Flower Turkey

Stock up on fall flowers now so you can create a simple and adorable flower turkey! 


These are my little flower turkeys and I’m going to show you how to whip up a rafter of your own.  (That’s the right word for a group of turkeys, I checked on Google.)
Here’s your supply list:
Glue gun
Felt (I used brown and tan)

Flowers–fall colors are nearly free at craft stores now because Christmas has moved in!
Optional:  Napkin rings and burlap, googly eyes, hair clip


First you’ll need to separate your flowers.  The little plastic stem should pop right off and you can take each layer of petals off.  

Stack different colors of petals in a way you like them, with each layer being a little smaller than the one under it.

Glue layers together with hot glue.

Cut in half.

Cut a turkey shape out of brown felt and glue it to the flowers.  Add a tiny tan triangle for a beak.   I liked how they looked at this point–though if you wanted you could also add little googly eyes and a red wattle (thanks again Google!) they’d be really cute too.

To make the napkin rings I grabbed these little cardboard rings that I’ve had in a box for a couple of years (I knew I’d use them some day!)  

I cut a strip of burlap to fit around it and secured it with the hot glue.  

Next I put a ring of glue around the inside and tucked each end down in.  Your fingers will thank you if you’ve got a dual temp gun set at warm instead of hot 🙂

I also decided that these would be cute in my girls’ hair so I attached a couple of them to clips.

If you make some of your own, I’d love to see them!

I bought a bag of flower heads at a dollar store. It has a lot of fall colors in it. They save the flowers that fall off the bunches of flowers and sell them for 1$. I had no idea what I was going to do with them but now here is one idea. Thank you!!!
