We do love making fun little turkey crafts, even more so if the materials we use are on the frugal side – like paper, we do love crafting with paper.
This little one will be done in no time, you can use regular print paper or construction paper to make it. We have ours standing proudly, on it’s own, on the shelf but you could also make a few and with some thread through their heads make a wonderful DIY fall garland.
Need to take it to a whole new level?
Why not make a giant one out of cardstock or other heavier paper (poster paper) and have a giant turkey craft sit in your classroom or in your home. We’re pretty sure the kids will love taking part in such a project.
Sounds fun right? OK let’s get crafting!
What you need:
- brown paper (regular paper or construction paper)
- red paper
- orange paper
- yellow paper
- wiggle eye stickers or googly eyes
- pencil or crayon
Optional: zig-zag pattern scissors

Cut a wide strip out of brown paper.
If you are working with construction paper, the glue will take a while longer to set – we usually use clothespins to hold the paper in place while the glue dries.
You just made the turkey body.
Apply glue on the base.
Also stick two eyes on the head.
Draw a tail around the body.
Draw feathery tail around the first one.
Hold together for a while for the glue to set.
All done! Such a wonderful little turkey don’t you think!
