Gather huge pinecones from a yard. Get some cardboard out of the recycle bin, two types of leaves from outside: some that have pointy edges (oaks are great), and leaves that look like feathers, a sharpie, tape, and scissors.

Cut out a neck from the cardboard and tape it to the smaller end of the pinecone. Snip off leaf edge to become beak and stick on with tape. Assemble the rest, including putting on your eye with the sharpie, and then do a photo shoot with your fleet of turkeys at your parents’ house. Beats a football game as a form of entertainment!

You could use these for placecard settings or for table decorations. They were such a hit!!We laughed so hard we cried at the photoshoot.

I’m going to leave YOU to fill in this story line!
