Holiday Crafts > Thanksgiving

Cute and easy Turkey favor cup to put nuts, mints or other candies at places for Thanksgiving dinner.  Great as a party treat for kids party.  These little turkeys are made from a toilet paper tube and paint ... wallah!  what a cute an inexpensive family craft.


  • Paper tube (paper towel or t paper tube)
  • Non-toxic paints
  • Brush
  • Scissors
  • Masking Tape
  • Black marker
  • Cardboard or paper tube to cut out head/ gobbler
  • Thin cardboard (cardstock or discarded file folder)
What To Do:
  1. Consult cutting diagram.  Start with a t paper tube or a 4 1/2" section of paper towel tube.  Cut a lengthwise slit down the tube, right to center.  Then start cutting "around" the center, on each side of slit, leaving a little more than 1inch intact, where the body joins the feathers in back.
  2. Trim off a tiny bit to make a nice curve to feathers, then cut slits to make individual feathers.
  3. From cardboard, or a piece of tube folded in half, draw head of turkey and gobbler.  Cut out.  If you used a folded tube, tape two sides together to make head flat.  Cut a small slit, as indicated, in the bottom of the neck, where head will attach to body.
  4. To make insert for bottom, cut a 3" circle and then make 1" slits towards center, about a ahlf inch apart.  Bend edges upward and then slide inside tube body.  Attach with masking tape.
  5. Paint entire body/feathers one solid color... we chose a rusty brown.  Let dry and then paint feathers and head /gobbler. Let dry.
  6. Tape or glue gobbler on to head and then slide head into place on body.
  7. Make eyes with marker.
