Thanksgiving Crafts: Turkey Napkin Rings

Turkey Napkin Rings

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Kids will be eager to help set the Thanksgiving table with these little napkin-holding gobblers.


  • Flat wooden craft spoons
  • Tempera or acrylic paints
  • Paper towel tube
  • Scissors
  • Orange pipe cleaners
  • Black marker
  • Tacky glue
  • Red felt


  1. Five craft spoons are required for each ring. Using tempera paint, color one of them yellow for the turkey's head, the others, a variety of colors (they'll be used for tail feathers).
  2. For the turkey's body, cut a 2-inch section from a cardboard paper towel tube and paint it brown.
  3. From orange pipe cleaners, shape a pair of short legs with three-toed turkey feet. Fit the legs through small holes in the cardboard tube, bending the tips inside the tube to secure them.
  4. Use a marker to draw eyes on the face and use tacky glue to attach a red felt wattle.
  5. Finally, glue the head to the front of the body and the tail feathers to the back.
