Salt Dough Turkey Centerpiece

Several years ago I made a beautiful turkey centerpiece out of salt dough. Unfortunately, I cannot find the instructions. I remember that the dough was rolled out then cut with a pizza cutter into strips. The dough strips were then placed over an inverted glass mixing bowl forming "loops" to create the tail. The rest of the turkey was just formed out of the dough and then baked to harden. Once hardened, you placed a block of foam behind the tail loops into which you inserted real feathers or dried flowers, etc.

I would be overjoyed if anyone has the instructions for this project. I have the salt dough recipe, just need the instructions.

I have several recipes for salt dough that I use with pre-schoolers. Most of them can be found at They have MANY craft ideas and recipes for that kind of thing. Hope you can find it there. If not, you may be able to if you do a search for "salt dough".
