For this Thanksgiving streamer craft, we used a regular brown cardboard roll. No paint involved. But if your cardboard rolls aren’t brown, then you will need to paint it.

In the past, we used cardstock for our windsocks, but this way there’s no staples involved, too. Just glue the streamers in place inside the cardboard roll, add a beak with wattle and some eyes, then hang!
