Today I have an amazing 2 in 1 Thanksgiving Turkeys DIY! Of course, with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to make some simple versions of Thanksgiving Turkeys you can use for home decor. With that said, one turkey is a little shelf sitter and the other is a napkin holder. Both are so stinkin cute but you can always modify the DIYs per what you feel/want. As always, don’t forget you can watch how I made these DIYs at the link below!

Finally, let’s get you a supply list: Turkey Shelf Sitter
- Jenga Blocks
- Popsicle Sticks
- ‘Give Thanks’ wood piece
- Gold marker
- Black and White Paint
- Hot glue
- Fall leaves
Firstly, I had to put the Jenga blocks together to form the base. Then, I hot glued felt and this cute diamond pattern on. Afterwards, I cut part of a measuring stick and used that as the head of the turkey. I also cute out felt pieces to use as the beak and such.
Secondly, I cut popsicle sticks and painted them black and white. After, I dried the paint and colored it with a gold marker to match the diamond pattern. I then created some feathers from leaves and glued them onto the head, added a bow, and painted the ‘give thanks’ gold. Finally, you have a cute little turkey shelf sitter to add to your decor! Let’s get into the second of the Thanksgiving Turkeys!
Thirdly, here is what you’ll need for the second turkey DIY!
- Toilet paper roll
- Pipe cleaners
- Wood pieces
- Hot glue
- Mod Podge
This Thanksgiving Turkey was fairly simple. I hot glued the two wood pieces together, painted them white, and then drew on some eyes and glued her beak and such. Afterwards, I did the same feather effect with the leaves. Then, I used mod podge to get the diamond design onto the toilet paper roll and hot glued that to the back of the turkey. Lastly, I made some feet from the pipe cleaners and she was done!
