Tools and Materials:
1. Choosing Your Tulle
Begin by selecting your tulle in vibrant colors. You can find a wide variety of options at Walmart, Joann's, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or even your local florist. The more colors, the merrier for this Seasonal door decor idea!
2. Cutting and Knotting
Start by cutting your tulle into pieces approximately 22 inches long.
Fold each piece in half and scrunch it together.
Tie it in a slip knot on your dollar store foam frame.
Repeat this process, alternating between colors to create a layered effect.
Remember to pull the tulle nice and tight.
3. Building Substance and Color
For a richer look, add more layers. Three layers should give your wreath the substance and color depth it needs. Keep alternating colors and pull them tightly.
4. Covering the Styrofoam Bottom
To cover the green styrofoam on the bottom of the wreath, wrap it with black tulle and secure it with pins.
Trim off any excess tulle.
5. Adding the Turkey Head
Now, let's bring our turkey to life!
Spray paint a larger styrofoam ball brown. Stick 2 toothpicks into the bottom middle of the wreath and stick your brown ball into them. This is your turkey's head.
We will use mini styrofoam balls as the eyes.
Skewer 2 styrofoam balls with toothpicks and add some hot glue for stability.
Next, glue googly eyes to each of the Styrofoam balls using a bit of hot glue.
Now you have 2 character-filled eyes.
Stick your eyes into the head.
Now, we need to craft a beak.
Roll a piece of yellow ribbon into a cone and secure it with glue.
Allow this to dry.
Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the base of the cone.
Attach the yellow beak to your turkey's face.
Create the turkey's waddle using red yarn, securing it with a touch of hot glue.
