Step 1: Using a pencil and ruler draw the feather lines stemming from one point fanning outwards. Draw as many feathers as you like, the more lines, the more colorful your turkey will be.
Step 2: Paint the feathers using acrylic craft paint.
Step 3: Predrill a tiny hole into one edge of the turkey body piece (1 1/2″ wood circle).
Step 6: Using a wire cutters trim off the long metal pin portion keeping only a small tip.
Print out names onto cardstock and insert into wire holder. These wood turkey place card holders stand up on their own, if yours are woobly consider adding pipe cleaner ‘legs’ to support the sides and even a cute little beak would be fun.vI hope you enjoyed this easy wood craft, be sure to follow me on social media for more project ideas and sneak peeks:
