Pinecone turkeys roost @ WBCL

What is more fun than using clay and feathers? This group would be hard pressed to find something they like better other than painting. We used 3 colors of home-made clay for the head and added a blob of clay to the back end to mount the feathers for the tail. I had lots of left- over bright colored feathers in addition to the fall pack of brown and orange. As you can see, many turkeys got brightly colored tails. We used little plastic beads for eyes--some had extra detail around them provided by yellow or clay. Some even added feet with the yellow clay--mostly to stabilize the pine cone so it would not flip over.

The Family Arts &; Crafts group meets at the Wells Branch Community Library every Wednesday night at 6 pm taught by Dianne Koehler. The program lets us turn donated or recyclable materials and imagination into great projects.

You may also want to take a look at the new Art & crafts database the library recently subscribed to for the patrons. Check  the library website for details.
