DIY Thanksgiving Ribbon Turkey Decoration

Add a little fun and whimsy this Thanksgiving with this Quick and Easy Ribbon Turkey Decoration.

Featured Storage:  Deflecto Ribbon Dispenser and Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer

Materials Needed:

  • Felt Pieces:  Brown, Red, and Yellow
  • Assorted Ribbon
  • Googly Eyes
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun or Craft Glue
  • Clothespin
  • Cardstock
  • Permanent Marker
  • Ruler

  • Draw a simple turkey body, beak, and wobbler on the cardstock to create a pattern.   
  • Or, you can download, print, and cut Design Team Member Beth Watson's turkey pattern here.
  • Trace pattern pieces onto the felt and cut out.  (Cut two turkey bodies)
  • Glue googly eyes, beak, and wobbler onto the turkey body.

  • Measure and cut six-inch lengths of rainbow-colored ribbon from your craft stash. Fold each piece of ribbon into a loop and secure at the ends with a glue gun and glue sticks. For each turkey, you will need 10-12 loops of ribbon.

  • Line up the loops in the color pattern that you prefer.  Attach each rainbow ribbon loop to the back piece of the turkey body with a glue gun and glue sticks. Measure and cut two lengths of yellow ribbon six inches long, tie a not near one end, and then cut out a triangle notch to resemble the turkey legs. Glue to the bottom of the body of the turkey.

  • Glue the front piece of the turkey onto the back, which will cover all of the ribbon ends. Attach a wooden spring-style clothespin to the back center of the turkey with a glue gun with the clip end pointing up.

Ribbon Turkey Decorations make Great Place Cards for your Thanksgiving Table.  

Cut a strip of cardstock 3/4″ in width, hand letter your name onto the strip with a Permanent Marker, and then clip into the clothespin. The wooden clothespin acts as a stand for the turkey to sit and a clip to hold the names as place cards.

The Ribbon Turkey Decoration was designed by Beth Watson.

Organizing Holiday Craft Supplies


Christmas Crafting Organization Tips…

It’s that time of year when thoughts are leaning towards the Holidays.  For many, the Holidays are a favorite time of year to do craft projects.  There’s so much crafting, creating, gifting, and sharing to do.  Let's get started.

For a little inspiration, Design Team Member Sue Eldred shares with us how she organizes her craft supplies for the Ultimate Holiday Crafting Season.

To prepare for the busy season ahead, transition your space with all your favorite Christmas Crafting Supplies conveniently close.  Mix a little old with the new to make it personal.  

Featured Storage:

Sue used the Deflecto Interlocking Tilt Bins to keep jingle bells, small wood embellishments, paints, bottle brush trees, all neatly organized and easily accessible.

Sue says..."I use a lot of ribbon during the Holidays.  I use the Ribbon Dispenser that fits into the large section of the Stackable Caddy Organizer and add all my favorite holiday ribbon rolls. As you can see, it holds several. The small and medium containers hold my glue guns and adhesives.  The Stackable Caddy is great for grab and go crafting."

The Deflecto Caddy Storage Tray is perfect for holding floral embellishments and beads.  It fits nicely into the large compartment of the Deflecto Stackable Caddy.

Use the Deflecto Stackable Open Cube to hold Holiday Dies and Stamp Sets. It’s also a great place to stash cut cardstock ready to be folded into cards.

The Deflecto Interlocking Marker Organizer is not only great for holding markers it's also great for holding paintbrushes, scissors, pens, and pencils. It looks great and keeps everything neat and tidy. (and…it fits nicely into the stackable caddy)

When working on cards, it’s great to have markers organized and close at hand. You can unfold the Expandable Marker Accordion into several different configurations.  It’s a perfect companion to have on your desk.

Update your Holiday Craft Space and enjoy the difference it makes.

Colorful Tie Dye Birthday Party


What's more fun than a Colorful Tie Dyed Themed Birthday Party?

When you're a young pre-teen, you want a birthday party that is fun and colorful and what's more colorful than tie-dye.

Featured Storage:  Deflecto 3-Tier Dessert Stand

The icing on the cupcake is the Deflecto 3-Tier Dessert Stand, which is easy to assemble and then flattens for storage.

The Deflecto 3-Tier Dessert Stand is quick to assemble in four easy steps.  It's made of durable and washable clear acrylic and even has holes around the tiers for cake pops or lollipops.  And each tier has a 1/4" edge that makes customizing a breeze!

To decorate the dessert stand, we cut tie-dye paper into 1/4" wide strips using a paper trimmer and attached them with a tape roller.

Did somebody say cupcakes?  Yes, please.

The Tie-Dye Themed Birthday Party was created by Design Team Member Beth Watson. For more tie-dye party ideas visit Beth's Blog here.
