Step #2
:  I used the following FREE clipart of various leaf shapes I found online. Print them and cut them out. OR, purchase pre-cut felt leaves.

Step #3: Use your leaf template to create a variety of different-colored felt leaves. For my wreath, I cut out a total of 42 different shaped leaves. 

Step #4: Arrange your leaves on the wreath using either hot glue gun, fabric glue OR straight pins. The image below shows how to use straight pins.

Step #5: Turkey time! Feel free to use this handy Turkey Template to copy onto your felt. I cut two body shapes and arranged the feathers in between with hot glue. Give the little turkey a cute little face and feet. Place the turkey anywhere on the wreath you like best.

How do you prepare for all the turkeys that may come your way this holiday season?!

    This is the cutest thing! Such a clever idea. And kids could make it, too. I think it would be a great project for older kids to make on Thanksgiving Day.
