DIY Apple Turkey Supplies
- 1 Apple (medium sized)
- Craft Feathers
- Assorted Pom Poms
- Non Toxic Craft Glue
- 1 small piece, Orange and Yellow Construction Paper
- 1 pair, Googly Eyes
It is suggested you use non toxic craft glue if you wish to eat the apple when done. If so, the pieces can be easily removed and the apple rinsed well before eating. Also, you can find the feathers and pompoms as dollar stores and general craft stores (don’t forget to use your coupon!).
DIY Apple Turkey Directions
- Rinse your apple well so the embellishments will adhere well.
- Choose 5-6 feathers and press them into the back of the apple. Or, you can use craft glue and glue them to the back. You can do this just by applying a generous dab of glue and pressing firmly into place.
- Choose a larger brown or tan pompom to use as the turkey’s head. Apply a dab of glue and press it to the opposite side of the apple as you applied the feathers. Press it firmly into place and hold for a few minutes to make sure it adheres.
- Beneath the brown pompon, add a smaller, red or pink pompon. This will be the turkey’s gobbler. Apply it as you did the head.
- Add a drop of glue to both googly eyes and attach them to the head of your turkey.
- Now your turkey needs a beak! Cut a small triangle out of a piece of yellow or orange construction paper. Glue it under the turkey’s eyes.
There you have it! In just a few minutes and with a few supplies, you have a whimsical turkey perfect for decorating your fall table! If hosting a dinner you can make one for each place setting, or just make a few for your mantel.
