3 Turkey Feathers Crafts Ideas
Making turkey feather headbands is a fun way to not only keep the grandkids busy, but it also sparks their creativity as well as keeps them super entertained and out of the way of adults. To create this fun decoration, all you need is construction paper, a pair of scissors, stapler, glue, and feathers.
First, take a long piece of paper that’s about an inch wide, fit it to the child’s head, and then simply cut them to size. The next step is to start gluing away. Let the kids pick out their turkey feathers and glue them onto the paper along with any other kind of jewelry or ornament they want. Finally, when the gluing is all done, the ends of the paper then stapled or glued together to create the band.
Feather Place Cards
Making feather place cards is not just for the kids. While the adults are busy in the kitchen cooking Thanksgiving dinner, the grandkids can help decorate the dinner table with feather place cards. What you need for this craft project is construction paper, a pair of scissors, glue feathers, and a pen.
First, you cut up the place cards in whatever shapes please you. Next, write out the name of the place holders on the respective cards. Last but not least, decorate away by simply gluing on the feathers around the place cards. Feathers are not the only things that can go on place cards, you can add anything from glitter to gems, and you really cannot go wrong.
