Turkey Paper Headbands

I’m always looking for a fun and low-mess craft that I can do with my kids. My son is now at the age where he is really into crafts and wants to do a ton of crafts and fun little projects for every holiday. I’ve had to get my creative cap on over the past few months. Last week, I shared the tutorial for my Turkey Paper Bag Puppets, and today I’m sharing these adorable Turkey Paper Headbands. You’ll notice they look similar. This was a happy accident.

I was asked to lead the Thanksgiving craft for the fitness group I belong to. I had a bunch of leftover cut pieces from the paper bag puppets, so I decided to make a turkey headband and it worked perfectly! These headbands come together in minutes and all the kids absolutely loved them. I made them at my fitness class last week, at home with my son, and even at a Friendsgiving play date we had today.

Supplies to make Turkey Paper Headbands

First, open up the Design Space file. You will have to pay for the feathers, just FYI. If you want to make more then one headband all you have to do is click on one of the pieces on the canvas, then select “select all” (top left side-bar), then select “duplicate” on the right hand top sidebar. Duplicate as many times as you need materials cut.

Once you have all your card stock cut; you want to make the headband. I use double sided tape to tape two pieces of rectangles together. Turkey Paper Headbands Step 1 Headband

This is what it should look like.

Next, you add on the beak aka the triangle. This is also a good activity to work on shapes and colors with the toddlers.
