Who doesn’t love a great Dollar Tree craft just in time for the holidays? We are back for another month of creative and adorable Thanksgiving Crafts with the Dollar Store Divas. You can see all four Thanksgiving projects at the bottom of this post.
Crafting With Dollar Store Items
Creating new, exciting crafts for the holidays is always so much fun. Finding everything you need for holiday crafting at the dollar tree is always a delight. The supplies at the dollar store sure have come a long way. There is also rumor that they are expanding their craft section to include more crafting items and bare wood pieces too. I am looking forward to that.

DIY Mini Dollar Tree Turkey Candy Cups
- Mini Glass Sauce Dishes
- Red & Yellow Silk Flowers (ones with long skinny petals work best)
- Brown & Red Felt
- Gold Chenille Stems
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
- Candy for filling
How To Assemble Your Dollar Tree Turkey Candy Dish
Before you start putting together your turkey candy dish, you will need to separate the flower petals. This is usually pretty easy with the dollar tree silk flowers. Just pop the flower head off the stem, pull the back green piece off, and separate the petals. You won’t need the center of the flower, or the back green plastic piece.
Do this to both the red and the yellow flowers. You are going to use one later of petals for each turkey candy dish.
Place the yellow petals on top of the red and line them up evenly. Cut the petals in half horizontally.
Glue the petals to the back rim of the mini glass dish. Glue the yellow petals first, then the red petals behind the yellow ones.
From the brown felt, cut out a peanut shape. about 2 1/2 inches long. Hot glue a small red triangle, and add two black dots for eyes with a black marker. Glue the brown felt to the front of the glass dish.
Wrap a small piece of the chenille stem around the end of the longer piece to make the feet. Attach the chenille stem to the back of the brown felt with hot glue. If you attach it directly to the glass the legs will pop off very quickly. Hot glue and glass do not get along.
Fill your adorable DIY Dollar Tree Turkey with your favorite fall candy or treats. Use them as a place card or in your table setting for Thanksgiving dinner. However you use them, they are sure to be a big hit.
