Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder
Our Canadian friends celebrate Thanksgiving in October so we’re bringing you a Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder to make your children’s Thanksgiving table festive.
TP Rolls (1/2 a roll per place setting)
Spray paint to paint TP Roll if desired.
4 Colors of felt
Thick Ric Rac
Hot Glue Gun
Cut a standard toilet paper roll in half.
Spray paint your two pieces if desired (I used my copper spray paint because I’m slightly obsessed with it, but you could totally leave the roll unpainted).
Using four colors of felt, cut individual feather shape out (I drew a stencil freehand on a piece of thin cardboard, and then traced that onto each piece of felt).
Hot glue the feathers onto the TP Roll.
Glue on the eyes.
Cut a triangle out of orange felt for beak (again … freehand), and glue onto roll.
I used a piece of thick Ric Rac cut into the shape of a snood and glued that on. Did you know that’s what that red dangly thing on Turkeys is called? I just googled … who knew (obviously, not me). Good trivia for Thanksgiving.
That’s it! Roll up a paper napkin, and stick it inside!
