Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Buckets

What you'll need:

  • Brown, Orange, or Gold Metal Pails
  • Tacky Glue or Low-Temp Glue Gun
  • Large Googly Eyes
  • Adhesive Craft Foam (orange & red)
  • Assorted Turkey Feathers


  1. Run a line of Tacky Glue along the top outside edge of the bucket and attach 4-6 feathers to the glue. Allow the glue to dry. (Note: older children can speed up this process by using a low-temperature glue gun instead of Tacky Glue).     
  2. Put one sheet of tissue paper in the bottom of the can to take up some space.
  3. Place two large adhesive googly eyes to the front of the bucket, and cut a beak and snood from the adhesive craft foam.
  4. Fill tin with your favorite sweet or candy.
  5. You could also add a name tag to make cute Thanksgiving place cards! Also, you could put on the center of the dining table/kids table and your guests would have a yummy/cute party favor to take home.
