Lightbulb Turkeys

I've been saving lightbulbs for awhile...but I wasn't sure what I was saving them for until the idea to make turkeys with them came to me one day. They were the perfect shape to make turkey heads....

First I hot glued them to the inside of a lid so that they would stand up on their own. 

Then each of the kids painted theirs brown and we let them dry for a day. 

Later we cut out felt feathers and glued them on, as well as the rest of the face. :) I think they turned out pretty cute and the kids had fun making them!


  1. This is a GREAT idea, Bree. I've made other things out of light bulbs, but never a turkey. Ingenious to put them in a lid so that they stand up well. Oma

  2. Love the light bulb turkeys. Wish you had been around when I was teaching school and needed ideas.

  3. These are brilliant! So crafty. Looks like I'll be saving my light bulbs now. I wonder what Aussie animal I can make. Koala? Kangaroo?
