2. While the sticks dry, prepare your turkey face. Cut out two large white circles from the white craft felt, and two small black circles from the black felt. Layer them to create eyes. You can then cut out a triangle from the orange felt for a beak, and don’t forget the gobbler using the red felt.

3. Assemble the face on the front using hot glue.
