Next, cut a circle out of brown foam by placing the cup to make a circle or by using circle templates. Trace a large and a small circle on the brown foam, then cut out the circles.
Glue the smaller circle over the larger circle. that is about six inches in diameter. This will be the top of the hat.
On the smaller circle, attach the wiggly eyes, beak, and waddle. Allow to dry completely.
Cut the red foam into a waddle. Cut the orange foam into a beak.
Flip the headband and attach the feathers to the back of the turkey. Allow to dry.
Place the headband on the child and gently tighten the elastic using the loose end. Remove the headband and tie the loose end in a knot. Cut any excess elastic.
