This fun Turkey Pinecone Craft lets your kids add some flair to your Thanksgiving table or mantelpiece.
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.

I’m just coming over from the MomDot community and wanted to let you know that I featured your turkey in my recent post… 6 Easy and Adorable Thanksgiving Turkey Crafts for Kids. This is a great idea! We’ve always got pine cones in our front yard so I’m always looking for fun pinecone crafts to do with my son. This one is going to be so much fun. I think my 14 year old might even want to make one. 🙂
