Here's what you need to make Thanksgiving Turkeys from Clothespins:

Here's how to create a Turkey from Clothespins:

STEP ONE

To begin the Clothespin Turkey Dollar Tree Craft, gather all supplies. I love to keep certain supplies like wooden sticks in my stash all year long because they are versatile and easy to create with. Spread out these main supplies on your work surface and let the kids' imaginations run WILD!

STEP TWO

Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. Line up nine full clothespins on your work surface, to create a fan shape. Attach the pairs of wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template.

STEP THREE

Paint all sides of each clothespin as follows with acrylic craft paint: one Avocado, two Butterscotch, two Canyon Orange, two Heritage Brick, and two Honey Brown. Set aside to dry. Once dry, attach the painted clothespins together with a glue gun and glue sticks.  I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.

STEP FOUR

Attach two mini wood slices together as the turkey body and head, using a glue gun and glue sticks. Then glue the body to the clothespin turkey feathers. Using scissors, cut out a triangle beak from Yellow Kunin Classic Felt and a wiggly waddle shape from Red Kunin Classic Felt. Carefully attach two wiggle eyes, beak, and waddle to the head of the turkey with a glue gun and glue sticks.

STEP FIVE

To finish the Dollar Tree Craft Clothespin Turkey, create a flag. Measure a strip of off-white cardstock ½” wide by 6” long, and cut it out with scissors. Write a message like “Give Thanks” about one inch from the right side of the paper strip with a MONO Twin Permanent Marker. Fold the paper strip in half around a wooden toothpick, lining up the edges. Secure the flag with a bit of glue and cut out a triangle shape from the end to create the flag shape. Attach to either the right or the left side of the turkey.  The MONO Twin is my favorite permanent marker because it has a larger bullet tip and a small extra fine tip.
