Turkey Door Hanger


9 sheets of 12x12 scrapbook paper, in colors for the tail feathers
1 sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper tan or light brown for the body.
Scraps of red, brown, white and yellow paper
Ribbon, 24 inches
Hot Glue gun, glue sticks and paper glue
Oval Google Eyes
Print off the pattern. Pattern will be posted at mom-stuff.com. Cut out the pieces and glue the turkey together using paper glue. Glue on the eyes with the hot glue. Set aside while you make the feathers.
Take one of the 12x12 sheets and roll it into a cone shape using one corner as the point. After you have the cone shape, staple the end to hold the shape. Repeat for the rest of the feathers. Pick your color pattern for the feathers. Starting with the center one,  glue it to the back of the turkey (using your hot glue). Next glue the next feathers on each side of the center one. Glue to turkey but also along the length of the feathers. Continue with the nest two feathers lower the points to match the shape of the body. Make sure each feather is right next to the previous one.
Tie the ends together and glue across the back of the center feather at 4 inches from the tip with the knot in the middle. Glue the ribbon along both sides of the center feather up the back until you are at least 2/3 up the feather to support the door hanger. Pattern is posted at www.mom-stuff.com
