Styrofoam Turkey Craft

For a couple of years I have had a styrofoam ball sitting around my craft closet.  FINALLY, it was put to good use by making a Turkey!

Not only did I already have the styrofoam ball but had all the other materials on hand too....score!!

Here's what you'll need to make your very own Turkey:

  • Styrofoam ball
  • Brown paint
  • Paint brush
  • Feathers
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Craft foam
We started off by painting the styrofoam:

You'll need to allow for some dry time.  It took our ball a few hours to dry and even after that it was still damp to the touch.  

Once dry stick in the feathers.  This was my daughter's favorite part!

I didn't get pics of the last part but we simply cut out some craft foam for the eyes, nose and mouth.  You could also use googly eyes in place of the craft foam.  For the turkey legs we used pipe cleaners and my daughter being the girly girl that she is picked purple, of course!

Our Turkey is so cute and plump and fits nicely on the window sill!  

Gobble, gobble.......
