Make Halloween Pumpkins Into Thanksgiving Turkeys

Re-use your Halloween pumpkins for Thanksgiving by turning them into turkeys for just a few dollars. You'll need dowel rods, glue and felt. Cut felt into feather shapes, two for each dowel. Glue like a sandwich, with the felt as the bread and the end of the dowel as the filling. Do as many feathers as you want, but five or six is sufficient. Use different colors. You can either make the turkey head from felt and markers, or paint a face on the front of the pumpkin. Then poke the rods into the pumpkin, which is the turkey's body.

Sounds like it would be real cute! I'd love to see a pic!

I'd suggest using long bamboo skewers instead of the more expensive dowel rods. Being sharpened on one end makes insertion easier, too.
