You Will Need
- Artificial tree branches
- Hot-glue gun
- Magic marker
- Artificial berries
Snip leaves off the branches
Snip the artificial leaves off of the branches and glue them along the back of the bottom and the neck of the gourd to make feathers for your turkey.
Construct the wattle
Cut a leaf in the shape of a wattle to hang from the turkey's neck and glue it to the underside of the neck of the gourd.
Add a face by drawing eyes and a mouth, or by cutting out eyes and a mouth from your leaves and gluing them to the gourd.
Dress up the centerpiece
Dress up your centerpiece by spreading leaves and artificial berries near the base of the turkey, or by adding your own personal touch with candles or other decorative pieces.
Show off your centerpiece
Invite some friends and family over and be sure to point out your hand-crafted centerpiece.
