How to Make Turkey Boots

  1. Cut an 8 1/2x11 sheet of white paper in half lengthwise.
  2. Fold each in half again, lengthwise.
  3. Lay one piece of folded paper on top of the other, folded sides together. Holding them both together, cut strips on the folded sides of the paper, approximately 2/3 of the way down to the unfolded edges. Cut the strips to the same width as best as you can.
  4. Unfold each piece of paper and fold the opposite way. Fluff the cut edges to add fullness.
  5. Wrap one boot around each turkey leg, continuing to wrap even when it overlaps. Fasten the boot with tape.
  6. DO NOT attach boots during cooking.

Pumpkin Place Cards

You'll Need:

  • Orange paper, 9x12
  • White scrap paper for leaves and stem
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Pen

Instructions:

  1. Lay the orange paper horizontally.
  2. Cut the orange paper into one-inch strips. Cut each nine-inch strip in half.
  3. Glue eight strips together into a circle, overlapping each strip to the other at the center.
  4. Bring each strip up to the center and glue together. You will need to wait between strips in order for the glue to hold. Repeat the overlapping process to glue the top of the pumpkin strips together.
  5. Cut out a leaf shape from white paper. Write the guest's name on it. Fold in half lengthwise and glue to the top of the pumpkin.
  6. Cut a scrap of white paper roughly 1/2x2 inches. Wrap the "stem" around a pen or pencil to get it started, then roll it tightly and glue it together. Put a dab of glue on the bottom of the stem and attach it to the pumpkin.
