How to Make Paper Turkey to Celebrate Holiday Season?

by Nitish Rana Writer

Want to add fun to this holiday season? Whether crafting DIY decorations for this Thanksgiving dinner or simply want to indulge in the strength of autumn, it is very simple, quick and creative to make a turkey out of white paper bags with handles. It will definitely please both adults and children. It needs a couple of simple materials to add some thrifty fall effect whenever it is needed.


What will you need?

First of all, you need to gather the materials. You will need a few basic items like three printed paper bags (2 small cheap paper bags and one full-size paper grocery bag), few sheets of newspaper, one sheet of white typing paper with 8 ½ x 11-inch dimensions, scissors, and craft glue or hot glue gun. If you want to add any other material, it will be up to you, according to how elaborate you want your presentation to be in your finished turkey.


Turkey is made two smaller bags as drumsticks and one big bag for the body. It just takes a few minutes. So, you can have a lot of time to finish decorating, playing, or doing other craft projects.


To make the body of turkey – Take a full-size paper bag, and it should be ¾ full with crumpled newspaper. It will fill out the body. It gives a plump look and keeps it from collapsing once it is ready. After stuffing the bag, fold the corners diagonally and glue them well.


Shape Drumsticks – Have two smaller paper bags to craft the drumsticks. One hand should be turned into a fist and stuck in each bag. Mold the opening of the bar over your wrist. It will give recognisable drumstick shape to your bag. Remove your hand from the bag and fill the rounded part with newspaper. The opening of each bag should be twisted and shut secured with glue. Drumsticks should also be filled to be in their actual shape.


Cut the booties for drumsticks – Drumsticks are not complete until you dress them in frilly white booties, just like a typical Thanksgiving turkey. Cut the typing paper sheet in half, and each piece should be folded in half and lengthwise. Make a series of cuts in open edge with scissors to create a clean fringe.


Put everything together – Wrap a bootie around each drumstick end and stick them using glue. Stick the drumsticks on either side of sealed part of turkey and glue them. As a result, you will get a funny, realistic baked bird that your guests may just confuse it for real.
