Turkey Pretzel  and fast and easy treat for fall or Thanksgiving, Party Recipes for kids, Snack Ideas for Fall
Turkey Pretzel Pops

My girls love to make fun treats for the Holidays, so I am always looking for ideas that are fast and easy…. but most of all, cute.  These Turkey Pretzel Pops are a fun options.  They don’t cost much to make, and are absolutely adorable. Hope you enjoy this idea as much as my kids did.  Random tip, my stores always tend to sell out of pretzel rods around the Holidays so don’t wait to pick yours up… I normally buy the store brand when they go on sale for a dollar a bag.

What you need to make your own Turkey Pretzel Pops

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Reese’s Pieces, orange and yellows, cut in half
  • Chocolate Chips, or candy melts
  • Candy corn, assorted
  • Candy Pearls or Candy Eyes
  • Chocolate Rice Cereal

Instructions

Break Pretzel Rods in half. Melt Chocolate in microwave, 30 seconds and stir, 15 second increments stirring after each until melted and smooth, let sit at least 5 minutes to set up just a little to make it easier to work with. On a piece of wax paper lay out 3 candy corns in a fan shape with the pointy side in. Using a spoon cover a Pretzel Rod with Chocolate. Leave a little extra on the top back part to stick to the candy corn. Lay the Chocolate covered pretzel over the Candy Corn so they stick out the tops. Apply 2 Pearls for eyes at the top end by the Candy Corn. You may need to hold them for a few seconds so they set. Using a toothpick, dab it in the Chocolate and gently apply a dot to each pearl. Place a half piece of a Reese’s pieces under the Pearls for the beak. Coat with cereal for the feathers. Let cool and set at least 30 minutes. Gently remove from wax paper and store in airtight container in cool place.

Fall flower vase made out of a tin can and jute twine, made the whole thing for under a dollar. Fall Craft ideas, great for Super saturday projects #DIY, #CraftsFall colors are simply stunning, my girls have been busy picking fall leaves and bringing them inside. They wanted  to make a fall bouquet to put on the kitchen table.  We decided to make a twine vase to display the leaves that they just picked outside.  A twine vase can be made rather fast, and is budget friendly way to decorate.Fall flower vase made out of a tin can and jute twine, made the whole thing for under a dollar. Fall Craft ideas, great for Super saturday projects #DIY, #CraftsTo make a twine vase all you need is:

Wash the can and dry it well.  Add a bit of hot glue to the bottom  side of the can, start to wrap the twine around the can.  Glue as you go, make sure the twine is close together so the can does not show thru.  Do this all the way to the top, cut the end and tuck it under the last row. Fill with some water and add branches from your yard for a fall centerpiece that  is rather elegant.  Made for less than a dollar, these would be great to make for a dinner party or other events that need decorated on a budget.
