Pinecone Turkeys
Pinecone Turkey

This Thanksgiving, gather the family to make this whimsical craft. These adorable Pinecone Turkeys are an easy craft for the kids to make. Go on a nature hunt to find the pinecones outside, then bring the fun into the kitchen with this activity.
These little turkeys would be a great centerpiece bunched together in a basket, or would work as individual place card settings - just attach a card with a guest's name on it. Line your mantle with these gobblers, or tie them onto a gift package of treats for your neighbors. However you use them, this activity is a great way to keep the kids busy during the holiday break! 

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Paint brush
  • Pinecones (clean and dry)
  • Colorful feathers
  • Small piece of orange foam or paper
  • 2 small googly eyes
  • Scissors


  1. Turn your pinecone on its side so the bottom of it is facing you (this will be the face).
