Turkey Silhouette Decorations for Thanksgiving Day
Traditional decorations for Thanksgiving Day are homemade turkey silhouette decorations. You can make turkey napkin holders, pinecone turkey, teepee centerpieces, luminary, turkey headbands for your kids, turkey plaques or woven turkey placemats.
To make pinecone turkey you will need googly eyes, construction paper, glue, fall-colored pipe cleaners and brown pom balls. At first, cut out a wattle from red construction paper and a beak from yellow. Glue them to a pinecone. Then glue 2 brown pom balls to make googly eyes. Make feet from the yellow or orange pipe cleaner wrapping it around the pinecone center and twisting tight underneath. Then separate ends and bend them into turkey's feet.
To make the turkey's tail twist the pipe cleaners around its back and then into loops. To make turkey napkin holders you will need empty paper towels and construction paper.
At first, cut turkey wattle, head and feet from brown, red and yellow construction paper. Then cut empty paper towels into 'rings' and glue yellow or brown construction paper around these 'rings'.
Finally, set out colorful feathers and googly eyes. Fold the napkin in accordion style, pull through the 'ring' and fan out. Your turkey napkin holder is ready! How to make teepee centerpieces?
Take collect leaves, bird feathers and small sticks. Take the construction paper and form cone shapes from it. The cone shapes should have wide openings at the bottom and small openings at the top. Glue the overlapping ends of the paper. Let the glue dry and make a base if you want.
Finally glue feathers, stick and leaves to the outside of these teepees. The sticks should stick out of the teepee's top. Homemade turkey silhouette decorations will liven up your celebration and make it unforgettable for your kids. Be creative and have fun making amazing turkey decorations for Thanksgiving day!
