  • Brown Paint

  • Craftbond Quick Dry Glue

  • Medium Tip Painters Pen, Orange

  • Large Googly eyes

  • Ribbon's In Fall Colors ( brown, red, orange, yellow)

  • Feathers, Felt, and/or Construction Paper in Fall Colors (can mix and match)

  • Run a thick line of glue inside the rim at the backside of the can, and attach the turkey’s tail “feathers”(made from actual feathers, construction paper, felt, etc.). Note: if the interior rim of your can has sharp edges, you can cover it with a layer or two of masking tape to protect your fingers!

  • Cut 10-15 pieces of ribbon approximately 18" in length

  • Run another thick line of Craftbond glue around the entire inside rim at the bottom of the can, and use the glue to attach the ribbon streamers. Allow it to dry completely.

  • Use the glue to attach a red waddle ( made of felt or paper) and a ribbon for hanging


 

Beaded Pipe Cleaner Indian Corn


Materials:

  • Four or more tan pipe cleaners

  • Pony beads in the colors yellow, orange, white, and maroon

How to:

  • Firstly, take two of your pipe cleaners and make an “X”. Twist them around each other in the middle.

  • Take two more pipe cleaners and wrap them around the middle the same way.

  • Then begin adding the beads onto the pipe cleaners in any pattern you'd like until they are filled

  • Leave a couple of inches at the end of each pipe cleaner

  • Bring all of the ends together, take one of the pipe ends and wrap it around the others

  • Wrap another piece of pipe cleaner around it if it's not secure enough and then you are all done.


 

Candy Cornucopia


Materials:

  • Paper cones ( made from paper pre-formed)

  • Brown crepe paper streamers

  • fringe scissors

  • glue stick

  • candy ( candy corn, candy pumpkins, fruit gems, marzipan fruits)


How to:

  • Start by using the fringe scissors to create a fringed length of crepe paper – you’ll need about 7′ for each cornucopia.

  • Starting at the base of the cone, use the glue stick to attach the fringed tissue to the cone, overlapping each layer slightly.

  • When your entire cone is covered in crepe paper, allow the glue to dry completely before rolling the tip of the cone up. Tip: Use a marker to help you roll the tip to create a tighter and more nicely shaped roll! Simply roll the tip of the cone around the marker, hold, and release.

  • Fill the paper cornucopia with all of your favorite harvest candies and then you're finished.
