Fall is a great time to sit around your table with the younger ones and make a few cute kids’ crafts. These little pine cone cuties are a traditional favorite! Today we are sharing a fun printable pattern with our own twist. You can find this pattern and the photo tutorial for these felt and pine cone turkeys at the end of this post. If you want some other fun Thanksgiving craft ideas you can make with kids, take a look at our turkey finger puppet and turkey crayon cup.
All you need for these felt and pine cone turkeys is a stack of felt, scissors, googly eyes, and some glue. Though I use hot glue for almost everything I make, a white craft glue would work well too—especially for little ones.
Felt is so fun to craft with and once you have the pieces trimmed, you can make these pine cone turkeys come to life with their own personalities. See my step-by-step tutorial of how I made these little turkeys below and you can download and print the pattern at the end of the post. We would love to see the results of your kids’ crafts so make sure and share photos on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
Tools & Materials
- Craft Scissors
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Pine Cones
- Googly Eyes
- Lia Griffith’s Wool Blend Felt – Mango, Cranberry, Pumpkin, Bark Brown, Doe Brown, Dove
How to Make a Felt and Pine Cone Turkey
- Gather your craft materials. Then download our turkey pattern at the end of this post.
- Use the pattern to trim your felt pieces. There’s also a pre-colored version if your kids want to make this turkey out of paper instead.
- Use glue to put the face pieces together and then the tail feathers (follow the template notes).
- Glue the tail feathers onto the back of your pine cone.

[…] The ol’ handprint turkey is a classic Thanksgiving craft, and lately we’ve been seeing some fun variations on it! This one comes from Lia Griffith, who came up with a pinecone-and-felt turkey that is so incredibly cute! You can work these into a Thanksgiving centerpiece or other vignette, or you could even attach slips of paper with names on them to turn these into fun place cards for Thanksgiving dinner!

Such a cute project. I’m going to do one with my Dad who is in a retirement community and one with my niece. Oh, and one for me, of course.
How lovely! Hope you all have fun!
Thank you so much. I have printed out four copies for my daughter, for my grandkids’ school teachers and for my neighbor who is so crafty to do for her grandkids. I know they will love it.
You are so sweet for sharing with friends and family. Hope they will enjoy making them!
Oh, these are so adorable….my grandkids will love making them….you are so kind to share your wonderful talent with us….hugs.
