I am often amazed at the opportunities that come our way as bloggers. Today I have some of the sweetest Turkey Napkin Rings to share with you as part of JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores #TurkeyTablescapes campaign. These little guys are not only adorable, but they are such a great Thanksgiving craft for you to work on with the kids!
I know I’ve said it before, but I am just a little addicted to fabric of all types. Needless to say,I had such a therapeutic morning when I was at JoAnn selecting the perfect fabrics for my little turkeys. Here are the instructions on how you can make a set for yourself…
Supplies Needed for a set of four:
- Fabric of choice
- 3 Phoomph 9×12 Stiff Sheets
- Regular Sized Wooden Clothes Pins
- Brown and Red Fine Glitter
- Tiny Google Eyes
- Brown Paint
- Jute Twine
- Clear Tape
Step One. Paint the clothespins with the brown paint and glitter the top with fine brown glitter.
Step Two. Once your glitter is dry, you will glue on the google eyes. As a tip, try to use as little glue as possible to avoid glue everywhere. It will also speed up the process of making the turkeys if you don’t have to wait long for them to dry. Now is also a great time to draw a beard with glue and apply some red glitter.
Step Three. Now you will want to make a pattern for your feathers. I drew it out on a piece of cardstock and cut it out. You will then trace it onto one side of the Phoomph sheets. Each turkey will need 9 feathers. Once you have them traced, cut out around the feather like you see above.
Step Four. Take the paper backing off of one side of the feather and press the feather down on the wrong side of the fabric. Now cut around the traced outline. Repeat for your remaining feathers.
Step Five. Arrange all of your feathers in a fan formation and tape them together on the back.
Step Six. Tie a piece of jute string around the napkin and then clip the turkey into place.
Aren’t they just the cutest ever?!!! I added them to a plate and can’t wait to share my whole Thanksgiving Kid’s Table with you !
These little Turkey Napkin Rings would be a wonderful family craft project to do while watching a Thanksgiving special this holiday season!
