Pom Pom Thanksgiving Craft Turkey Decorations

My recent issue of All You magazine had directions for cute Thanksgiving turkeys. I thought they would make adorable favors and serve as a Thanksgiving craft as well. So, I made one (you can too, with these templates). They’re pretty self-explanatory just by looking – you need pop poms (I used the 2″ size), felt, pipe cleaners, and glue.

Mine came out a bit different, notably because I defy the magazine photographer to tell me how to get these guys to stand up:

They’re very cute, but a caveat:  they are pretty time-consuming to make. I was going to make one for each person at Thanksgiving, but I think I’m changing that to one per family.
