Pine Cone Turkey Craft

These cute little turkeys make an easy craft to do with your kids and a great table decoration!

You will need:
  • Pinecone(s)
  • Construction paper: brown, red, yellow, orange
  • Small googly eyes (DM Alternative: sharpie marker)
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

1. Cut out a head shape from the brown construction paper.
2. Cut out a small triangle from the orange paper for the beak.
3. Cut out a heart shape from the red paper for the wattle.
4. Glue on googly eyes. 
5. Glue on the wattle.
6. Glue on the beak. Have the bottom of the beak slightly overlap the wattle. Set 
    aside to dry.
7. Cut out feather shapes from the yellow, red, and orange paper. I made a few 
    different sizes.
8. Place glue on the bottom of the feathers and stick in between pine cone slots. 
    Overlap the feathers.
9. Glue on head. You may have to hold in place for a minute until the glue starts 
    to hold in place.
10. Wipe off any excess glue before it dries.
