Calling All Crafters! Turkey Pots for Giving

Fire up your glue guns Folks, cuz we're about to get crafty! 
Shhh...you don't actually need to be that crafty for this one-
Just be able to paint and glue!
Crafty Christy has been busy whipping up these cute little turkey pots for our parent volunteers to thank them for taking time to help in class around this time each year.

Here is what you need for each pot:
(all supplies can be found at your local craft store) 

*2 1/2"-3" Terra Cotta Pot
*Brown, Orange, and Red paint
*Wooden Craft Spoon=brown body
*Long Heart 1"=red waddle
*Small Heart 1/2" or 3/4"=orange beak
*Large Heart 1 1/2"=orange feet
*Small black pom poms or beads for the eyes
*Artificial Leaves
*Seasonal Print Fabric 3" =bow

Step 1: Paint all wooden parts. We do assembly line style and paint large quantities all at once.

Step 2: With pinking shears, cut 3" strip of fabric and tie into a knot.
Step 3: With a hot glue gun, glue small orange heart on top of long red heart. Glue long heart to craft stick. 
Glue eyes above and bow below.
Step 4: Glue leaves to back of pot- 2 on the sides, one in the middle. 
Glue large orange heart on bottom.
Step 5: Glue Turkey Body to front of pot.
Fill with Fall Chocolate Kisses, Mini Fall Chocolate Bars, or any other festive goodies. 
Happy Turkey Day Y'All! 
Gobble Gobble!
