Bottle Cap Turkeys

This isn’t what it looks like…I swear! My husband loves fancy sodas in glass bottles and usually gets some for his birthday each year. I’ve been saving bottle caps for quite a while and am now finally working through the stash :).P1020572

These little turkeys would be so cute on goodie plates or thank-you gifts for friends or teachers. They would also look darling on napkin rings at your Thanksgiving table!

The best part about these cute little turkeys is that you can use a variety of materials for the tail feathers, which means just about anyone can make these if they have a few bottle caps lying around. All you need is some paint, hot glue and tail feathers (leaves, feathers, ribbon, construction paper, whatever!). I made these with my 4 year old and it was a fun bonding time while his little brother slept.

I’m linking up to What Are Little Boys Made Of? Thanksgiving Ideas Link Party, Making it With Allie, Get Your Brag On, Crafty Soiree, Show Off Your Stuff, 3 Boys and a Dog, Fun Stuff Fridays, Thanksgiving Traditions, and Strut Your Stuff.

  5. I'm writing because I run a sensory site and am looking for great ideas for Thanksgiving. And as any parent, we’re looking for terrific Thanksgiving crafts and ideas for kids with Sensory Processing Disorder and on the Autism Spectrum. Would you add a link to a craft idea or two on our blog? Here's the link to share and get more traffic to your site…
