Thanksgiving Gourd Gobblers

Steps:4
Like a 3-D version of the classic handprint turkey, these charming birds are great to make with the kids. The fat tear shape of a Hubbard squash perfectly mimics a turkey's body (but any squash or gourd with a similar profile will work); just add a cornhusk head and tail feathers.
Materials
  • 15 fried cornhusks, or construction paper (cornhusks, 8 oz., mexgrocer.com)
  • Red food coloring (soft gel-paste food coloring in Christmas Red, 3/4 oz., sugarcraft.com)
  • Screw punch
  • Brown paper
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Turkey template
  • Winter squash or gourd that narrows at stem

  • Tape measure
  • Fabric, such as silvered linen
  • Straight pins
