Bottle Cap Turkey Pin and Necklace

Gobble, gobble, gobble…wahooooo! November 1st marks my absolute favorite time of year. I love, love, love the months November and December and the holidays they bring with them. First on the list…Veterans Day! THANK YOU Veterans….can’t thank you enough! Then comes the yummiest holiday of the year…Thanksgiving, which is what we are celebrating today with an adorable and feathery festive turkey pin and matching necklace. Adrienne from Free Time Frolics is visiting today with her version of two fabulous holiday accessories, and it is cute, cute, cute! Enjoy!

Hello Ribbon Retreaters! Let’s make something adorable today! My little Miss is in Elementary School. She loves novelty jewelry and trinkets. So I thought this year I would make her a cute necklace for school. So I came up with this simple tutorial to make a turkey necklace or pin two ways.

Making these could not be easier. You will need a few supplies: Silk Tie Dyed Gerber Daisy, Burlap Bottle Cap, Googly Eyes, Felt, Brooch Pin. (With each daisy you can make 3 of these turkeys.)

Get All Of Your Supplies
Take your bottle cap, googly eyes and a scrap of felt. Glue the eyes and felt beak to the inside of the bottle cap.

Hand sew the pin to one side of the felt circle.

Take one flower layer and fold in half. Take one of the smaller layers and place it on the front.

Glue the bottle cap to the center of the flower.

Flip to the back side and glue the pin to the flower.

Let dry and wear.

Next, let’s make the matching necklace.

Start with a Burlap Bottle Cap, Googly Eyes, 5 different colored ribbons 1/4 inch wide, Necklace Bale,Felt Circles and some Gorilla Glue.

My ribbon colors I used are: Creamsicle, Jade Blue, Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie, Autumn Pink

Using the glue, place eyes a beak and gobbler on the inside of the bottle cap.

With ribbons cut at about 2 inches. Place all 5 on the back in a fan like pattern with glue.

Cut your felt into a half circle and glue to the bottom half of the bottle cap. Glue the bale in the top center.

Cut your ribbon on an angle around the cap. Use a match to melt the edges of your ribbon.

Let dry and thread onto a chain for your little miss to wear for the holiday.

    What fun and clever projects, Adrienne! I’m partial to the pin (which could easily be converted into a hair clip!), but the necklace is adorable, too! I never saw the burlap bottle caps before… aren’t they perfect for fall designs?! Thanks for sharing your cute ideas. xoxo
