Leaf Turkey

I love doing crafts with my kids any time of the year, but Autumn is possibly my favorite. We decided to make our own natural centerpiece this year and called him "Tom Turkey".
We filled a large paper grocery bag and filled it with newspaper. Then we used white glue to attach leaves all over the body. To give the leaves a bit of shine and help them adhere a bit better, we added a layer of spray gloss.
For the head we cut out a cardboard box and embellished it.
Voila...our very own leaf Turkey to help us celebrate the harvest season.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving~ I know we did!
