How to Make a Turkey Using Egg Cartons


Instructions to make turkeys using an egg carton. A cute Thanksgiving table decoration.

Materials Needed:

  • Two-Cup Section from an egg carton (still attached)
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Feathers, beads, or other misc. supplies (optional)

Bend the egg carton cups towards each other, rim to rim (this will make an oval shape). Paint the outside of the egg cups brown. Glue or staple them together to form the turkey's body. Use the paper to make feet, beak, and other other body parts you desire. You can add real feathers for the large tail feathers or make paper feather shapes. Use beads for eyes, or use your imagination with other misc. supplies!
