Turkey Pumpkin

A new member joined my Pumpkin Gang  this weekend. Meet Mr. Tom Turkey Pumpkin.

I painted one of my extra Dollar Store pumpkins brown.  Since they are no longer available, a regular pie pumpkin would work for this craft as well.

I glued the face onto a peanut shaped body made from brown craft foam.

I glued the body on the front of the pumpkin with hot glue,

and added some feet 

Before gluing the feathers on the back, I did small little cuts on each of them to make them appear more feather like.  They are on the yellow feather too, it is just really hard to see on camera.

The last touch was to add his wings, and Mr. Tom Turkey was born.

Update:  The craft foam pumpkins from the Dollar Tree that I used in this craft are now available online at  They are available in orange and white and in smaller quantities.
