Step 1: Paint the paper roll brown

Step 2: Use a big lid, plate or anything else that is round to trace half a circle. I used 3 scrapbook paper sheets: yellow, orange and red but you can stick to just 2 colors or even one. Simple is great.

Step 3: Cut out the half circles. If you’re using more than one paper sheet, make sure to cut different sizes.

Step 4: Add the googly eyes and cut out a beak and the red thing hanging off the turkey’s beak from felt and glue them to the paper roll

Step 5: Glue the half circles together, one on top of the other, like a sandwich. Glue to paper sandwich at the back of the turkey
