    I don't know if you've tried this one or not.

    Take a large pinecone (I just gather them from under my sister's large tree. Free is good.) and lay it on its side. Wrap half a chenille stem around the pointy end. Use the ones that have bumps - they go from thick to thin to thick again. One of the thick bumps becomes the turkey's head that narrows into a pointed beak. At the fat end of the pinecone have students dip the ends of feathers into glue and stick the feathers between the layers of the cone to make a turkey tail. Some teachers have students add wings to the sides of the cones, some add googly eyes to the chenille stem head. They are really cute and don't take much time or money. I wish I had a picture!
