Make a Glove Turkey for Thanksgiving

Jun 9, 2019


Welcome to Christopher Padilla Creative Designs, your trusted partner in website development and design. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a beautiful glove turkey centerpiece for your Thanksgiving celebration.


  • A pair of old gloves
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Colorful feathers
  • Construction paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Cardboard

Step 1: Preparing the Gloves

Start by obtaining a pair of old gloves that you no longer use. Make sure they are clean and in good condition. If needed, wash and dry them before proceeding.

Step 2: Cutting the Fingers

Using a pair of scissors, carefully cut off the fingers of the gloves. Leave the thumb intact, as it will serve as the turkey's neck. Make sure to create clean and even cuts.

Step 3: Feather Attachments

Now it's time to attach the colorful feathers to the glove. Apply a small amount of glue on the back of each feather and press it onto the top side of each glove finger. Repeat this process until all fingers are adorned with feathers.

Step 4: Eyes and Beak

Using a glue gun, attach the googly eyes to the front of the glove thumb. Cut a small triangle out of construction paper and shape it into a beak. Glue the beak just below the eyes to complete the turkey's face.

Step 5: Display Stand

To provide stability for your glove turkey, create a display stand using cardboard. Cut out a rectangular piece of cardboard and fold it into a triangular shape. Secure the sides with glue or tape. Place your glove turkey onto the stand.

Step 6: Final Touches

Feel free to add additional decorations to your glove turkey. You can use markers to draw patterns on the feathers or create a festive hat using construction paper. Let your creativity shine!
