Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner? What's next, snowmen? Probably, and before we know it! For now, let's just enjoy this kid-friendly Thanksgiving craft that not only leaves us with an adorable little decoration but, provides a great way to upcycle Kcup coffee pods.

  • brown acrylic paint OR brown spray paint (either works fine) 
  • red acrylic paint (turkey waddle) 
  • orange acrylic paint (turkey nose) 
  • googly eyes (sticky-back is what I used but you could also use a glue stick to glue them on) 
  • feathers (found in the craft section at major craft stores) 
  • glue stick 
  • sponge brush
  • small paintbrush 


Before you start, empty your spent K-cups by pulling out the filter and washing them. Then allow them to dry.  

#1. Paint all your turkey's brown and let air dry for several hours.

#2. Using a glue stick, give each turkey some feathers and 2 eyes (see photos). 


#3. Use the smaller paintbrush to give each turkey a nose using the orange acrylic paint and let dry.

#4. Finally, use the smaller paintbrush again to give each turkey a waddle on the side of its nose using the red paint. 


There you have it, a quick and easy Thanksgiving project that the kids will love. This makes a great class project (just paint the brown base layer ahead of time)!
