|I am so thankful for paper bags to use in paper crafts. You can use this technique to make all sorts of hat designs as well as this cute Thanksgiving turkey hat.
You will need a square bottom paper bag and some colored card or paper.
Open the paper bag and cut down the center side fold. Glue the sides down to strengthen the hat.
Cut five circles from the colored card and cut one of them in half to become the wings.
Glue the circles together to form the body of the turkey.
Draw in the eyes and glue on the beak.
Glue the turkey to the bottom of the bag.
Check the size of the hat you need by popping it on the child’s head and make a mark.
Cut feather shapes from the card and staple in place at the top of the bag up to the head size mark.
You may need to cut the bag down if it is too long.
