Gobble, gobble, it’s almost Thanksgiving. We usually don’t do too many Turkey crafts here at home so I’m switching things up and sharing this cute paper plate craft. While you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner set up these paper plate craft supplies and let kids make turkeys to pass the time. This will also keep them away from the dessert table while you welcome guests for dinner. Paper plate crafts are some of my favorite to create and share with my readers because they’re just so easy! Finding the supplies couldn’t be more simple for this paper plate craft, you can order online with the included links.
- Paper plate-You can use a regular sized plate or small plate. Smaller plates don’t use as many pom-poms and take less time. This makes them a great option if several kids are crafting.
- Autumn pom-pom mix
- Green, red, orange and yellow paper
Turkey Paper Plate Craft
We’re making our paper plate turkey as an addition to our fall wreath made of pom-poms that I shared with you last week. Start by cutting the center out of your paper plate and covering the edges with pom-poms. See the full tutorial here.
Next stack your paper together and cut what look like long leaves. You only need one or two for the Turkey’s tail feathers. The stack of paper should give you four feathers per cut out.
Once the pom-poms on the paper plate have dried flip the plate over and attach the paper feathers to the top part of the plate. If you’d like the turkey to have a face flip the plate back over and add a triangle of orange paper to the lower half of the wreath for a beak.
Let the glue dry and hang up your turkey as a Thanksgiving decoration!
