PINE CONE TURKEY TUTORIAL!!!
|THANKSGIVING TABLE DECOR|
You will need:
6 rainbow colors of chenille stems
a pine cone,
one brown pom pom,
an orange fat/skinny chenille stem (shaped like a snowman nose)
Wrap the chenille stems around the bottom circumference of the pine cone and twist once so you have the 2 end parts sticking out like a V. Then twist those 2 together at the ends to make one teardrop shaped loop, or like a bunny’s ear. Do this again with a different color. Make all the loops on one side of the pine cone so they look like a turkey’s feathers. I make sure the pine cone can sit level on a table too.
I start with red and do orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, the order of the rainbow. Then take a glue gun and add a brown pom pom for the head on the other side of all these cute feathers. Add 2 googly eyes purchased from Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Lastly, add a snipped off piece of the orange fat chenille stem. They end up looking like a carrot but are perfect for a turkey ” beak”.

Lastly I went online and found these adorable placecard tags. I printed off 8 of them for my own Thanksgiving guests at my table. They come in pumpkin orange and kind of a sage green. I laminated them so I could reuse them next year. (If you don’t have lamination then just use a roll of clear, fat, book tape or something similar to protect them. Then use a dry erase marker for putting the family names. You can wipe it off after dinner and reuse the little turkey cards. HERE is the link for the free and printable turkey cards.

I purchased these kiddie melamine plates at Target for the upcoming Christmas holiday dinner. And they had placemats and bowls to match at Target. I love that store. I could easily make a simple snowman tablecloth if I want to matchy-match. That might be easier than placemats since my kiddie table is kinda tiny. I’ll have to see what kind of fabric they have at Hobby Lobby tomorrow.
