Adorable Turkey Barrettes for Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I just had to share this idea with anyone who has little

barrettesgirls in their life.

These are so cute and easy! The idea is totally not my own. For other ideas, detailed instructions, and a PATTERN to use go to Nancy’s Couture.

Here is how I did it. I bought a bag of 6 clips at Michael’s for $3 but used a 40% off coupon. :-) They also have similar ones at WalMart, but these worked better for toddlers. It just happened that I already had all of the felt colors and puffy paint, plus I

didn’t need very much AT ALL! I was making them for 4  little girls ages 3 weeks through 2 years, so I needed them to be small.

I used the pattern HERE, but I made it about half the size when I pasted it into Microsoft Word.

I then laid it on top of my felt and cut out each piece I needed.

        Next, I hot glued them, two feathers at a time, to the barrettes.I glued the turkeys on top and then added the eyes and beaks with puffy paint to the turkey’s faces and that was it!

Total, it took less than 10 minutes for each barrette.Now my daughter and nieces will have adorable matching turkey barrettes for Thanksgiving day!
