Every year we make turkey handprints for Thanksgiving and although they would certainly be treasured on paper, it’s fun to do something different each year. Handprint turkeys are one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions! This year we made Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Wood Clip Frames.
Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Wood Clip Frame
Our latest box of complimentary craft supplies from Craftprojectideas.com came with all these wonderful natural materials that just seemed perfect for a fall or Thanksgiving craft. I already had the wood clip frames on hand, so the idea came together.
How to make a Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Wood Clip Frame
- Wood clip frames
- Tempera Paint
- Natural Braiding Cord
- Wiggly Eyes
- Natural Wood Blocks Alphabet Beads
- Hot Glue
- Sharpie Markers
- Natural Wood Beads
Paint the child’s hand and make a turkey handprint on the frame.
After it dries, add the details: legs, wiggly eye, beak and waddle.
On the braiding cord, bead the child’s name using colored plastic beads, natural wood beads, and the natural block wood alphabet beads.
Knot the ends of the braiding cord and hot glue them to the back of the frame.
All done! Your Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Wood Clip Frame is an adorable display for Thanksgiving or gift for grandparents.
Throughout the year your clip frame can hold photos or artwork by the child.
Preserve those precious little handprints each Thanksgiving. You’ll always treasure them!
