Quick Turkey Art For Your Thanksgiving Table

This is just a quick post that you might even be able to do on Thanksgiving,  especially if you are using paper plates and have some markers and crayons on hand! Here are our Cute turkeys that you can even set out on your Thanksgiving Table:

Here is how to make them.  First,  cut a paper plate in half.

Decorate one half with colorful feathers and the other half brown (or another color) for the head I added eyes,  but you could wait for that part until the head is formed in the next step.

Next staple the head piece into a cone like this and add eyes.

Add a construction paper beak, wattle, and pilgrim hat.  Staple on the feather part to the head and then you have a nice addition to your Thanksgiving display or dinner table!  Here is mine.

Here is C's turkey!

So simple and cute!  

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!

I am thankful to be able to provide creative inspiration to you each week!

Enjoy your families and give thanks for the simplest things!!!

  9. Melissa, These are really cute, and I do think the best kind of table decorations are those made by one's child!
    Hoping you have had a good Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
    I do think being thankful for the simple things is important - it keeps one grounded I think. What more do we need than our child's smiles; the laughter of friends and family; the beauty of nature around us?
