Pinecone Turkey Centerpiece


TURKEY

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and we wanted to try out some of the cutest Pintrest crafts for the fall season. This Pintrest Reality is for this cute Pine Cone Turkey Centerpiece. The original craft is by Marla Meridith. Below you will find the link to her original blog for this craft. We will show the original instructions for the craft and give our opinion on how easy and realistic the craft was. We will give you some pointers and tell what worked and didn’t work.

What they say you need:
Martha Stewart Circle Edge Punch
Large Pine Cone
Card Stock in at least 3 Colors
White Paper for the Eyes
Black Marker
Glue Gun
Piece of Red Ribbon

What they say to do:

Cut 3 circles with your Martha Stewart circle edge punch
Cut 2 wedges for the eyes and draw black circles with a marker
Cut a small piece of ribbon for the wattle
Cut 2 wedges for the feet
Cut a triangle for the beak
Cut a piece of card stock for the base of your turkey

Once all of your pieces are cut you can start gluing them to your pinecone.

We love this craft!! It is such a cute idea for your littles table setting. It’s also a fast and simple craft that is perfect for all ages.

When buying the supplies we couldn’t find the circle edge punch. So we decided to improvise. Our version is a little different than the original but just as cute!

MATERIALS
What we used for this craft:
3 pieces of designed card stock
1 piece of yellow card stock
Scalloped edge scissors
One large pinecone
A small bowl for tracing
Two googly eyes

IMG_3801What we did:

First we traced out three circles on our designed card stock, one a little smaller than the other.
Then we cut out two ovals out of our yellow card stock for the eyes and glued the google eyes to the yellow ovals.
Next we cut out yellow triangles for the beak and feet.
Lastly we glued it all together using glue dots.
