Turkey Washer Necklace

This year my daughter has really been into making jewelry.  She got a jewelry bead kit for her birthday and since then she has been obsessed.  So, for Thanksgiving I thought it would be fun to make some Turkey Necklaces out of some washers.

If you are not sure what a washer is just ask your husband, brother, or dad. Most likely they will have a bunch in different sizes you can have for this project.  We used a large one with a very small hole for these, but really you can use any size and they will still be super cute!

My youngest daughter had fun painting the washers with nail polish, she also just stuck her eyes to hers when the nail polish was wet and so far they have stayed on, however I prefer to use the glue gun just in case.  I glued the ribbon on for my youngest and painted the nose and gobble for her.  Since she is only two she did need some help with this project.  My oldest is six and was able to do it all on her own.

These would be fun to make on Thanksgiving Day.  You could set up a craft table for all the kids and let them make a turkey for everyone to wear!  It would be a great way to keep them entertained while you are cooking or watching the game.




Paint your Washers with brown nail polish (may need 2 or 3 coats).

Add Beak

Once the brown is dry Paint a beak and gobble on using your orange and red nail polish.


Using your glue gun glue your googly eyes onto your turkey.

Glue Ribbon

Cut strips of your ribbon out then fold in half and glue to back of washer.

About Tracey

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
