Thanksgiving Turkey Table-Topper DIY

table topper

Do you need a cute little table-topper for Thanksgiving dinner? What about a few? Have the kids get crafty and create turkey table-toppers out of regular household items (and a few artsy items)!

Materials:

  • Bathroom cups
  • Card stock paper
  • Clear drying school glue
  • Googley eyes
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Felt

Instructions:

  1. Cover two paper bathroom-sized cups with brown, tan or yellow craft felt. Cut the felt to the size needed, and glue it onto the cups.
  2. Glue the cups together, end to end. If the cups won’t balance (without falling over), stack one on top of the other. Make the bottom cup’s felt stick out a bit first. This will keep the top cup standing up.
  3. Draw ovals onto card stock paper, making turkey feathers.
  4. Write each family member’s or guest’s name onto a feather.
  5. Glue the feathers to the back of the bottom cup. Make sure that each turkey gets one name feather.
  6. Add a face to the top cup. Glue two googley eyes onto the felt. Cut out a triangle for the beak. Glue it upside down below the eyes. Another option is to make a 3-D beak. Fold the end of the triangle under to make a tab. Glue the tab onto the felt.
