Here's what you need to create Thanksgiving Votive Place Cards:

Here's how to create DIY Felt Turkey Votive for Thanksgiving Decor:


On a piece of plain paper draw a half circle for the Turkey tail, a large number 8 for the Turkey body, a small triangle for the Turkey beak and an upside-down letter “L” with a squiggle for Turkey waddle.  Cut out to create patterns. Trace and cut one Turkey tail and body from Walnut Brown felt, one Turkey beak from Golden Rod felt, and one Turkey waddle from Ruby felt.

Die-cut two sets of leaves from each color of felt. Attach leaves in a random pattern around Turkey tail with Tacky Glue, let dry.  Continue attaching leaves until you are pleased with the fullness and color saturation.
