Make Turkey Treats for friends and family. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea for Thanksgiving dinner or a fun kids craft to keep the kids busy.
Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away and I am so excited to get together with my family. We always have a wild, crazy and LOUD time.
On my side of the family, there are 46 people! This year we can’t ALL get together but we are still going to have lots of fun. I decided I needed to lock my spot in as the favorite Aunt and make these cute little Turkey Treats.
Most products used are Stampin’ Up! products that have since been discontinued. I will try my best to link to similar products found online that are available to purchase, but I am sure this could be modified to be used with other products as well. I cannot find similar Plastic Treat Cups for card making, but I bet you could get these Clear Plastic Sample Cups to work in a similar way.

How to Make Paper Turkey Treats
I made 34 turkeys but you will only need the following pieces for one turkey treat.
- 1 Brown Scallop Circle 4 1/4″
- 1 Orange Scallop Circle 3 1/4″
- 1 Yellow Scallop Circle 1 3/4″
- 1 Brown Ring punched from the 2 1/2″ circle punch and then the center was punched out using the 1 3/4″
- 1 Orange Banner cut in half
The yellow beaks were cut by hand and then arranged on the faces with the googly eyes. My pile of heads! LOL!
The feet are made by cutting the banner flag in half.
Glued the feet to the bottom of the large brown scallop circle.
Then, glue the orange scallop circle close to the top of the other because you want the orange to show behind the head.
Fill the Sweet Treat Cups with Reese’s Pieces because the colors match so perfectly.
Remove the sticky backing and applied to the yellow scallop circle.
This is where the brown ring comes in and covers the edges of the cups.
Glue the yellow scallop circle to the lower part of the turkey making sure to cover where you glued the feet on.
Then the final part, the head. Isn’t he cute?!
I ended up making 34!
I have my own little Turkey Farm!
