Step 1: Using a pencil and ruler draw the feather lines stemming from one point fanning outwards. Draw as many feathers as you like, the more lines, the more colorful your turkey will be.
Step 2: Paint the feathers using acrylic craft paint.
Step 5: Stack all 3 layers together and glue in place with wood glue. Lay flat to dry.
Step 6: Using a wire cutters trim off the long metal pin portion keeping only a small tip.
Step 7: Predrill a tiny hole into the wood doll head and insert straight pin with a dab of super glue.
Print out names onto cardstock and insert into wire holder. These wood turkey place card holders stand up on their own, if yours are woobly consider adding pipe cleaner ‘legs’ to support the sides and even a cute little beak would be fun.
