Halloween is officially over and now it is time to start getting ready for the next holiday! Today I wanted to show you how to make a Terrific Turkey Tiara for your dolls for Thanksgiving dinner.
To make your own Terrific Turkey Tiara you will need:
- Your doll to trace her foot for the Turkey’s body
- construction paper in white or tan, red, blue, yellow, orange
- a felt pen
- a pencil
- glue stick
Step 1-Remove your dolls shoes and socks. Trace her foot on white or tan paper.
Step 2- Cut out your traced foot. This will be the turkeys body.
Step 3- Cut out four leaf shaped pieces of different colored paper, these will be the tail feathers for your turkey.
Step 4- Cut out a small triangle out of yellow for your turkey’s beak.
Step 5- Cut a small orange shape like a comma, this will be the turkey’s waddle.
Step 6- Cut out a 10 inch strip of black paper for the hair band. My paper was not long enough so I cut out two pieces and taped them together to create the band for your tiara.
Step 7- Use your felt pen to create eyes for your Turkey. Turn the toe part of your dolls traced foot down and the heal is the “face” of the turkey.
Step 8- Glue your waddle down and then your beak.
Step 9- Fan out and glue your feathers to each other. As shown in the photo above.
Step 10- Make a tape loop and attach the “feathers” to the tiara band. Then attach the “turkey body” with another tape loop.
Now your Terrific Turkey Tiara is ready to wear!
I hope you have fun making Terrific Turkey Tiaras for your dolls.
