Supplies you will need:


1. Start by painting the outside of your styrofoam cup with your brown paint and set it aside to dry completely.

2. Cut a 3-inch circle out of your brown cardstock paper. Also cut a triangle beak, heart shaped snood and accordion folded orange feet.

3. Once your cup has dried, use glue dots to glue the brown face onto the front of the cup. Add tacky glue onto the back of the cup and place several feathers on it in a layered look.

4. Finish your turkey by gluing on the beak, snood, googly eyes and feet.
