Paint Sample Turkey Craft

Looking for a unique turkey craft?  My inspiration came from painting our house last week and all the paint samples I found!

You need:
Plastic bottle
Brown paint
Paint samples
Wiggly eyes
Glue
1)  Put several squirts of brown paint in a plastic bottle (we used a Fuze bottle).  Add a small amount (start with 1/2 tsp) of water, replace the cap, and shake!  Don't use too much water or the paint won't stick very well to the inside of the bottle!

2)  Glue 8-10 paint samples in a fan shape.  Allow to dry.  Use a hot glue gun to attach the paint samples to the bottle (for feathers).

3)  Use a hot glue gun to glue on wiggly eyes.  Use foam sheets for the beak, waddle, and feet.

I had some heart fun foam shapes.  We used two for the beak (a small and medium heart), one for the waddle, and two for the feet.
