These adorable little turkeys also make great magnets or lapel pins! Make a ton of them to give as gifts to your dinner guests, sell at craft shows, or share with friends.

You will need:

6″ circle of fall print fabric (body) Rust, or burnt orange or light brown felt (for face) Scrap of orange felt (for nose) 1 1/2″ wood heart (for feet) Acrylic paint: bittersweet Brush Black sharpee or Ultimate Marker Scissors or pinking shears Needle and thread Tacky glue

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

What you do

Paint the wood heart with 2 coats of bittersweet acrylic paint. Let dry. Use needle and thread to stitch edge under and make a running stitch around fall fabric. Pull thread to gather fabric and tie off. Flatten circle with stitching in center front. This creates the yo-yo.

Cut two face pieces from felt. It can be cut with pinking shears or straight. Glue or sew together around edges.

Cut beak from orange felt and glue on face. Use marker to make eyes.

Glue face to front of yo-yo to cover hole and stitching. Glue face and yo-yo to center of heart so round end of heart forms feet..
