Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey

Create the perfect Thanksgiving craft with the Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey. This adorable Thanksgiving decoration is the perfect way to get your house ready for the upcoming holiday. Using some decorative tissue paper, you can transform an old work glove into your very own turkey to place anywhere around your house. It's a very simply decoupage design that even the most inexperienced crafter will be able to handle. After your turkey is complete, place him on the mantel or use him as a centerpiece during your dinner.

Decoupage Thanksgiving Turkey


  • Work gloves (or mittens)
  • Decorative and solid tissue paper to decorate turkey
  • White tissue paper (or fiber fill) to stuff glove
  • Aleene’s Matte Decoupage medium
  • Small plastic cup or paper plate (for Decoupage medium)
  • Wiggle eye(s)
  • Craft foam – orange for beak, red for wattle
  • Wood skewer
  • Wire (to secure glove to wood skewer)
  • Scissors
  • Wet wipes
  • Aleene’s Tacky Glue


  1. Tear white tissue paper into wide strips. Fold and crumple and push into fingers of gloves.
  2. For a plump turkey, crumple larger pieces of tissue paper to fill the palm section of the glove. Stuff to the wrist line.
  3. Stick pointed end of skewer into glove, piercing the tissue paper to help hold in place.
  4. Use wire to wrap tightly around wrist area of glove, securing wire in place. Wrap ends of wire and tuck cut ends into wrapped wires.
  5. Tear decorative tissue into small (approximately 1″ x 2″) pieces.
  6. Use finger(s) to apply Decoupage medium to index finger of glove. Place torn tissue over Decoupage medium and apply more Decoupage over tissue. Repeat until all four fingers are covered in tissue.
  7. Repeat to cover thumb and palm with solid color tissue. Do not overwork the tissue or it will start to tear as you apply the Decoupage medium.
  8. Let dry completely.
  9. Use scissors to cut away excess glove below wire.
  10. Cut beak and wattle from craft foam. Glue in place. Glue wiggle eye(s) in place.
