I’m working on getting the house ready for our family for Thanksgiving dinner next week. I’m using lots of natural elements like tree stumps, pine cones, sticks, fall foliage and pumpkins. But, Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without a turkey!
Do you remember making clothespin turkeys? I decided to give this classic Thanksgiving craft an update to keep with my neutral theme.
I used an old book to make the feathers. I distressed the edges with brown ink to give it a little more dimension. The face was made using googly eyes, orange craft foam, and red felt.
A few of the clothespins were painted brown and a few I covered with orange and white striped washi tape. These little turkeys will feel right at home in my rustic and natural Thanksgiving centerpiece.
