Cutest Ever #Turkeypumpkin #Thanksgivingcenterpiece- Reuse and use items from around your house

Posted on November 5, 2015 at 5:56 PM Comments comments ()
Happy #thankfulthursday!  I am #thankful for all the wonderful crafts my daughter and I make together and the quality time we spend together while making them... like this one!  So cute, so easy to make, so much fun!     Items needed for #TurkeyPumpkin:  One Pumpkin,     Glue stick or Hot Glue gun (adult supervision required-the glue can get very hot.  Glue gun might work better for you to adhere the feather hands, eyes, nose and wattles).   More items listed below.

We had most of these items around the house. We reused a pumpkin that we had from Halloween.
Red, orange, yellow and brown construction paper
For fun, easy and inexpensive crafts always have a supply of construction paper in the house of various colors.

Pencil to trace your kids hands and your hands

Scissors to cut out hand shapes to use as feathers.

Paint the pumpkin together to make the pumpkin brown to use as the #turkey body of this craft.

After pumpkin is painted and dried.  Adhere the cut-out hand shapes on the back as feathers.  It was fun to use both my hands and my daughters hands as feathers.  The size variety was a nice touch to make the feathers fuller.  We also had fun taking turns tracing each others hands both left and right hands.

Glue the eyes on the front. Cut a triangle out of construction paper for the nose, fold in half and glue under the eyes. Cut the wattle from red construction paper and attach under the nose. That's it!
This could very well be the cutest #turkeypumpkin ever!
Love, love, love this craft! So much fun! So easy! And so inexpensive! That's my motto! Hope you have the time to make this one to use as a #thanksgivingcenterpiece for your Thanksgiving table. So much we learned and shared: fun, creativity, I even learned with the red thing under the turkey's nose is called (the wattle). Enjoy your #Thanksgiving with family and friends. Remember to be grateful and live in the moment of the day. Cherish one another and make the time and take the time to enjoy your kids. Happy Thanksgiving! All of my best, Dyan
This could very well be the cutest #turkeypumpkin ever!
