Here's a project kids will be happy to lend a hand with -- crafting a gobblin' puppet from a garden glove.
|Prep Time: Under 1 hour|
|What you need:|
Paint or liquid embroidery (available at craft stores)
|Materials: fabric, paints|
|1.||Use the gardening glove for the bird's body. Cut feathers out of felt (make them a bit wider than the glove fingers) and fringe the edges. Now, glue one to each glove finger.|
|2.||Next, cut a wing shape out of felt and glue it to the palm of the glove. Use paint or liquid embroidery to enhance the plumage.|
|3.||To make the turkey's beak, cut out a pair of small felt triangles and glue them to opposite sides of the thumb tip.|
|4.||For the wattle, cut a 2-inch-long hourglass shape out of red felt. Drape the wattle over the base of the beak and glue it in place. Glue on googly eyes.|
|5.||To use the turkey puppet as a table decoration, stuff
newspaper into the glove and roll up the cuff.
