What a Turkey Day Night

DIY Cardboard Turkey
- White Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
- Utility Knife
- Turkey Template
Step 1 Prepping the Poultry
Using the turkey body template, trace onto a piece of cardboard. I recommend using a piece that already has a fold in it (the fold will be the top of the turkey - sandwich board style).
Then flip your template (mirror original drawing with the two tops touching). Trace a second body piece right up against your first drawing. Then cut as one, creating an angel wings pattern. Fold together.
Step 2 Basting the Bird
Step 3 Trussing the Turkey
To attach, you can simply glue the drumsticks and wings in place... or for a little extra flavor, use Velcro strips.
Step 5 Ding!
Gather the whole family cause it's Turkey Time!
