These cute Thanksgiving turkey snack buckets are a variation of our popular Thanksgiving turkey wind sock craft and are popular with “kids” of all ages! From preschoolers to adults, anyone can enjoy the fun of making this cute Thanksgiving food with just a few minutes and a few supplies!

I bought all my supplies from Oriental Trading Company and I have always been impressed by the quality of their high-quality craft supplies, especially because their prices are so reasonable!




  • Brown 3″ Metal Pails
  • Assorted Turkey Feathers
  • Adhesive Craft Foam
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tacky Glue or Low-Temp Glue Gun

And don’t forget to pick up a few sweet treats to fill the buckets- we used Fall Hershey’s Kisses, Orange Foil-Wrapped Caramels, and Candy Corn!

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).

Glue two large googly eyes to the front of the bucket, and cut a beak and snood from the adhesive craft foam.

Fill the turkey treat buckets with your favorite sweets and candies.

You could also add a name tag to make cute Thanksgiving place cards!

These cute turkey treat buckets also look great in the center of your dining table as part of your Thanksgiving centerpiece decor, and guests can take home a yummy party favor at the end of the evening.

These Thanksgiving turkey treat buckets are a surefire hit for all ages!
