Starting at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock, begin gluing down the large Walnut Brown felt feathers first.
Place large Ruby felt feathers in the same fashion, but shifting slightly so the center of the Ruby feather matches up with the joint of the Walnut Brown feathers. Glue in place.
Repeat process for small Gold felt feathers and small Orange felt feathers.
Measure and cut two 12” by ¾” strips of Copper Canyon felt and then glue to edge of 6” foam disc. Trace and cut a 6” circle Copper Canyon felt, glue to the top of 6” foam disc, let dry.
Trace and cut out Turkey Body from Walnut Brown Felt, Beak and buckle from Gold Felt, Waddle from Ruby Felt, Hat from Black Felt and Hat Trim from White Felt. Glue all pieces together, using the photo as your guide. Add one wiggle eye above the beak.
Glue Turkey to the center of 6” foam disc, then glue to the center of 12” foam disc. Attach self-adhesive pearls randomly to turkey feathers.
Color canvas letters with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, then attach to felt-covered banner.
Place the wooden banner on Copper Canyon Felt, trace and cut out, then glue to surface. Embellish with pearls. Find the center of 24” length of braided jute, secure to work surface with tape. Glue Banner 2” down from the center, then glue Turkey 2” down from the banner.
