A Turkey Pumpkin Centerpiece

featured, to craft, to make — By on November 15, 2011 at 10:54 am

Have an extra pumpkin or 2 sitting around? My Daughters class took a trip to the farm last week and she was able to bring home a pumpkin that was leftover in their pumpkin patch. The day after her field trip she brought home this adorable little turkey that we will use as a centerpiece on Thanksgiving.

It’s super easy and you probably have everything you need to make it on hand.

What you’ll need:

Pumpkin
Construction Paper (assorted colors Brown, Orange, Yellow, Red)
Googly eyes
Scissors
Glue Stick
Hot Glue/Gun

What You’ll do:

Trace out the shape of feathers in assorted colors and have your child cut them out
Cut out a Brown Circle for his head
Cut out an Orange Triangle for his nose
Cut out (you’ll have to free hand it) a wattle

Glue the pieces in place on the Brown Circle and add your eyes (you could draw these on construction paper if you don’t have googly eyes on hand.)

Glue your feathers together and then hot glue onto your pumpkin – That’s it… A perfect turkey pumpkin centerpiece for your Thanksgiving festivities..
