Holiday craft season is completely here. Before jumping into Christmas, you should make something fun for Thanksgiving for your daughter. And making a Thanksgiving turkey bow headband is one of the best ideas.
You can make this with a little creativity and craft supplies. It is ideal to find a wholesale ribbon supplier for buying mesh ribbon, burlap ribbon, lace ribbon, satin ribbon, and many others. Below, I’m going to share a step-by-step tutorial for making your own Thanksgiving turkey bow headband.
What You Will Need:
- Ribbon in orange, yellow, brown, and red color
- Polymer clay in white, orange, red, and brown color
- Clay utensils, a roller, and a reamer
- Coordinating headband
First, you should make the face of the turkey. For making this, just roll out clay, ball it up, and roll it out sometimes until it’s pliable enough for working with. You can use a bead reamer for making a vertical hole in your turkey head. You only require scraps of the yellow, red, and white. Baking will vary, but you should bake for about one hour. After preparing your head, you can use a bow maker for making the bow feathers.
Start by laying a piece of ribbon along the bottom of the bow maker. You can take a length of ribbon about 10-inches, but a little longer or shorter is also fine.
After that, cut 4 different colors of ribbons like red, brown, yellow, and orange, about 20-inches long. You can use the width of the bow maker as per your choice. Then feed the ribbon between the two halves, looping it back and forth.
The bow maker will hold it in place while you work. You will need to repeat the process with all your colors of ribbons.
After gathering all ribbons, you should squeeze your layers together with the band.
After that, start to bring your middle ribbon up from each side and tie a tight knot on the center of the bow for securing the loops.
You can make a double knot to keep it in place. Then, bond them head-on. For this, you can feed the ribbon through the hole going up and down, and tie it in the back.
At last, fluff your loops and you will have a bow turkey. Now, you will be able to tie it onto a headband using hot glue or craft glue to secure it in place.
By following the above-mentioned tips, you can make a beautiful Thanksgiving turkey bow headband. You can find a wholesale fabric supplier for buying grosgrain ribbon, burlap ribbon, tule fabric, lace, deco mesh, and many others.
