkey craft that can be kept on display with our fall mantel decorations until they make their big debut on our Thanksgiving Day tablescape.
- Craft Feathers
- Small Wood Rounds (also available at all major craft supply stores)
- Gold Glitter Craft Paint
- Small Triangle cut from Orange Paper
- Wiggle Eyes
- Craft Glue
How to Make a Simple Glitter Turkey
Step 1: Paint the face of each wood round with gold glitter paint and let dry completely
Step 2: Once the glitter paint is dry, turn the wood round glitter side down and apply glue to the upper half of the face of the wood round
Step 3: Glue the bases of the feathers to the wood round and let the glue dry
Step 4: Turn the wood round glitter side up, apply wiggle eyes and orange triangle beak with glue
Kids will love to see their Glitter Turkey sparkling on the Thanksgiving table, or tucked into your seasonal mantel!
