What You Need
- Brown Felt - 1 sheet should make 4 napkin rings/hair clips or get the by the yard kind
- Ribbon of different colors and sizes - I used 7 pieces that were about 4 inches long each
- Small piece of red rick rack
- Flip Clip
- Googly Eyes
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Cut your napkin ring pieces. One piece 5 x 2 inches and another piece 1 x 2 inches.
- Draw a line of glue along both short ends of the the small piece and stick to the middle of the long piece.
- Then draw a line of glue along one of the short ends of the long piece and attach it to the other end to form a ring. make sure that your small piece is on the outside of the ring this is how you will attach the turkey clip.
- Cut out a turkey body piece and a second round piece slightly smaller than the bottom circle of the turkey.
- Fold your ribbons in half with the right sides out and glue the ends to form the feathers.
- Draw a half circle of glue on the back (round) piece of felt and attach the "feathers" add more glue as needed. I had to do a couple layers.
- Then add glue to the bottom round part of the front felt piece and place over the ribbons.
- Run your piece of rick rack over a flame to seal the edges and then glue on the eyes and rick rack. What's that gobbly thing called again?
- Finally add some glue to the top of the the hair clip and attach to the back of the turkey.
Find a cute head and clip it on for a fun playful 'do. Or if you are making it for the men-folk or mini men-folk you can use a pinback instead of a flip clip and it can be a cute turkey pin.
To use it as a napkin ring simply slide the clip through the opening formed by the little piece of felt on the napkin ring and you're good to go. Not only do you have a festive decoration but your guest have something to take home.
