Games & Crafts! Turkey Time!

Feeling crafty?  How about piecing together some fun and playful Thanksgiving decorations using extra game pieces and cards you have laying around?  These festive little critters are quick and easy to assemble! 

For each of mine, I simply cut 5 cards into long tear-drop shapes, using most of one card for each feather.  Using a drinking glass as a guide, I cut a cardboard coaster into a large circle for a turkey body.  Tokens made great little feet and heads.  Using a glue stick for these, and some packaging tape and glue to hold the feathers on, they were quickly assembled. 

Voila!  Playful Turkeys complete! 

I’m now ready to tape a loop of string to his back to hang him on a wall, or perhaps to make more and use them as place card holders at a party, with my guest’s names written on the Turkeys’ tummies.   

I love the autumn colors from World’s fair and the playful energy of Kitty Paw!
