Stunning Rustic Turkey Centerpiece
Looking for a fun and easy centerpiece for your Thanksgiving tablescape? Then grab a twig pumpkin and make this Stunning Rustic Turkey Centerpiece! For more fun fall projects see my Thanksgiving page.
This year I wanted my Thanksgiving Dinner to have a natural rustic feel to it, so made this cute sticks and twigs turkey centerpiece for my table, it is one of my projects for JoAnn Fabrics Celebrate the Season Campaign.
I took a twig turkey, natural cut craft sticks, a pinecone, and some hot glue to make this fun beauty.
Stunning Rustic Turkey Centerpiece
Found in most JoAnn Fabrics Craft Stores
- 1 Autumn Inspirations Twig Pumpkin
- 1 Darice Assorted Twig Bundle
- 1 Small narrow pine cone
- Naturally dried wheat stems
- Martha Stewart Crafts Iridescent Glitter, Lemon Drop
- Bronze Metallic Spray Paint
- Fiskars Mixed Media Thick & Heavy scissors
- Hot glue and gun
Take 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.
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!
You can get all the items listed above to make your Rustic Turkey for your Thanksgiving table at your local JoAnn Fabrics store or online~
