My Life of Travels and Adventures: An Oh So Adorable Turkey Wreath

An Oh So Adorable Turkey Wreath

15 November 2013

It should come as no surprise that I like having our door decorated with the seasons and holidays.  So when I took down our Halloween Bat Wreath and had not immediate replacement, I had a mini panic attack.

Thankfully, this past week, a couple turkey wreaths on Pinterest caught my eye and after a trip to the craft store... I was set to get busy.

Supplies:

  • Styrofoam Wreath
  • Brown, Yellow, Black and Red Paint
  • 6 Pieces of felt
  • Hot Glue
  • Craft Sticks
Instructions:

1. First I painted the styrofoam wreath brown.  It took 2 coats to get all over coverage. 
2. Fold a piece of felt in half long ways (hot dog style... Do they still teach it that way?) and cut 2 feathers out of each piece.  
3. Repeat on 4 more pieces of felt for a total of 10 feathers.  Although I only used 9 feathers. 
4. The remaining brown piece of felt I folded into thirds the long way (hot dog style) and hot glue.  
5. Hot glue the feathers together.
6. Hot glue craft stick onto the ends of each feather, then create a skeleton with more craft sticks and hot glue so everything is attached. 
7. Hot Glue the wreath to the front of the feathers. 
8. Hot glue the remaining piece of felt around the wreath. 
9.  Using scraps of felt cut out your turkey face.  Paint each piece and attach with hot glue. 
10.  Hang and Enjoy! I used a pipe cleaner twisted around the craft stick skeleton to hang the turkey on the door.
