Let's get started
Step 1: Materials Needed

A sense of humor
Step 2: Mix and Match
Once you are all mixed together, you need one large ball and four smaller balls of the same color.
Step 3: Wing It!
Attach the wings to the side of the large ball. Press hard so they stick, you can also smooth one side on to the larger ball to ensure it stays put.
Step 4: Oh Tail Feathers!!
If you want color to your feathers create lines using a tooth pick. Roll out small amounts of colors like yellow, orange and read and lay them in the lines. You can then roll your tooth pick over those lines to flatten them together.
To get a more feathered look cut the tail feathers apart, then lay them back on top of each other with a slight curve. To cut you can use your handy dandy tooth pick, a knife, scissors or the power of the force. If you can cut clay with the power of the force, please comment and attach a video, this I have to see!
Once your tail is tail-tastic, attach it to the body in the same manner as your wings.
Step 5: Stick Out Your Neck!
Take your last brown ball and roll it into a coil. Take the end of the coil and fold it back onto itself, this will make the head. Smooth the head together.
Give your neck a sight S curve. With your toothpick poke a hole in the middle of the face. Roll out yellow, orange, or yellow orange clay for a beak then push it into the hole you just created. Think of one end like a point and the other end of the beak like a peg, put the peg in the hole. Then attach that awesome head to the body.
Step 6: Gobble Gobble!
To make the eyes make a small hole on either side of the head. Roll a really small black coil and cut little pieces. Roll those into a ball and use the toothpick to put them in place.
Woot! Now your turkey can see how funny (or crazy) your family is!
Step 7: Card Me!
Step 8: This Turkey Smells Like Feet!
Step 9: Bake It!
Once out you can create cards with your family or friends name on it and place it where you want them to sit.
They get a cool take home gift, and you get piece of mind knowing crazy and Sally is not sitting next to you or grumpy grandpa!
I'd love to see your Turkey place card holders when you make them, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Step 10: Poofrabbit's Tips and Tricks
Seriously best tip I have for fixing dried out sculpey is in one of my other instructables HERE I was so excited when I learned how to fi my dried out clay, and now I'm a mess making crazy sculpey stuff all the time!
If you bake 10 degrees cooler than the package says for an entire hour, you will get a harder clay.
Let the clay stay in the oven until the oven cools completely down, this allows the clay to actually keep cooking and you will be surprised at the results difference.
Use a brush and baby oil to get rid of fine lines and finger prints
Mix your own colors. They have a million and one colors, and that's great but you can do a lot with a basic color set.
