Candy Turkey Necklaces


Step by step directions to make Candy Turkey Necklaces.


It's time for another turkey craft! 
I don't know why crafting up turkeys are so much fun?  Could it be because they're so silly looking?  It may have something to do with their crazy wattle?  Or their weird shape?  Or all their feathers?  Who knows? 
These little candy turkeys can be worn as necklaces, or just sitting at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table.  They're very similar to the bat necklaces I made for Halloween. Remember?

Using a Cropodile tool, punch a hole over the dot. (This is my favorite crafting tool, ever! It punches holes through anything!Using ribbon, string or black cording, measure out about 30-33 inches.
Thread both ends into the hole of the lid, and tie a knot.
Tie a few knots to keep the cording from pulling through. I tied three knots right on top of each other.
Trim the ends.
