Cardboard Tube Turkey
– Empty Toilet paper or paper towel tubes
– Acrylic paint
– Card stock
– Glue gun
-I took 2 pieces and cut them along ONE of the creases to form one long strip. These will be used to make the larger circle for the body.
-Then take 3 more pieces and cut them directly in half for the smaller feathers.
I then took brown card stock and drew out a head and neck. Cut it out and added eyes with a black marker and a white gel pen. I then took orange paper for his beak and red for his gobble. Cut and glue onto head.
I then just glued the neck onto the inner circle of the body.
