Pine cone Turkey

A quick fall craft using bits of nature! And great to use to decorate for Thanksgiving...

pine cone (the more round the better)
leaves of various color
googly eyes
yellow foam or paper for the beak
red felt for wattle

We used the stem end of the pine cone as the head. Glue the leaves to the pine cone between the scales of the pine cone arranging them like feathers. Glue the eyes, beak, and wattle.

If you have brown pompoms available you might try using those as the head and glue the eyes, beak, and wattle to that.

I'm not sure how long the leaves will stay this vibrant, but you could use all sorts of things instead of leaves...paper, feathers, etc.
