Make turkeys out of pine cones to liven up your Thanksgiving table.
What You Need
- pine cone
- autumn leaves
- googly eyes
- round tree nut (such as an acorn or a hickory nut)
- yellow felt
- red felt
- tacky glue
- hot glue (optional)
What To Do
- To create the turkey’s tail, glue leaves to the bottom of the pine cone, as shown.
- Cut a triangle bill from yellow felt, and a snood from red felt. Glue these shapes and the googly eyes onto the nut to create the turkey’s head.
- Glue the turkey’s head onto the pine-cone body. (You can use hot glue instead of tacky glue for this step. The glue will dry much quicker—but ask an adult for help.)
