So I’m all about easy crafts that are adorable as well. Turkeys seem to be perfect subject matter for these types of crafts. So when I found some leftover colored craft sticks and some feathers, I know W and I were making some turkeys because I’m a huge Thanksgiving fan! And I love how quick and easy this craft stick turkey was to make!
Craft Stick Turkey
Normally I would have used only red, orange, yellow, and brown feathers to go along with colors that remind me of fall and Thanksgiving. But I didn’t have all of those in my leftover feathers so I added the light blue feather as a bit of an accent. I have to admit that I love it! So this is a great craft for leftover supplies and being creative with colors makes it fun!
What you need:
- Large craft sticks (regular or colored)
- Paint (if desired)
- 3 feathers per craft stick
- 2 googly eyes per stick
- Orange construction paper scrap
- Red construction paper scrap
- Craft glue
What you do:
- If you have plain craft sticks rather than colored and want to paint them, paint desired color and allow to dry.
- Glue the feathers on one side of the craft stick and allow to dry.
- Glue googly eyes on other side of clothespin.
- Snip a small triangle of orange construction paper below eyes to make the turkey’s beak.
- Cut a small squiggle shape of red construction paper and glue on side of orange beak.
- Let dry and enjoy!
W loves to play with these along with our Clothespin Turkeys! These craft stick turkeys could find a home on the dinner table or they could be fun seasonal bookmarks. Or just a ton of fun to make and play with!
Such a cute and easy idea. My daughters are 6 and 9 and would LOVE to make these. Thanks for the idea!
Always love your crafts… because I can actually do them! This Craft Stick Turkey will be perfect to do with the girls later this month! Pinned so i can find it easy later.
This is cute – wish I had known about this when my kids were littles, but it has given me an idea for center pieces.
That is just adorable! I like that it’s not messy either. Thank you for sharing!

This is a super cute craft, I’ve done something similar to this at the daycare I use to work at. The kids also enjoyed making little pilgrim outfits and taping them to the front of other sticks.

What a cute idea! I am going to try this with my toddler, I think she would enjoy making one of these for her grandparents :)

I love this streamlined turkey. ;) I’ve seen several craft stick turkeys, but this is by far my favorite for its simplicity. I’ve included it in my craft stick project roundup here: http://productivewahm.com/26-craft-stick-projects-for-every-letter-of-the-alphabet/
