How To Make Cute Lollipop Pumpkin Turkeys
1 – I haven’t given sizes for the pieces of felt to cut to make your lollipop pumpkin turkeys because you’ll need to cut the sizes appropriate for your particular pumpkin.
2 – Making Lollipop Pumpkin Turkeys is super simple! Start off by cutting out a triangle of orange or yellow felt for the turkey’s beak and a red wiggly shape for the turkeys snood or wattle. Glue the eyes, beaks, and snood on to your pumpkin.
3 – To make the turkey’s colourful feather display use the screwdriver to make a few holes on the top back of the pumpkin. (Grown-ups only for that bit.)
4 – Bring your pumpkin turkey to life with a gorgeous display of lollipop tail feathers pushed into the holes!
We think this is such a cute, fun and easy Thanksgiving centrepiece! Of course the whole family will love grabbing a lollipop to suck after thanksgiving dinner too so make sure you load them up with your favourite flavours. Yum.
