Hey there Ribbon Retreat friends!
Tis the season for Turkeys! Today I am going to show you how to make this fun little turkey.

You will need:
3/8 inch brown satin ribbon – for body
1 orange marabou puff
orange and yellow tulle
a variety of sizes and prints of “turkey color” ribbons (red, orange, yellow, brown)
orange felt circles
hot glue gun

Lets start with the body by cutting 3- 2¼ inch pieces and 2- 1½ inch pieces of brown satin ribbon.

Fold and glue the 3 larger pieces in half and make the smaller two into circles.
Glue the 3 larger ones together and trim off the top corners. This is your turkey body!

Cut a beak and gobbler out of extra scraps of ribbon and add google eyes! Now you’ve got a turkey body!

For his feathers you will want to start by cutting your marabou puff in half and cut 3-4 inch pieces of tulle, fold it in half then in thirds and place a dab of glue at the bottom to keep them together. Cut a variety of lengths of your ribbon and heat seal the ends.
