This Tootsie Pop turkey pumpkin was an easy, fun fall project that you can display from Halloween through Thanksgiving. The best part is that it can be re-used as a decoration each year since it is made out of one of those craft (foam) pumpkins that you can pick up at Michaels. Plus, by not using a real pumpkin — no sticky sticks for the lollipops! And if the lollipops aka feathers don’t last long around a sweet tooth and get plucked, it’s easy to pop in a replacement so you always have a full-feathered turkey on display.
I haven’t seen this done before as a turkey (although it’s quite possible I’m not the first to think of it), but I was inspired by the Tootsie Pop pumpkin featured on Martha Stewart at http://www.marthastewart.com/264575/lollipop-holder?backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/outdoor-decorations-for-halloween#slide_2.
