Turkey Party Favors

These party favors are really easy to make once you find all of the craft supplies. I went to Joanne Fabrics and Michael's to find everything I needed.

You will need:

Brown Tulle
Brown Pipe Cleaners
Red Felt
Fall Themed m&m's

If you want to make these with your kids on Thanksgiving morning or the day before Thanksgiving - buy all of the craft supplies and Fall themed candy at least a week before Thanksgiving. Trust me - you will not be able to find what you need when you are stressed out the day before Thanksgiving.

Isn't this cute! And so easy to make!  You could use candy corn or nuts instead of the m&m's.

Cut the tulle into a six inch square. The easiest way to do this is to cut a thick piece of cardboard into a six inch square and use it as a pattern. Then place two tablespoons of candies or nuts in the center of the tulle.

Gather the tulle at the top and twist the pipe cleaner around the top several times. Then bend the top of the pipe cleaner into a head shape and add the piece of red felt for the waddle with a dab of glue.

These would look cute on the dessert table or lined up down the center of the Thanksgiving table.  I also think they would be a fun classroom or sports team treat.

Gobble. Gobble.
