DIY Turkey Name-cards

My daughter brought home a super cute turkey name-card from preschool. As soon as I saw it, I immediately wanted to make my own flock.

Now that I’ve recreated one of these squawkers, I realize that this project involves a lot of patience. The pieces are so small that it’s probably best suited for Kindergarten on up. But the end result is awesome. You can write a name on the back of the paper, and then the turkeys serve as functional table decorations for Thanksgiving.

Here’s what you do:

Materials

  • Tootsie Roll Pops
  • fall leaves (fake or real)
  • yellow felt
  • eyes
  • paper
  • glue
  • wood hearts
  • wood circular beads

Directions

The Tootsie Roll Pop goes head down on the wooden heart.

Let the faces dry flat before you but them on their home bird.

The leaf becomes the turkey's tail feathers.

The head threads through the sucker stick. Then you add the paper and you're done!
