Thanksgiving Turkey Place Setting


This adorable Turkey is an easy project for Thanksgiving. And what an elegant looking place setting. Kids can help gather leaves and then set the turkeys at each place set at your table.

Items needed: 

  • Mini pumpkins with stems
  • Small pinecones (or substitute grapes)
  • Leaves
  • Toothpicks


For this project, you can use skinny leaves or fatter leaves, just adjust the number used depending on the size. Insert 4 toothpicks into the side of the pumpkin, to act as feet, adjusting to make pumpkin steady. If necessary, make starter holes with an icepick, if the skin is very tough. Attach leaves to the bottom of the pumpkin with toothpicks to form the feathers. Push pinecone onto stem for the head.
