DIY: Last minute thanksgiving decor

Thanksgiving must go on, even in the midst of our mess of a move!!!  Tall Man’s parents are coming, My mother has flown in from the other side of the country and the cooking has started!

So for a last minute super easy super quick wall decor we made a family turkey.  The cost for this project ( if you were to go and buy construction paper and a glue stick) would be under $3.  And I threw it together in less than 15 minutes.

1st make the feathers – Trace 1 hand of each household member using alternate colors of paper, fold paper in half and cut out 2 identical (but opposite hands).

Next make the turkeys body by cutting out a bowling pin/ butternut squash shape, use your glue stick to glue on a small triangle for the beak, a small circle for the eye, and the pilgrim hat (a square with a thin rectangle for the brim). 

Attach your turkey to the wall ( tacks, staples, tape, chewing gum – whatever you feel comfortable with I used a piece of tape on each side of the turkey where the feathers would cover it.

Now glue your Feather hands on to the turkey body using the glue stick, starting with the biggest set of hands and working down to the smallest.


And there you go!


The family Thanksgiving turkey!!!
