Thanksgiving Toilet Roll Ring Turkey Craft

Pin It

This Thanksgiving Day Toilet Roll turkey craft is really creative and will impress your friends.

Materials:

  • several toilet paper rolls.
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • acrylic paint in various fall colors
  • paintbrushes
  • construction paper
  • glue or glue gun
  • flat work surface

Directions:

  1. Flatten your toilet rolls and mark lines every 1/2 inch and cut out the rings. The craft pictured above took about 13 rings to complete.
  2. For the body, cut 2 rings apart, then put the ends together to make one big ring. The inner circle is just a normal ring.
  3. Use 7 flattened rings for the big tail feathers. Cut 3 rings completely in half and use the bent halves for the small tail feathers.
  4. Assemble all your pieces before you paint or glue them together to get an idea what the finished product will look like.
  5. Paint some of our rings red, yellow, or orange. Paint the big ring dark brown. Leave the other natural.
  6. Glue all your pieces together on a flat work surface and allow to dry.
  7. Make a little head and neck from construction paper. Don't forget a beak, waddle, and eyes. Glue to the inner ring.
  8. Cut some left over rings to make the feet and glue on. All done. Happy Thanksgiving!
