Fall is no-doubtedly in the air and the hot weather here in New York City has passed. I noticed the leaves only started to change in New York City the past two weeks, but it still seems as if it were only September. With Halloween about to pass and moving into November and Thanksgiving, I was trying to think of a classic kids craft that you could make now that would last as a home decoration through November – a pine cone turkey! Easy and super cute. Here you go….


Pine Cone Turkeys

These little turkeys are fun to assemble and provide colorful decorations for your home, neighborly gifts or even the Thanksgiving table.

Supplies:

  • Pine cones
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Feathers
  • Googly eyes, white school glue or hot glue gun, other embellishments (optional)

How to:

Step 1: Use glue to attach feathers to back of pine cone.
Step 2: Curl top of pipe cleaner to form head.
Step 3: Attach googly eyes to either side of head.
Step 4: Attach head to front of pine cone.

Fall is here and pumpkins are everywhere! With rain coming our way, what is a fun project – we love the idea of a pumpkin bird feeder.  Here is what you can do as a family that will make a nice outdoor decoration…

  1. Go to any local grocery store or nursery and pick up a small pumpkin (3-5 lbs.)
  2. Buy regular bird seeds/supplement at a local pet store
  3. Cut a 3- to 5- pound pumpkin in half
  4. Scoop out the seeds, but leave a ½-inch thick wall
  5. Cut a ½-inch-deep groove in the rim for pumpkin seeds
  6. For perches, poke holes and insert twigs from your yard
  7. To hang, knot two lengths of twine together in the center; tack knot to feeder bottom
  8. Fill with birdseed
  9. Hang anywhere from your porch to a tree in your front yard and enjoy!
