Bottle Cap Turkey Magnets


I don't have any Thanksgiving themed things in my house so I knew it was time to get creative.
When I think Thanksgiving, I think Turkeys.
We made turkey magnets out of bottle caps!

First I poked holes in bottle caps using a small screwdriver
Add as many holes as you'd like for the feathers and more if you want legs

I had a bunch of metal bottle caps with magnets on the back that were blank and waiting for me to do something with
I just glued the whole thing to the back of the plastic bottle caps

Poke feathers into the holes made with the screwdriver

This bottle cap wouldn't fit a metal bottle cap on the back of it
so I just glued the magnet to the feathers

A was more interested in blowing the feathers

I used small pipe cleaners twisted together to make my tail feathers
and 
glitter to color the body

 C left her bottle cap white
used googly eyes
used construction paper for the beak and wattle
and
pipe cleaners for little feet
 My husband used construction paper to cover his bottle cap
and
even made construction paper wings
 Here's my little guy!

  2. I'd love to see them if you give it a try! I love magnets too, I collect them from everywhere we go, but haven't made many. It was fun, so we'll be doing it more often :)

  8. Another clever idea! I love how you put the holes in the caps to make it easy to attach the feathers or pipe cleaners ~ brilliant!

    I'm featuring this idea too in my Five Fun Ideas post.
