M & M turkeys
For each turkey, you will need:
2 pieces of orange nylon net, about 10" square each
1/2 of a brown pipecleaner
1 section of red chenille bump
2 tiny wiggle eyes
a piece of strong thread or thin string
1/2 to 1 cup plain M&Ms
a dab of glue
        Put the 2 pieces of net together, with the corners of one along the sides of the other, making 8 points. Pour M&Ms in center, gather up the points, twist and tie securely. Coil the brown pipe cleaner, leaving about 2"; curve the 2" to form the neck. Tuck the red bump into the bottom of the coil to form the wattle. Glue a tiny eye on each side of the head. Shape the body -- the M&Ms - so that the ends of the net become the tail and stick out the back. Insert the neck thru the net in the front.

Turkey Pin
Made from an ice cream spoon. Paint it flesh color. The face is painted, black eyes and a rust color for the 'mouth/beak'. He has a black 'stove pipe' hat made of "Art Foam". He has two tail feathers, one red and one yellow. These are also made of "Art Foam" with lines penciled in to make the details of a feather.
He has an orange heart inverted in front that has "Happy Thanksgiving" written on it.
And, of course, a pin on the back.
These are QUICK and EASY.
