Turkey Mesh Wreath

Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. But you still have time to make a fun but simple mesh wreath for Thanksgiving. Today I made this Turkey Mesh Wreath using my Mesh Wreath tutorial and just a little bit of creativity.

First I made a mesh wreath using this tutorial. There wasn’t any yellow mesh wreath so I simply put some yellow tulle ribbon in between the mesh to bring a little more color into the wreath.  I left a space at the bottom to put out the turkey that I had already drawn on a pizza box lid.

I layed the metal wreath form on top of the pizza box lid and drew the curve of the wreath along the bottom first. Then I just free handed the turkey form. It’s an easy shape that anyone can do. Then I covered the entire turkey shape with burlap, glued onto the back with hot glue.

Next I added wings using a layer of brown mesh under burlap with fringed edges.

 To make the eyes I cut circles out of a wax coated paper plate, colored in the black parts with permanent marker and then covered them with dimensional magic. I did the same thing for the beak to help protect it from the weather and to also give it a more polished finish.  I also added a little bit of red mesh under the beak, all with hot glue.

Finally the turkey was ready to be added to the wreath but how to do it? There’s a simple way to add any decoration to a mesh wreath, just glue pipe cleaners on the back and twist them onto the metal wreath form.

Voila! There’s a turkey on my table!

And then you’ll have a cute Turkey Mesh Wreath for you front door this Thanksgiving. It’s the perfect thanksgiving decor to welcome to your family this season.
