Turkey and Pumpkin Candy Holder Craft

This Fall, try these pumpkin and turkey candy holders as a little treat for kids or co-workers. The pumpkin candy holder is fast and easy to create. And the turkey candy holder is perfect for handing out on Thanksgiving day as a fun surprise! In the tutorial below, I will show you how easy it is to make these candy holders with Cricut for Thanksgiving. Both my pumpkin and turkey candy holder SVG templates are available in the Abbi Kirsten Member Vault!

Here is a quick look at the pumpkin candy holder as well. The pumpkin is even faster to make than the turkey candy holder design!

My favorite part about these Thanksgiving candy holders is how easy it is to peel the back off to access the candy or gift inside. The recipient can enjoy the cute fall-themed gift long after the candy gift is gone! The SVG files are already set up to cut with the perforated back, so you don’t have to have the perforation tool to enjoy this project.

DIY Thanksgiving Candy Holders With Cricut

Import the files into Design Space. I used my Cricut machine for cutting the SVG templates. If you are new to Cricut, read my tutorial on uploading an SVG file to Design Space.

If you wish to change the size of your Thanksgiving candy holder, then at this point, you will need to scale the files as a group – this is important to keep proportions correct. See how I do it here in the video. My circle cut out in the center measures 3.125 x 3.125 inches which fits my plastic ornament balls.

Once you have cut out all layers in your choice colors of cardstock, add on the details of the turkey and pumpkin with glue.

Flip over the top piece and add foam tabs along the back of the layer with the hole.

Fill your plastic ball with candy and place it down on the solid base piece.

Place the top piece with the hole cut out over the plastic ball. Press it well together, so the foam tape really grabs. If you struggle to get your plastic ornament ball to stay put, try using some hot glue around the edges. And the pumpkin candy holder is made the same way!

And that’s it! Make several, hand them to family or friends, and watch their faces light up!
