Turkey Fun

I whipped up two of these placemats yesterday for my little niece and nephew who are 4 to have a special Thanksgiving surprise. I will need to get them into the mail today to make sure they arrive on time. I googled Dresden plate turkey and found several ideas. The ones I found were all in browns or fall colors. I remember as a kid making turkeys with all the primary colors in construction paper and my kids did too. So that's the way I decided to make these little rascals. The eyeballs look kind of spooky, so I may need to add some black dots to make them a little friendlier.

It was a fun and colorful way to spend the day.


  1. This is so clever. I love it! My first thought was black buttons for the eyes, but buttons on a placemat are probably not very functional. But, yes, I would add something to the eyes. Then they would be perfect!! Such a good aunt.

  2. Very cute. I remember hand print turkeys once upon a long time ago!
