Pipe Cleaner Turkey For a Treat Holder and Thanksgiving Craft

Sharing is caring!

This turkey is so super cute, and easy to do. My six year old had absolutely no problem doing one all by herself! I love that this turkey holds little bags of treats (popcorn, candy,¬† craft kit, etc…) in the middle. Wouldn’t that be adorable on a kid’s Thanksgiving table? You could even put a place card instead of treats in the middle of this turkey! Here’s how you can make this turkey!

You’ll Need: For Each One

  • 10 (12 in. long) pipe cleaners/chenille strips – you can add 2-4 more for fullness, just make sure that you can still twist them together
  • 2 Google eyes
  • A little orange triangle cut from felt or material for the beak
  • Red Rick-Rack for the gobble – Substitute anything red here!

Now:

  • Stack the pipe cleaners together making sure they are all even at the top, and bottom
