Turkey Treat Bags

Turkey Treat Bags

    I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is this week already! Since we are going to my sister’s house on Thanksgiving Day, I am excited that I got out of cooking this year. I do, however, want to bring some treats for all the kids so I made these Turkey Treat Bags for all of them. They were really easy and inexpensive to make and I hope you enjoy making them for your family as much as I enjoyed making them for mine!

Turkey Treat Bags

  • Googly eyes
  • Glue (hot glue or another strong glue)
  • Scissors
  • Small clear hair elastics

Turkey Treat Bags


  1. Place candies in the middle of your tulle. {Tulle from a roll may be used (cut to 16”) or precut tulle circles.} Secure the tulle closed with a clear hair elastic. Leave the excess tulle on the back to create “feathers”
    Optional: if you want extra protection for the candy, use a clear bag to place the treats in and then place the tulle over the top.
  2. To form the turkey head, simply cut a tan pipe cleaner in half (approximately 6”). Start at one end, and roll the pipe cleaner until about 2 inches are left at the end.
  3. Cut a 1” piece from an orange pipe cleaner and slide it through the outer coil of the tan pipe cleaner. Push the ends together to form a beak, and twist slightly so it stays together.
  4. Cut a 2” piece from a red pipe cleaner. Simply wrap it over the top of the beak (facing down) and twist to create the wattle.
  5. Glue the eyes onto the sides of the tan rolled pipe cleaner.
  6. Cut a 6” piece from a yellow pipe cleaner. From the end into a “W” shape and bend the straight leftover end to form the leg/foot.
  7. Lay the treat bag down (rubber band/excess tulle or “feathers” in the back) and press the head through the top and legs through the bottom/front of the tulle.
