Thanksgiving is normally surrounded by earthy textures and warm colors (which I sometimes love), but injecting a bright dose of festive fun and color is something I love even more! These turkey balloons can be made in any color scheme and are great for decorating a thanksgiving feast with spunk.

Tie a turkey balloon onto each kid’s chair, or make a stash of them to set behind the dessert table. The little gobblers are wonderfully fun and will make every guest smile with aΒ relaxed –Β I’m happy to be at this house – smile

I mean how can you NOT smile looking at this colorful take on a turkey? :)

The most important part of getting this DIY to work is having good quality balloons and great helium, which is why I am excited to be partnering with Balloon Time for this second festive balloon post (see the Jack-O-Lanterns we did right here).

To make the turkey balloons you will need:

1. Start by printing out the turkey balloon outline – you can print it directly onto the vellum, or print it onto card stock, cut and use as a template.

2. Cut out one turkey face and 3 feathers for each balloon. Color the feathers using markers and a sharpie. Outline the turkey face adding eyes and a beak.

3. Next fill up the balloons using a Balloon time helium tank. For a project like this fun one, the balloons need to be filled full – which is why I suggest blowing them up at home where you can control the filling. Balloon time helium tanks are super easy to grab at a local shop and have on hand. If a store does the balloons at 70% they most likely will not float for this kind of craft. Be sure to fill the balloons to 100%, just before popping (we may have popped a couple attempting this).

4. Next attach the feathers to the top of the balloons by bending the bottom over about 1/4 of the way up and taping onto the tippy-top of the balloon. Attach the turkey face to the front. Now you have a floating turkey!
