Paper Turkey Pins Thanksgiving Craft Step 1

1. Start by tracing four small, round objects, such as a jar lid, a bottle of tacky glue, a dime, and a quarter, onto a flattened cereal box. Our circles range in size from 5/8 inch to 2 inches. Cut out the circles.

2. Snip tail feathers into the largest circle, as shown. Cut one of the medium-size circles in half for wings. Use a hole punch to create tiny circles for eyes. Cut a triangular beak from a yellow section of the box and cut a tiny half-circle from red for the snood.

3. Stack and adhere the pieces with tacky glue. Add a self-adhesive pin back when the glue is dry.
