printable // pineapple turkey table decor
My family has a Thankgiving tradition of setting up a pineapple turkey. If you do a Google image search for 'pineapple turkey' you'll find that we're not the only family with this tradition. We have an old felt turkey head that would have been part of my mom's thanksgiving table growing up. Then one year it went missing. The tradition needed to live on, so we made a new one.
We eventually found the vintage turkey, but decided that the new one was cuter. To up the cuteness a little more, I made a set of printable turkey heads so you can have a pilgrim or Native American (or both!) pineapple turkey on your table this year!

Print the page(s) on card stock, and cut around the shape. Fold the head in half so the two sides match up.
Punch a hole in the center of the fold.
Use double-sided tape (or glue) on one half of the head, then slide a short wooden skewer through the hole and lay it on the tape.
Fold the other half of the head down and press the edges to hold it together. Try not to press firmly in the skewer, as it will crease the neck.
With the pineapple laying on its side, stick the turkey head in the bottom of the pineapple.
If you're feeling extra industrious, add some feathers in the top part of the pineapple. But actually that part works perfectly well as tail feathers all on its own.
