Turkey Candy Holder~Thanksgiving Decoration

This adorable, little turkey is just the right size to fill up with some candy and give as a gift, or use it as a Thanksgiving decoration in your own home or workplace.

Turkeys aren’t normally the cutest animal alive, but this one sure is a cutie!

You will need:

A small Terracotta pot

Scrapbook paper scraps

Googly eyes

Yellow or orange ribbon or scrapbook paper for feet

Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks

Candy to fill the pot

Begin by cutting a 2 inch circle out of brown card stock or construction paper.  Glue to the front of your pot.  Add the googly eyes.  Cut a small, orange triangle out and glue it on for the beak.  For the wattle (I think that is what that little red thing is called by his beak) I just cut a shape that resembled a letter p.  I just eye balled it and it is far from perfect, but looked cute to me!

Once I had my little turkey’s face done, I began on his feathers.  I grabbed a few scraps of fall colored paper.  These don’t need to be big at all, maybe 4 inches in length (depending on how tall you want your feathers) and 2-3 inches in width.  I drew myself a pattern to use and traced on the back of each piece of paper so that the pen marks wouldn’t show.  Hot glue those in to place.  You might want to hold them on and see which way you like them first.  Once you glue them on, getting them off isn’t pretty!

The pot seemed rather bare to me on the bottom.  I chose to add feet out of dark yellow ribbon I had on hand.  Cut 4 small strips. For this size pot I made mine about an inch long.  Hot glue them on where you want them.

Fill your turkey with candy, nuts, whatever treat sounds good to you!

Tootsie Pop Turkey~ Easy Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is a great snack to send with the kids to school for holiday parties.  They are easy, inexpensive and super quick to put together!

You will need:

Tootsie pop suckers

Hershey kisses

Small amount of red felt

Small amount of brown felt

Googly eyes

Hot glue gun and glue

These little turkeys are super easy to put together.  Glue the eyes on with hot glue.  Remove the white banner that says “Hershey kisses” on it from your kiss.   Attach the Hershey kiss with a very small amount of hot glue to your lollipop .  You don’t want a lot or it will melt the chocolate.  Cut a small triangle out of your brown felt to go over the top of your Hershey kiss for the beak, and cut out a small red strip to glue beside the beak.

That is it!  If you want to give your turkey feathers, you could probably attach them to the back, but I enjoyed the simplicity of this little guy the way he was. My kids’ school won’t let them have anything that is not store bought.  I love that I can make something like this, and still feel like it is something fun and personal that the kids will enjoy.  Not to mention this time of year, who has time to spend hours in the kitchen baking when we already have so much we are trying to do?!
