Pine Cone Lil' Turkeys - Simple Kid Crafts

Pine Cone Turkeys

Miniature Pine Cone Turkey's for the kiddies or for the table...ENJOY !!!

Yellow and red felt
Tacky glue
Googly eyes
Brown pom-poms
Pipe cleaners

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. For each turkey, cut out a yellow beak and a red wattle from felt. Then glue the beak, wattle, and a pair of googly eyes onto a pom-pom to create the turkey's head.

2. Glue the pom-pom head to the tip of a pinecone. Allow the glue to dry.

3. Wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of the turkey's cone body, starting from the top and twisting it together a few times on the underside. Separate the ends of the pipe cleaner (below the twists) and bend each tip into a 3-toed foot.

4. For the turkey's tail, individually wrap 3 or 4 pipe cleaners around the back of the pinecone, starting from the underside and twisting them together a few times on the top of the pinecone to secure them. Then loop both ends of each pipe cleaner to shape tail feathers.
