Fun Fall Turkey Suckers!

 

I’m thankful for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a national holiday that is set aside each year for us to focus on the blessings of life rather than the problems of life. I think that there should be more of that.

Maybe we should have a monthly Thanksgiving celebration. Being thankful and looking at the positive is good for each of us, and it’s good for the national frame of mind. Too bad it comes only once a year; still, I’m thankful that it DOES COME!

Let’s make some fun Fall Turkey Suckers.

Directions

1. Cut 6 squares from the burlap that are 4” square.

2. Cut pieces of the embroidery thread about 12” long, making sure to cut 2 of each color.

3. Cut 6 tiny triangle beaks from the orange felt, and cut 6 pieces from the red yarn about ¼” each.

4. Cut 24 small feathers from the cardstock, 4 of each color. I made my feathers about 2” long.

5. Now wrap a piece of the burlap over a sucker and tie it tightly with 2 pieces of the embroidery thread. Knot it and tie a little bow, and trim off the excess.
