PINE CONE TURKEY TUTORIAL!!!
|THANKSGIVING TABLE DECOR|
6 rainbow colors of chenille stems
a pine cone,
one brown pom pom,
an orange fat/skinny chenille stem (shaped like a snowman nose)
Wrap the chenille stems around the bottom circumference of the pine cone and twist once so you have the 2 end parts sticking out like a V. Then twist those 2 together at the ends to make one teardrop shaped loop, or like a bunny's ear. Do this again with a different color. Make all the loops on one side of the pine cone so they look like a turkey's feathers. I make sure the pine cone can sit level on a table too.
I start with red and do orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, the order of the rainbow. Then take a glue gun and add a brown pom pom for the head on the other side of all these cute feathers. Add 2 googly eyes purchased from Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Lastly, add a snipped off piece of the orange fat chenille stem. They end up looking like a carrot but are perfect for a turkey " beak".

|PINE CONE TURKEY CRAFT and PLACECARD TUTORIAL|
I purchased these kiddie melamine plates at Target for the upcoming Christmas holiday dinner. And they had placemats and bowls to match at Target. I love that store. I could easily make a simple snowman tablecloth if I want to matchy-match. That might be easier than placemats since my kiddie table is kinda tiny. I'll have to see what kind of fabric they have at Hobby Lobby tomorrow.
