This turkey pinecone craft is a fun way to use some of the elements of nature to create a Thanksgiving decoration perfect for the dinner table or fireplace mantel.
While you can use any colors of feathers or pipe cleaners, if you visit a craft store such as Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics, you should be able to find some very “realistic” turkey colors! If you can’t find pinecones in nature, you can always order them on Amazon or buy at the craft store also.
