Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1-1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Wrap ¼ of the wreath with yarn for the turkey’s “body”. Start by gluing end of yarn to the wreath to anchor it and continue to wrap yarn around ¼ of wreath in one direction and back again so there are two layers of yarn. Glue yarn end down. Tip: leave the straw wreath in its wrapping so straw doesn’t become loose from wreath.
  • 2
    Cut 2-1/2 feet lengths of the tulle, approximately 10 of each color.
  • 3
    The tulle turkey feathers will cover the remaining ¾ of the wreath. Fold each piece of tulle in half and tie around with a Lark’s Knot. To do this, fold tulle in half lengthwise; pull the ends through the loop (created by folding the tulle) and tighten. The loop should be at the top (outside edge) so the feathers stand up. Rotate between Burgundy, Orange and Red tulle. Use the Yellow glitter tulle as an accent color. Use pins to secure loop to wreath.
  • 4
    Wrap the cone in Yellow to create the turkey's beak. Cut off any excess and then glue beak to the center of the yarn body portion of wreath.
  • 5
    Cut a piece of Red felt that is approximately 6 inch x 1/2 inch to serve as the turkey’s wattle. Glue it to the beak so that it hangs down on either side.
  • 6
    Cut two, 1 inch circles from Black felt and glue to durafoam balls for the turkey’s eyes. Glue eyes to the wreath above the beak.
