Turkey Wreath

Lion Brand® Bonbons®


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

Cut a 20 in. (51 cm) length of orange yarn and set aside. Wind all of the remaining orange yarn around the 8 1/2 in. (21.5 cm) side of cardboard. Slip the 20 in. (51 cm) length under the wrapped yarn and tie tightly to make a tied bundle of yarn.
Repeat with black yarn.
Pin orange bundle of yarn to top of foam ball with a straight pin, then smooth over half of the foam ball.
Repeat with black bundle of yarn on other half of foam ball.
Wrap both orange and black yarn with an orange chenille stem at bottom of foam ball. Trim any excess chenille stem and set Turkey aside.

Glue one end of one of the remaining yarn colors to the wreath. Wrap Wreath for about 2 in. (5 cm), then cut yarn. Glue cut end of yarn to Wreath. Continue wrapping Wreath with remaining yarn colors in 2 in. (5 cm) segments or as desired. Cover yarn ends of previous color with wraps of new color.

Wrap yarn at bottom of Turkey around to the back of the Wreath. Secure yarn ends with a strip of packing tape.
Cut 2 pieces, each 4 in. (10 cm) long from one orange chenille stem for Turkey feet.
Bend 2 remaining 2 orange stems about 2 in. (5 cm) from end for Turkey legs.
Wrap a foot piece around bent end of each leg.
Secure legs to back of Wreath with packing tape.
Glue eyes to Turkey. Cut and bend lengths of yellow and red chenille stems for beak and gobblers and glue to Turkey below eyes.
Lay Wreath onto a flat surface to determine the arrangement of feathers.
Pour a small amount of glue onto a paper plate.
One at a time, dip end of feather into glue, then insert into top edge of Wreath.
