5. Place your large cheese ball on a platter. Cut the baby carrot into matchsticks and slip three under each side of the small end of your cheese ball. These are the turkey's feet.

6. Poke the pretzel rods and sticks into the back wider end of the cheese ball. I broke the rods into different lengths to help fan them out like a turkey's tail.

8. Poke pecan halves in front of the crackers for your last row of turkey tail feathers. Make sure to save one pecan for the beak.

9. Roll the cream cheese for decorating into two balls, slice the ends off of your olives, and use a vegetable peeler to peel a strip from your red pepper.

10. Pull your turkey head from the fridge and decorate. Press the cream cheese balls toward the top of the head. Press the olive ends into them so they flatten out. Poke a pecan half under the eyes, then press the end of the red pepper strip above the pecan so it hangs to one side.
