  1. Follow instructions on how to make a pom-pom.  Leave a short amount of string on your pom-pom when you tie it up.
  2. Concertina a piece of coloured paper (portrait)
  3. Fold the concertina’d paper in half.
  4. Where the two halves meet, secure with glue, sticky tape or a stapler – Leave a gap at the bottom.
  5. Tie the pom-pom onto the concertina fan using the two short lengths of string and threading one through the hole in the concertina and one underneath the fan.
  6. Take a small yellow or black pom-pom and glue a small paper triangle for a beak and two googly eyes.
  7. Stick the small pop-pom head to the large pom-pom
  8. Add a small red pom-pom underneath the Turkey’s head.



  • We used yellow wool for our large pom-pom, you might want to use black.
  • If the Turkey is a bit wobbly, staple the ends of the concertina to some card to balance it.
