Thanksgiving Turkey Tulle Wreath
You'll have lots of gobbley-good fun using Nicole Crafts Tulle and other supplies to create this wreath. If you don't want to prop it on a piece of furniture, hang a ribbon from the wreath so that it can be displayed from your door or window!
- Time:1-1/2 hours
1Wrap ¼ of the wreath with yarn for the turkeys 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 doesnt become loose from wreath.
2Cut 2-1/2 feet lengths of the tulle, approximately 10 of each color.
3The tulle turkey feathers will cover the remaining ¾ of the wreath. Fold each piece of tulle in half and tie around with a Larks 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.
4Wrap 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.
5Cut a piece of Red felt that is approximately 6 inch x 1/2 inch to serve as the turkeys wattle. Glue it to the beak so that it hangs down on either side.
6Cut two, 1 inch circles from Black felt and glue to durafoam balls for the turkeys eyes. Glue eyes to the wreath above the beak.
