I saw this craft at Family Fun.Go and I just thought it was so cute I had to try it with my daughter. And since she went pine cone hunting with grandma a few weeks ago we have a lot of pine cones to use in fun projects. I must say that they were a little too hard for my 4yr old to do on her own so I ended up doing most of it. But she did have fun watching our turkey come to life.
Large brown pom pom (I did not have one so I glued 3 small black ones together)
5 Pipe cleaners
Glue (I used a glue gun, but craft glue would work fine)
Start by cutting out a nose and wattle from the construction paper. You can use the pattern we used for our paddle turkeys if you want. Now glue the googly eyes nose and waddle to your pom pom to make the turkey face.
Glue your turkey face to the flat part of the pinecone.
Take one orange pipe cleaner and twist it around the center of your pinecone. Now take the ends of the pipe cleaner and bend it to make three toes for each end.
Choose four different color pipe cleaners you want to use for the tail and wrap them around the end of your turkey to form your tail.
