Ruffled Turkey

I fell in love with this tree skirt by Ashley via Pinterest a few weeks ago. It automatically went on my “must do” list. But really, who am I kidding. There’s no way I’ll actually get around to re-doing my tree skirt + matching stockings to go with it.

So I applied the same idea on a much, much smaller scale and created a ruffled turkey!


Step 1: Gather supplies. Burlap, an old sheet, scissors, glue gun, and a squash.

Step 2: Cut the burlap into strips and rip the sheet.

Step 3: Use the size of the squash to estimate the spread of the tail feathers and cut out of cardboard.

Step 4: Start glueing, creating the ruffles as you go.

Step 5: Continue layering burlap and whit until you’ve fill up the card board.

My original idea was to use a butternut squash, but in the end decided I liked the pumpkin much better. Can you see a turkey there? My boys think he needs a head. But I quite like him just the way he is.
