Are these not adorable?!!
To make this craft you will need:
- Felt in a shade(s) of brown
- Rubber Bands
- Googly eyes and whatever scraps you want to finish him off, I used:
- Orange felt
- Orange pipe cleaners (cut in half, one half per leg)
- Red pipe cleaner (cut in thirds--1 per waddle)
- Craft Glue
- Tootsie Roll Pops
Put your sucker through the hole, and gather the felt at the top back (like you were giving the lollipop a top pony tail). Secure with a rubber band, and fan out the remaining felt.
Decorate your turkey. The original idea that I found (which you can see here) used foam scraps--but I had extra felt, so I cut out a beak from my orange, added googly eyes, and curled a red pipe cleaner for the waddle.
To make his legs, I cut an orange pipe cleaner in half, then I twisted it around the bottom of the turkey pop making sure to keep it in the middle. I then "curled" each side to resemble legs.
Mommy tips: do not do like I did and "eyeball" the circle. The light brown ones are from where I tried to get to circles from one piece of felt. The fluffier dark brown one was closer to the 8" (nope, I didn't measure, just made sure I did it bigger. :)
