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.

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!
