With some basic crafting supplies, you can easily put together a Turkey Candy Dish that would put some fun and color into your Thanksgiving get together. I was looking for my supplies for another craft when I came across the plastic bowls that I recently bought at the dollar store. You can find them in the dish aisle four for a dollar.
I used three and a half brown pipe cleaners to make the head. I started by folding one in half. I then took the second one and wrapped it around the second one. I then did the same with the third one. I used the half of pipe cleaner to secure it where the neck would be. I then trimmed the pipe cleaners so they were all the same size.
I used hot glue to add google eyes, beak and snood. (and yes, I had to look it up!) I used craft foam or the beak, but you can use felt, paper, or anything else you prefer. I used red for the snood, mainly because I currently do not have red craft foam.
I then used hot glue to add the head to the front of the dish, and feathers to the back. I found the a pack of the perfect Thanksgiving feathers at Michaels. I then filled the dish with some pumpkin mallows that I bought last month.
I will be linking up my Turkey Candy Dish at the fabulous linky parties on my linky party page. You can see the full list here.
