Mason Jar Turkey
Gobble Gobble! This Mason Jar Turkey will add a whimsical touch to your Thanksgiving decor. Fill with candy for a hostess gift or just set on the dinner table and enjoy the cuteness! This is also a cheap project and a great way to use up those extra canning lids.
Supplies: A pint sized Mason Jar, band and lid, four additional bands, spray paint (I used brown, teal blue, fuchsia and yellow from Design Master), a wood slice ornament, googly eyes, a small piece of felt for the beak, rik rak for the waddle and an orange chenille stem.
Step 1: Spray paint the jar and lid brown.
Step 2: Spray Paint the bands.
Step 3: If you don’t have the right color rik rak, you can just paint some white any color you want!
Step 4: Glue the eyes, beak and rik rak waddle onto the wood slice.
Step 5: Tie the Mason Jar bands together.
Step 6: Glue the bands “feathers” and wood slice on the jar.
Step 7: Make the “feet” using chenille stems and glue them on.
By the way, you may notice the non traditional “feather” colors… this little turkey is meant to coordinate with my Thanksgiving Printables:
