Turkey Wreath

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a fun turkey wreath to do by yourself or with a group.

If you are doing it with a group, each person can write something they are thankful for on one of the strips of construction paper before making it into a loop.


  • Ring of cardboard (empty cereal boxes work wonderfully)
  • construction paper (red, orange and yellow)
  • scissors,
  • glue

  • Trace a small plate and a large plate onto a piece of old cardboard.
  • Empty cereal boxes or frozen dinner boxes work well
  • It doesn't matter if you go over the folds of the cardboard

  • Cut a small strip of cardboard and glue it onto the back of the ring over any folds in the cardboard.
  • This will reinforce the ring.
  • Cut strips of construction paper (about 1 1/2 inches by 4 inches)
  • Glue the strips into rolls (like making a paper chain)

  • Glue the rolls of construction paper onto the wreath.  We made a red, orange and yellow pattern, but you can do it however you wish.
  • Trace a child's footprint onto a piece of white paper.
  • Color this brown (it will be the turkey's head)
  • Cut out a teardrop shape and color orange (it will be the turkey's beak)
  • Cut out two ovals and put eyeballs in them
  • Cut out a wobbler from red paper

  • Fold a piece of orange construction paper in half and cut out a foot shape (this will make two identical feet.
  • OR:  Use the template pieces below for the face and feet.
  • Glue the feet to the back of the wreath.
  • Glue the footprint body to the front of the wreath
  • Glue the face to the body and hang up your wreath.
