Easy Turkey Place Setting Craft

Turkey Block Place Setting

This turkey place setting craft is absolutely adorable!  It’s easy to create and use as a fun place setting this Thanksgiving.

I am so excited to be spending more time with friends and family this Thanksgiving weekend.  But first I have to share these adorable little Turkey Block Place Settings that I created for our kids.  

I plan on setting the “kids table” with these turkeys holding a tag with each childs name.  I know that they will love them, let me show you how to make your own…

Wooden alphabet blocks

Acrylic paint

Paint brush

Wooden bead


Hot glue gun and glue


  1. We start with these fun alphabet blocks painted brown.  It would be cool to use one with the first initial of each guest!

2. Begin by cutting strips of red, orange, yellow and brown paper 2 3/4″ by 3/4″.  Fold each piece of paper in half lengthwise.

3. Cut a curve into both ends of the paper and snip along the edge to create a feather.

4. Cut a yellow triangle for a beak and a red thing-a-majig.  What is that gobble, gobble called anyway?

5. Cut a piece of wire to 7″.  Use a hot glue gun to glue the feathers and wire to the back of the turkey.

6. Finally glue the facial features to the front of the block and paint on eyes.

He is far too cute, no?!  I plan on writing the kids names on a piece of card stock and affixing it to the wire holder to create a place setting.

We’ve also made this Apple Block Teacher Gift, these Pumpkin Block Place Holder and this Snowman Block Ornament.

Love it! We usually have 20-25 people for thanksgiving dinner. We decorate our tables with fall colored flower arrangements, pine cones, acorns, leaves, and candles. I totally love this idea – I think it would be great to get all the kids involved in making something for the thanksgiving tables.

This is the cutest!! I love it! Pinning!

These are stinkin’ cute! I think that my kiddos would love them (and my daughter that’s currently obsessed with blocks would just want to make turkey towers, but that sounds fun, too, right?)

These are so cute adorable and what a fun idea. I’m pinning this right now!

These are so perfect for a Thanksgiving table! I love these! My great aunt would always go all out for Thanksgiving when I was young, I loved it.

Another cute idea – I’ll add it to the to do list. Thanks
