Here’s what you’ll need for this Thanksgiving Craft…

  • An apple with a nice flat bottom
  • battery operated tea light
  • scissors
  • brown thick paper for face
  • smaller paper orange triangle for the beak
  • 2 google eyes
  • feathers
  • Gobble  – a red piece of paper
  • hot or warm glue gun with glue sticks
  • Butter knife
  • optional: lemon or lime juice


*Note – because the apple is perishable, it is best to do this the morning of Thanksgiving

  • Make the turkey face by cutting out a circle, gluing the eyes, beak, and wobble
  • Glue the face on the front of the apple
  • Glue feathers to the back
  • Holding the apple, use a butter knife, or something similar – carve out a hole large enough for the tea light to sit-in
  • *you can remove the candle to rinse the white part of the apple under lemon or lime juice to prevent browning
