Alright, continuing from yesterday… Turkey Napkin Rings. This is actually a project you could get your older kids to help with… Got kids old enough to use a glue gun? Put ’em to work! (Find yesterday’s no-sew place mats HERE).
– Foam sheets in red, yellow, orange, tan and brown
– Googly eyes
– Glue Gun and glue sticks
– Cut a rectangle that measures 5.5×3 inches from the brown foam sheet
– Cut two feather shapes from each of the other four colors. I free-handed one feather and then used it as a template for the rest of my feathers.
– Cut a triangle shape for the beak from the orange foam.
– Cut a gobbler shape from the red foam. I’m sure this has some correct term and I probably had to learn it once upon a time, but I don’t know what it is now.
– Cut feet shapes from the orange foam. (side note: I ended up having to score the back of the legs to get them to pop out. If you intend to use these standing up, you’ll need to do the same so the legs don’t push the turkey over).
– Glue the short sides of the brown rectangle together to make a cylinder shape.
– Glue the feathers on the back of the brown cylinder. I worked from the outsides in.
– Glue the feet to the front of one of the open ends of the cylinder.
– Glue on the googly eyes, beak and gobbler.
– Fold napkin and insert into one end of the cylinder. Pull it through and rearrange so it’s pretty.
