Pom Pom Turkeys

Here's another turkey craft for anyone looking for some last-minute ideas. It's very easy. Cut construction paper into 3 sizes of semi-circles. Glue them together with the smallest one on the top.
Fold them accordion style.
These are the turkey's feathers. Cut a square from card stock paper (construction paper would work, too) and use craft glue to attach the feathers to the square so it stands up.
I just used a toothpick to spread the glue along the bottom of the feathers. In the past I've used regular Elmer's glue and it worked fine, but you might have to hold it a little longer. Craft glue only takes a few seconds. (I used Aleene's tacky glue.)
Then take a large pom pom and use a toothpick with glue to attach wiggle eyes, a beak and a snood. Then dip the pom pom into the glue and stick it on the square in front of the feathers.
The kids really enjoyed making these!

And they turned out so cute! I think they would make neat name place cards for the Thanksgiving dinner table.

Gobble, gobble!
