How To Craft a Turkey Gourd Thanksgiving Centerpiece
You Will Need
  • Artificial tree branches
  • Scissors
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Gourd
  • Magic marker
  • Artificial berries
  • Candles
step 1Snip leaves off the branches Snip the artificial leaves off of the branches and glue them along the back of the bottom and the neck of the gourd to make feathers for your turkey.
tip Use a short handled dipper gourd that has a long, skinny neck and a fat, round bulb.
step 2Construct the wattle Cut a leaf in the shape of a wattle to hang from the turkey’s neck and glue it to the underside of the neck of the gourd.
step 3Add face Add a face by drawing eyes and a mouth, or by cutting out eyes and a mouth from your leaves and gluing them to the gourd.
step 4Dress up the centerpiece Dress up your centerpiece by spreading leaves and artificial berries near the base of the turkey, or by adding your own personal touch with candles or other decorative pieces.
step 5Show off your centerpiece Invite some friends and family over and be sure to point out your hand-crafted centerpiece.
