  • some felt or even stiff colored paper

Steps:

  1. Cut felt into the turkey shapes shown in my photo and glue pieces on with craft glue
  2. felt body and hat
     
  3. Include a simple bow shape and add the little sequins in the center of the eyes.
  4. front view of the turkey body
     
  5. Glue Tom onto a craft stick or firm cardboard on the back for strength and to stand alone upright

  7. Either make a bow with some ribbon (as pictured here) or use an existing bow you may have and tie it to the stem on the back of Tom to make a pretty but simple tail display.

  9. I chose to attach the 'Tom' front to the pumpkin with one thumbtack in the middle of the bow. Easy!
  10. Finished turkey
     
  11. I sat him in a bed of shreddings that I had from a gift basket.
  12. I think he looks pretty cute, don't you agree?

Don't store your Halloween pumpkins away just yet! You can use them as decorations for Thanksgiving.

Transform your pumpkin into a turkey with some construction paper, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes.
