Create the quintessential Thanksgiving place setting or centerpiece with this charming compound model. Joyce has combined Leyla Torres’ “Abundant Hen” with a fan-fold ornament to form what she calls a “churkey.” No matter, it works well as a turkey. Best of all, the “hen” is actually a gift box and you can put little candies and other treasures inside for your guests to discover.
