Rustic Turkey Centerpiece 

Supplies :

Found in most JoAnn Fabrics Craft Stores


Pumpkin Twig TurkeyTake the twig pumpkin and flatten one side by pressing down on it onto a flat surface. This will be the bottom of your turkey.


Take apart the bundle of twigs and lay them fanned out evenly on a flat surface. Take a piece of  the corrugated scrapbook paper and trim the corners to make a rounded edge.

Add a generous amount of hot glue to the flat side of the corrugated paper. Press it to the fanned out twigs. Let the glue dry a few minutes then turn it over and this is your guide for the twigs and base for the tail of your turkey.


Add the rest of your twigs, hot gluing them to the corrugated paper as you go. 


Next trim and add your wheat stems to fill in the gaps.

Add glue to the base of the twig tail and press to the bottom of your pumpkin. Trim the tail to make the twigs even with heavy-duty scissors. 


Glue the pine cone to the pumpkin stem to make the turkey head. Lightly spray paint with bronze spray paint to cover hot glue drips. Then as the paint is drying, sprinkle with the fine glitter to make your turkey sparkle!
