Turkey Treat Boxes




 




For Easter I made these bunny treat boxes . It went on to be one of my most popular posts this year.   I thought it might be fun to try and make some more treat boxes with a Thanksgiving theme, and that is how turkey treat boxes were born.




I found some more boxes at my local Dollar Tree. I also used pipe cleaners, craft foam and google eyes.  It would work best to use a glue gun to attach the tail and head, but unfortunately my glue gun is still M.I.A.  I think I might have to break down and buy a new one, so my old one will show up.   After trying a few ways to attach the tail, I found it easiest to attach it as one piece.  I started by using half a length of each color pipe cleaner. I then folded the halves in half and wrapped the ends together.  


I pulled all the loops together and twisted the bottom.


I then attached the tail to the end of one box


and to the top of the other.   I go back and forth on which way I like it best. 



The make the bodies I cut out a peanut shape out of brown craft foam.  I added google eyes and small pieces of yellow and red craft foam to finish their faces. 



I filled them with autumn mix candy corn and they are ready for the Thanksgiving table, or class party.

  10. So cute! I always send a little treat to my boys' classmates at preschool on holidays. This is perfect for TG and Easter. Thanks for sharing!

    P.S. I always lose things, replace them only to have them turn up the next day. Hate that!

  20. Such a cute way to upcycle! The kids would love this, but I am not sure the candy corn would last longer than ten minutes.
    I host a weekly upcycling party and would love it if you linked this project up. http://tinyurl.com/upcycled71
