How to make a Toilet Paper Roll Turkey with pipe cleaners

Create it!

Wrapping yarn

Step 1: Punch a single hole at the top and bottom of a paper tube.

Step 2: Cut a length of yarn and tie one end to one of the paper tube holes.

Step 3: Place glue on one side of the paper tube.

Step 4: Wrap the yarn around the paper tube and tie the end to the remaining paper tube hole.

Step 5: Bend and fasten a pipe cleaner to the yarn wrapped around the paper tube. Fasten the remaining end on the other side of the paper tube by looping the pipe cleaner end around the yarn and twisting to secure.

Step 6: Continue with additional pipe cleaners to create “feathers” for the turkey.

Step 7: Cut a small piece of pipe cleaner. Fold it in half and attach to the front of the turkey for the beak, twisting each end of the pipe cleaner around the yarn to secure.

Step 8: Glue pom poms for eyes onto the paper tube to complete the turkey.

We used more traditional colors for this turkey’s “feathers” but really any color would do to make each so unique and fun!
