3. Use your scissors to cut at least 5 feather shape out of the white construction paper. Place 2 or 3 inside your salad spinner. Add a few drops of washable paint on top of them. Close your salad spinner and start spinning.

4. The paint will spread around the leaves and create a fun and unique pattern. Repeat with the other feathers.

5. Set the feathers aside to dry. Once they are dry, glue them to the back of your turkey body. Display your salad spinner turkey craft on separate sheet of white paper or hang them from a window or use them to decorate your kids table during Thanksgiving.
