Here’s a great Thanksgiving Candy Bags Favor Craft with Printable included!
What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Do you travel or host? Do you have multiple Thanksgivings because of both sides of the family? This year we are traveling to Michigan to see my dad for Thanksgiving as well as my husband’s side of the family.
So I will be cooking at my dad’s house and eating at my grandma-in-law’s. Wait! I will be eating at both places (of course!) but thankfully one will be on Thursday and one will be on Friday.
Two big fattening meals in two days. Oh, joy! I have been dieting all month for these two days!
There are plenty of little kids around and while they may pick at the pie they will gobble down Reese’s pieces or M&M’s.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Thanksgiving printable
- 1″ x 8″ bags (I bought mine on Ebay -just search “1” x 8″ bags”)
- Reese’s Pieces or M&M’s
- Glue Dots or double-sided adhesive
- Scissors or a Fiskars Scalloped Punch
How To Make the Candy Bag Favors:
Print out the Thanksgiving printable bag topper on white cardstock.
I printed it wirelessly to my Canon PIXMA printer but if you don’t have a wireless printer, let me tell you – it is the nuts!
Using a hole punch (I used a scalloped punch) or scissors cut out the circles.
Fill up the skinny bags with the candy. You can fit about 28-30 candies in there. Seal the bag.
Using a glue dot or double-sided adhesive adhere the printed and cut circle to the bag.
Find something cute to display them in to give to your Thanksgiving guests. (font for pail: Cinnamon Cake)
You could also use these to top cupcakes or to seal a hostess gift.
