Tutorial Tuesday - Turkey Hairbow

Photobucket
It's tutorial Tuesday!! And I am so excited to bring you this tutorial. I apologize in advance if the pictures are crummy and to all the Momma's of little boys. I had every intention of completing a boy and girl tutorial, but...it's the holidays, and I am swamped! :)
 
 Anyway, here's today's tutorial, it's an easy faux turkey hairbow. I wanted something festive for my girls, but also not too goofy looking. Basically this bow looks like a turkey but is still super cute!

Here's what you need, 

Photobucket
(1) 5 1/2 inch piece of 3/8 brown ribbon 
(I had to use brown binding because I was out of brown ribbon!)
(1) 3 inch piece of 3/8" red ribbon
(2) 3 inch pieces of 3/8" yellow ribbon 
(2) 3 inch pieces of 3/8" orange ribbon 
(1) 1 ribbon wrapped alligator clip 
Hot Glue Gun 
 
Step 1) Take your brown ribbon and wrap a small section at the top around to meet the ribbon. It will look like a small turkey head. :) Glue in place.

Step 2) Now take the rest of your ribbon and meet the back of the "turkey head". This will form the body. Glue in place.

Step 3) Next make each of your remaining ribbon into small loops to create the turkey's "feathers". Glue each at the bottom where the ribbon meets.

Step 4) Now glue the ribbons to the back of your turkey in this order, yellow, orange, red (this should be above the turkey's head), orange, yellow.

Step 5) Now glue the red, orange and yellow feathers on top of the ribbon feathers.
