    Not only cute, but functional too! They would make a cute addition to any Thanksgiving table.

    These can also be used as napkin holders.

  3. Cindy says:

    How do you keep the turkey from falling over backward? Before I glued the feathers on, it flopped forward, now it falls backward and the feathers are on the table.

    1. Cindy says:

      My husband helped me figure it out. He had me glue the body a little higher up on the feathers, rather than at the bottom of the feathers.
