Thanksgiving Treat Cups
The really awesome thing with these treat cups is that you can make them out of just about anything. Here, I’ve used biodegradable pots from our gardening stash. Plastic drink cups came from the cupboard and the tiny snack cups are from my craft stash. All were on hand for me, but you can easily find them at your local big box store or grocery.
To make your own:
- plastic snack cups, biodegradable pots, terra cotta pots, re-purposed jars
- silk leaves, assorted colors
- brown craft felt
- fall floral sprays with berries (choose a spray with red leaves)
- “Grateful for you!” printable template
- hole punch
- circle punch
- treat bags
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- TREATS! (I used M&Ms, candy corn, candy pumpkins, orange gummy slices
- hot glue silk leaves to the cup, arranging leaves following the curve of the cup.
- cut brown craft felt in the shape of spoon, about 2-inches long.
- for the eyes, use berries from the fall floral spray. glue to the brown felt you just cut.
- cut a wattle from the red leaves of the fall floral spray. glue to the brown felt under the eyes.
- attach the felt turkey to the plastic cup with some hot glue.
- tie (2) 12 inch pieces of twine into a bow and hot glue to the turkey’s neck.
- fill the Thanksgiving treat cups with TASTY treats!

Sweet & Salty Turkey Snack Cups
Fill small snack cups with a sweet & salty snack for guests to munch on while they wait for the turkey. I love this sweet and spicy cajun mix from Ozark Country Market.
So that’s it! Easy peasy Thanksgiving treat cups make a great kid’s activity, too! Be sure to PIN THIS so you can refer back to it on Wednesday night when you’re scrambling to set the table. Ha!
