Lately, I've been weird and have been trying to save everything I can and reuse it for some sort of craft. So of course when we ran out of paper towels---I just had to reuse the cardboard cylinder!
What you'll need:
- empty paper towel roll/toilet paper roll
- different colored felt
- brown scrapbook paper
- hot glue gun
- mod podge
- little beady eyes
- orange or brown yarn
First, I mod podged the scrapbook paper to my paper towel roll and let it dry.In the meantime, I cut out feathers for my turkey with felt. I actually ended up cutting more than this, as you'll see in the next pictures.
I hot glued each feather to the back of the paper towel roll and glued on the eyes and a triangle piece of felt for a beak. And as you'll notice, I cut the paper towel roll down because it was way too long (hence the reason you can use a toilet paper roll too).
Here is what it looks like from the back. Not very neat at all.
Then I realized my turkey was very top heavy so I looked around for something to glue him onto. Luckily for Mr. Turkey, Petey had gotten into my make up earlier that day and had ruined my entire case of blush---but I'm glad I held onto the tin case because I found Mr. Turkey a new home! I just hot glued him onto the tin case.
Then I realized how dumb my turkey looked with a black metal case so I decided to hide his home with orange yarn. I just hot glued the yarn in a circle over and over and over again!
