3D Turkey Art

This year I'm not decorating a ton for Thanksgiving and autumn.  I had a ton of decorations but the mice got to the box and ruin quite a bit.  I would make more but we are leaving for 10 days to go to Utah and no one is coming over for the holiday, so I'm not doing much.  I think the things that I will do are going to be more kid friendly and things that my kids can make with me.  Here is a fun turkey that I made.

I've seen a lot of people use the paper towel rolls for a lot of things.  I thought they made perfect feathers, so I used it to make a turkey.  I just cut the tubes about the width of the washi tape.

I covered the inside and outside of the cardboard with washi tape.

Then using pipe cleaners, I glued the body onto the cardboard.

Then I added the head, eyes and beak.  I thought it needed something on the bottom, so I used some foam stickers to spell out gobble.

I added some feet and then put it into a 5x7 frame.

I think it turned out pretty cute.  It was fun to make and it would be a great thing to make with your kids.
