Hershey's® Kisses Flowers or Acorns
Use pink or red cellophane for roses. Browns and golds for acorns, or clear with the holiday kisses that are wrapped in colored foil.
This little turkey could be used as a party favor or just a small gift.
Hot glue the walnut to the heart, with the pointed ends of each going the same way
(this is the tail of the turkey). Cut the chenille stem just so it will make a ‘U' around
the nut and folding about 3/8 inch of each end to form the feet. Glue the hazelnut on top
for the head, cut a wattle and beak as shown in the picture. Glue the leaf on the back for
Tootsie Pop Turkey
Twist ends of each of the 4-inch pieces of chenille stems together to form 5 separate loops.
(2 red, 2 yellow, 1 green).
Hot glue them to Tootsie pop, as in picture.
Glue pompom to top as shown, then glue on wiggle eyes.
Bend the yellow piece of stem into a ‘u' shape and glue it on for beak.

Cut out all pieces of felt as shown on pattern pieces for color and how many. Cut incision on bck body piece as shown on pattern for insertion of candy.
Attach front and back body pieces together (either sewing or gluing), leaving entire bottom edge open. Attach feet to bottom front edge, pointing outward as in diagram. Now attach bottom piece, glue or sew all the way around (leave no openings).
Tail pieces are best glued on as this gives the tail some stiffness to stand up. Glue front tail section to back tail section by applying glue liberally, then set under a book or something heavy so it will dry flat. When dry attach tail section to bottom back section of the turkey at bottom edge only. Let dry.
Lay turkey on back to work on face and front. Looking at the placement chart, glue red waddle, beak, eyes, and wings where indicated.
Fill with mints or bag of candy through slit in back. This will make the turkey stand up.
Light bulb Turkey
Burned-out light bulb
Wooden heart- 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches wide
Golf tee or 3/16-inch wooden dowel and a pencil sharpener
Fall print material - 1/4 yard or scraps of at least 5 different prints
Stiff interfacing or felt - 1/2 yard
Plastic curtain ring - 1-inch
Fall colored button - 1/2-inch or less
Acrylic paints - brown, black, orange, red, and white
If wooden dowel is used for beak, cut off a 4-inch length and sharpen end to a dull point. Paint orange, when dry cut off
1/2-inch for the beak.
Glue the curtain ring to the top of the bulb, so the turkey will have a base to glue to the feet. Paint bulb and ring brown. Let dry. Paint screw-in base and the wooden heart black. Let dry.
Using face pattern, paint face and let dry.
For the feathers and wings, I fused the material to felt ( I used gold because it blended in with the material) and then cut them out. This gave the stiffness I wanted without much fuss!
Glue the vest, wings and feathers to the bulb following the picture placement. Pull the hat brim on, glue on a button at the front of the vest overlap, and then glue on the beak. Glue to wooden heart for feet and stand.

Patterns for tag poem (these work best printed on cardstock) 1 tag, 10 tags on a sheet
I have made patterns for 3-ounce and 4-ounce size plastic cups. Just depends on what you can find in your area.
The 4-ounce is the "normal" bathroom size cup.
Cut out cup covers and top covers from felt for each cup you are going to make (black for boy hat, white for girl hat). Cut 1 bonnet piece from out of white felt for each girl. Using the bottom of the cup (really the top--the open end), trace on white foam a bottom for the girl hat. Cut 1 brim from foam for each boy hat. Glue covers and top covers onto cups (I use regular glue stick for this part as it is easier).
