Doily Turkey

Turkey crafts are always so darn cute. I don't know if it's all the feathers, the gobbler, or the fun colors, but we can't get enough turkey creations especially come November. When my daughter first came face-to-face with a real turkey, she cried. I think she was expecting something much more darling like our doily turkey....real turkeys--not so darling! So if you want an adorable little turkey, stick to this fun doily craft.

  • Step 3

    Once everything is dry you can gather some materials for the turkey face. We used a piece of felt for the beak, dried corn for eyes (very festive), and a feather for the top of the cute little turkey's head.

    Fold your doily to the size of the clothespin and glue the clothespin right in the center.

    Next, add a face and any other fun turkey additions you can think up. We thought a red feather on top of his head was a must!
