Step 1: Create the Turkey's Head --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Fold a strip of the yellow construction paper in half lengthwise. * Next, cut a symmetrical triangle over the fold to make the turkey's beak. * Apply hot glue along the folded edge of the beak and attach it to the back of the wooden spoon, which represents the turkey's face. * Paste the googly eyes above the beak. * Set the spoon aside so that it can dry completely. Step 2: Make the Tail Feathers --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Stack all three papers on top of each other. * Cut out long feather shapes along the length of the papers. * Repeat this step three times across the stack. * Once you have finished cutting them out, attach each feather to its own wooden skewer. These pieces are the tail feathers for the bird figure. Step 3: Assemble the Basket --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Place the foam block in the basket near the back. * Stick the feathers into it. * Arrange them in a fan shape. * Position the spoon at the front of the basket. * Fill your turkey basket with bread.
