Craft Stick Turkey Instructions
- Lay down a few pieces of scrap paper or an old newspaper before you get started.
- Paint three craft sticks tan and let dry. This step is totally optional, and the craft stick turkeys look great unpainted, too.
- Glue your three tan craft sticks together in the shape of a triangle and let dry.
- Trace the outside of your triangle onto a piece of brown card stock, cut out and glue to the back of your tan triangle.
- Cut out a small triangle from your orange felt and glue to the center of your triangle.
- Glue two googly eyes above the orange beak.
- Cut a small 3 inch piece of red pipe cleaner, fold it in half making the bottom into a loop and twisting the top and glue the top under the orange triangle.
- Then glue five craft feathers to the back of the triangle to make a turkey and let dry.
