Shake Your Tail Feather

In the spirit of finding things to do with spare cork (you'll recall the cork checkers board game) I introduce you to the cork turkey, perfect for any holiday table. 

To make this bird, you'll need the following:

(Since I have two kids to craft with, the photo shows two of everything.)


googly eyes

colored construction paper for feathers and head

papers clips


glue or glue stick

To make:

Cut out a turkey face 

apply eyes

apply beak

glue to cork

Make tail feather fan by cutting out feathers and gluing. 

Glue to back of cork. 

It's best to let the whole thing dry before proceeding with the next step. 

Unravel paper clip so you have one straight side to poke through the cork. Adjust legs so the turkey sits properly. 

Place on Thanksgiving table to enjoy!!

You could even make a slip at the top and insert place cards into the cork!

  1. I'm going to try this with my almost 4 year old, he's into turkeys (except when I try to make him eat it later this week I'm sure!). Thanks for posting!
