Turkey Treat Bags


Tulle (Use rectangle tulle from a roll or tulle pre-cut circles)

Pipe cleaners (red, tan, orange and yellow)

Reese Pieces (or your favorite mix of candies in fall colors!)

Googly eyes

Glue (hot glue or another strong glue)


Small clear hair elastics

Optional: clear treat bags or sandwich bags


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.

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.
