Thanksgiving Turkey Head Band


Small pieces of felt in brown, tan, yellow, black and orange
Small piece of coordinating ribbon
Paints in yellow, orange and black

1.The pattern is free-handed on cardstock. Since there wasn’t a pattern I did the best I could!

2. Use the cardstock pattern to cut your pieces out of felt.

3. Glue the orange feather piece onto the brown feather piece.

4. The tan body piece is glued to the center of the feathers.

5. Add the yellow feet on top of the tan feet.

6. Glue the brown body on top of the tan body, making sure to cover the edge of the yellow feet.

7. The black hat is glued to the top of the head. Allow all of that to dry.

8. Use black paint to paint the eyes and yellow for the beak. The orange paint is used to make a band across the hat. Then use the piece of ribbon to make a bow and hot glue it to the neck area of the turkey.

9. Cut your elastic to the length desired. You can use this chart for suggested sizes. Sew or glue the ends together. Then glue the turkey over the glued ends.

  2. What a cute idea, I wish I thought of something like this when my daughter was young. I bet lots of little girls will line up for you to make one for them. These would be cute on napkin rings for the Thanksgiving table too.

  8. What an adorable headband, Roseann! Just perfect to wear for the Fall and Thanksgiving!

  9. Super cute! I’m picturing my daughter wearing something like this when she was little. She would have loved it!

  10. So cute. Have pinned and then emailed your link to my daughters who make headbands and clips for their daughters. I am thinking this Tom turk could be glued to a hair clip, too. Truly adorable. Thank you for sharing.

  11. I am a total Lover of headbands, fascinators and bobby pins, so this is a project I can’t love. I am currently growing my hair a bit so I get to wear headbands again. This is a fun little project that will inspire me to DIY one, too, for sure.

  13. Your turkey came out so good! What a cute little idea, and can be used to embellish about a million things outside of a headband.
