Twenty Turkeys {and a tutorial}

Good day, blog friends!

Doug and I are hosting Thanksgiving dinner for my family {so excited that everyone is coming!!!} next week so we were busy around here this past weekend! While Doug was busy outside, I was inside with paper and glue {thanks for painting the patio lid, Doug!}.


I've made these turkey table favors before and have used different tail styles, but this time I wanted to use silk leaves from a garland I purchased at my local craft store. These little guys are super easy to make and I can sum up how they're done with just a few photos. {And while I am so fortunate to have the right tools, these are still doable without fancy punches! Just trace some shapes, cut by hand and glue.}


2 circles {one small, one large}
1/2 small red heart
1 larger heart for his feet
2 googly eyes
1 small triangle {cut by hand}
1 peppermint patty
1 leaf
1 pop-dot 
glue

Hey, you!
Count your blessings.

too cute! I used this one last year for napkin rings and everyone loved it. I'm not hosting this year. Wondering will everyone dismantle them to get to the candy?

Brilliant! They are so effective! I think I might try something similar for Christmas because I love the idea of the chocolate being a part of it.

Oh, Deb - these are SO cute! I'd be unwrapping oh so carefully to keep the turkey intact but still let me at the sweet treat... ;)

So very cute!
Have fun hosting!
We have not agreed on some plans yet...our siblings have so many children and spouses (spice? haha) there homes fill up quickly.
And with parents gone :/ NO FUN.
I don't like Tday and Christmas without my parents.
