It is the time of year when your pine trees are dropping their cones all over your lawn. Why don’t you collect the cones and use them to make a simple pine cone turkey to add festivity to your Thanksgiving dinner table. This is a nice way to use the cones instead of bagging them for the garbage.

All you need are:
- round pine cones (you can cut the ends off of the long ones)
- a glue gun and glue sticks,
- small brown or black pompoms or acorns
- red and orange felt
- orange pipecleaner
- a selection of feather
- small googly eyes
- scissors (and wire cutter)
