How to Make a Raisin Box Turkey

For this project, you’ll need a few craft supplies that you probably already have on hand. You’ll need brown and orange cardstock, fabric leaves in fall colors, scissors, a pencil, craft glue or a low temperature glue gun, and some googly eyes. And of course, you’ll need a box of raisins to make a raisin box turkey!

Step 1 – Trace and Cut the Box Liner

Lay your raisin box in the center of the brown cardstock and align the bottom of the box with the bottom edge of the paper. Then, use a pencil to mark the top of the raisin box and a ruler to make a line all the way across the paper.

Cut the paper along the pencil line.

Step 2 – Wrap the Raisin Box

Next, you’ll wrap the brown cardstock around the raisin box. Cut off any excess paper.

Then, glue the paper together along the seam.

Step 3 – Add the Feathers

With the back of the raisin box facing you, attach the colored fabric leaves to the back with small dots of glue.

Step 4 – Glue on the Eyes

Now, turn the juice box around so the leaves are in the back and glue on the googly eyes.

Step 5 – Add the Beak

Cut out a small triangle for the turkey’s beak from the orange cardstock. Then, glue it on the craft foam just beneath the googly eyes.
