Glass Jar Turkeys (Single Stem)

The supply to re-purpose for the month of November is Glass Jars so we decided to make some turkeys! I made the Newspaper Glass Jars (to represent my hubby and me in the turkey lineup) and the boys made the Baby Food Glass Jar Turkeys. There are many different options you can do with this same idea such as adding tissue to the jars, sponge painting the jars, using craft feathers and on. We made ours with the jar upside down and put a battery tea light in but you could make them right side up as well. If you create a glass jar turkey please share what items you used and how they turned out!
Enjoy this single stem idea of
Glass Jar Turkeys
for ALL ages

The Stuff
The FUN!
  • Glass jar
  • Newspaper or paint for the body
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper for the face
  • Googly eyes
  • Newspaper or scrapbook paper for feathers
  • Glue
1. Make the body by either decoupaging the newspaper strips or painting brown. Let dry.

2. Make the faces (candy corn would also be cute beaks). Glue to jar.

3. Make the feathers by cutting paper or by folding newspaper (I did the newspaper fold for my boys but older kids can do this step). Glue to jar.
