  • 1

    Make three triangles from the tissue paper using the pinecone turkey craft pattern. Take the scissors and gently cut the tissue paper as you do not want it to rip in half; you will want a nice clean edge. Since the paper is folded, you will want nine triangles to use.

    Make a tail feather by taking the triangle and bringing together at the base. Make different colored tail feathers with the tissue paper. Once you have a decent looking tail you will need to apply some glue to make sure that each piece is stuck to one another. Use all nine pieces of the tissue paper to make a nice tail.

    Use some more glue to attach the entire tail section to the pinecone. Make sure that you allow it to dry for it to properly sit.

  • 4

    You can use the pinecone turkey pattern or just make your own turkey head shape out of the construction paper or card stock. Make sure that it is proportionate with the entire shape and style of the pinecone turkey. You can also make a beak for the turkey using the construction paper. It is entirely up to you to decide the color of the paper for both the head and beak of the turkey.

    Attach eyes on to the turkey’s head. You can use wiggly eyes or if you don’t have any then just use some big buttons. Make sure to glue them on properly. Also, glue the beak to the head of the turkey.

    To make a gobbler for the turkey you will need to use tissue paper. Carefully glue it near the beak on the turkey’s head.
