Step 1: Create the Turkey Body Start by using your Cricut machine to cut out the turkey body shapes from colored cardstock. You can choose warm shades like brown, orange, or red for that perfect autumn touch.
Step 2: Assemble the Turkey With your turkey bodies ready, attach the wooden clothespin to the back using adhesive. This will serve as the stand for your place card holder.
Step 3: Add Googly Eyes and Beak Glue googly eyes onto the turkey’s face. Cut small triangles from orange craft foam or felt to create the beak and attach it just below the eyes.
Step 4: Make the Wattle and Feet Cut small, red, and elongated shapes for the turkey’s wattle, which hangs from its beak. Attach this to the beak. Then, cut small feet from orange craft foam or felt and glue them to the bottom of the clothespin.
Step 5: Write Guest Names Write the names of your guests on the turkey’s body using markers or pens. You can also get creative and add extra details like feathers or patterns to make each turkey unique.
Step 6: Place and Enjoy! Place your adorable Turkey Place Card Holders at each guest’s designated spot on the Thanksgiving table. These whimsical placeholders add a personal and festive touch to your gathering.
Crafting Turkey Place Card Holders is like adding a dash of charm and personality to your Thanksgiving feast. These placeholders aren’t just functional; they’re tokens of love and creativity that make the holiday season so special.
