We love to use recycled materials for projects but also like to recycle crafts! We turned our squeeze art pumpkin into a cute and colorful turkey, just in time for Thanksgiving!

Squeeze Paint Pumpkin Turkey – Materials:

– One squeeze paint pumpkin (see tutorial here)

Colorful cardstock

– Tape or glue, scissors

– Two large googly eyes


Cut out a triangle for nose, feathers, feet, and wattle. Use double sided tape or glue to attach to your turkey. We just cut the pieces by hand by first drawing on the cardstock. You can cut one feather shape and use that as a template to cut more feathers.

And voila! Your colorful turkey is ready to play. He makes a cute addition to your Thanksgiving party or decor in the home!
