Easy M&M Candy Turkey Treats

How cute! M&M Turkey Treats
I found this cute tutorial here at The Party Animal Blog
M&Ms of course –  Fall Color Mix of regular and added in a small amount of Peanut M&Ms in too.
Brown Netting (Tulle)
Pipe Cleaners – Fall Colors – Brown, Orange, Red & Yellow
Goggle Eyes
Glue Dots
Small Rubber Bands

The first step is creating your Turkey Head. For this you will need a Brown, Orange & Red Pipe Cleaner. I love playing with Pipe Cleaners they are so easy to work with and if you make a mistake you just bend it back. So starting with the Brown – Cut it in 1/2.  Roll the top edge down a bit for the head. Then take your Orange and feed through the head and bend and cut off excess. Fold up and form your Beak. Then taking the red do the same above the beak, but leave a piece sticking down for the Snood and Cut. That is it.

Then take your Brown Pipe Cleaner Body and fold up on more time so it is double and give it a twist. Now take your Glue Dots and add on your Google Eyes. Set aside. Next it is time to create Turkey Feet. Take a Yellow Pipe Cleaner and start by folding up some Toes – make 3 of them. You can some of the excess Leg off the top so you have maybe 3 inches left. Set aside.
Now cut some 12″ x 12″ Squares from your Netting(tulle). Measure out about 1/2 Cup of your M&Ms for the middle. Place in and close with your Rubber Band.
Assemble Time !!! Cut off the excess Netting leaving enough to resemble your Turkey Tail Feathers. Then just stick your Turkey Body into the netting on the front. No Glue Needed – it will stay there. Then stick in your Turkey Feet the same way and you are done !!! How Simple is that?
