feathers

We made these sugar cookies into colorful feathers. [and hearts, just for kicks]
The feathers were for this little turkey and his friends [not pictured].I rolled out brown paper on the table. Drew up some featherless turkeys, and Indians, and pilgrims with non-toxic black crayon. But just to make sure the crayon didn't rub onto the cookies, I put down some clear plastic wrap. Then, we displaced feathers where needed...you know like on Indian head pieces or pilgrim hats or turkey bums.

And since the feathers weren't nearly colorful enough, we frosted them with various colors and amounts of buttercream frosting. The pilgrims and Indians also got large doses of color, where needed.
