Thanksgiving Turkeys

I just made these adorable pine-cone turkeys for Thanksgiving place settings with my son. They double as a favor for grandparents to make the size of his hands this year.

Start by tracing his hand on three different colors of paper. Make sure you have one hand print in each color for each place setting you need (I needed 6 place settings so I  did six hand prints in each color).


Once you have all the prints traced cut them out.



Then draw oval shaped faces on another color paper and cut them out.


Once everything is cut out start assembling the turkeys. Draw or glue eyes and a small “beak” on the faces and hot glue it to the narrow end of the pinecone. Take one hand print in each color and fan them to create a “tail”. Hot glue this to the wide end of the pine cone.


An adorable family of pinecone turkeys! Finish them off by writing your guests names on the tails.

Happy Thanksgiving.
