Have a peek at the cutest little
Thanksgiving place settings
you’ve ever seen.
I’m only sorry that I’m just now getting around to posting this. We worked on them a couple of weeks ago, but they were finally finished (and stuffed) only this morning.
I am sure they’ll add a playful charm to our gathering.
Here’s Your HOW-TO’s:
|Using (fall-colored) scrapbook papers or cardstock, cut several 6-7″ strips, each about 1/2″ wide.|
|Make a simple template and trace the turkey body onto the decorative papers/cardstock.|
|Cut out all the turkey bodies.|
|Use your glue gun to glue the strips together to make “rounds.”|
|Use any kind of crafting leaves to assemble the turkey’s “feathers.”
(I tried it first with some of our real, pressed leaves, but found they crumbled too much when handled).
|Use glue gun to glue “feathers” at the back of the circle.|
|Cut out some turkey feet!|
|Add other details to the turkey’s body using the decorative papers:
eyes, nose, gobbler, front feathers and feet.
Glue details in place.
|Make them ridiculously adorable by adding wiggle eyes. The bigger the better, though we used a few different sizes on each of our turkeys.|
