turkey placecard to match

diy-thanksgiving-turkey-placecard

If you’ve made the turkey runner you also must make the placecards. Here’s a scaled down template with a foot so that they stand. The items you need are similar to the runner, except you’ll need craft paper instead of felt and there are no buttons. Here’s a list:

  • Brown, black, orange and yellow craft paper
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

Simply print the template, cut out the shapes and glue them together starting with the base circles, next the feathers (five per turkey), stand (score it in half) and finally beak (triangle) and eyes (circles).

Happy crafting!

Looking for a great way to dress up your Thanksgiving table!? Check out our “no sew” turkey table runner craft. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Brown felt, 19′ x 72′
  • Orange felt, 12′ x 12′ block
  • Light brown felt, 12′ x 12′ block
  • Yellow felt, 12′ x 12′ block
  • 4 black buttons
  • Fabric glue
  • Scallop ruler or medium size bowl

And here are the simple steps and a template:

  1. Take a scallop edge sewing ruler (or a medium size bowl) and mark your scallop ends.
  2. Trim your runner to match the length of your scallop. It should be approximately 17′ x 72′.
  3. Cut your scallop onto each end of the runner and set the fabric aside.
  4. Print off our template and cut out each piece. You’ll need two of each shape with the exception of the leaf where you’ll need 10 (five per turkey). (Orange – leaves; Light brown – large turkey body; Yellow – small turkey body; Orange – beak)
  5. Center the large turkey body circle in the center of your table runner, about 4 inches from the end of your runner and glue down the bottom of the circle. (Tip: Place your runner on the table before gluing and make sure that your turkey will be completely off the end of the table on each end.)
  6. Glue five leaves behind the base body in a fan and then glue down the remaining body circle
  7. Glue on the yellow small turkey body and orange beak.
  8. Sew on button eyes.

And don’t forget the placecards to match!
