Bugle Cornucopias and a Thanksgiving Printable

funsweets

I haven’t bought my turkey yet…is that bad?

Actually, I have bought none of the required Thanksgiving Day foods.  There is nary a sweet potato to be found at my home.

I do, however, have plenty of Runts…and Pop Tarts…and Hot Pockets.  Do you think I could get away with serving those for Thanksgiving dinner?

 

Tomorrow when I food shop I am sure that I will get stuck buying a frozen turkey that I will stress out about until the moment of preparation.  Who knew that turkeys take like a WEEK to thaw out!  Geez.  I mean, whenever we have parties here at the house we go crazy buying ice for the coolers which inevitably melts in a few hours.  I think next time I’ll just buy a frozen turkey…dude, cold drinks for days!

Away, I haven’t bought a turkey… but I have made Bugle Cornucopia treat bags.  Prioritizing is not where I excel.

 

So, if you are interested in not buying turkeys and making fun treats, let’s talk.

A few weeks ago I was reminded by THIS girl that I had failed to produce a Bugle Thanksgiving treat…I don’t know how I let that slip through the cracks, but I knew I needed to get on it.

I decided on a deconstructed cornucopia, because that meant I could use Runts…and well, whenever there’s an opportunity to use Runts I ‘m all over it 🙂

Bugle Cornucopias and a Thanksgiving Printable

Here’s what you need…

Runts, Bugles, treat bags, a stapler, scissors and some double sided tape.

The treat bags I used were 4×9 in size.  I trimmed them down about 3 inches, so they weren’t quite as long.

I filled the bags with a handful of both Bugles and Runts, folded over the bag and stapled closed.

Then I made some cute printables that I cut out and folded in half.

I attached the printable with double sided tape and that’s it!

Again here’s the link to the Printable

 

Now I have no excuse.  MUST. BUY. TURKEY.

Turkey is totally overrated anyway. Pass the runts.

Have you ever made the treat with bugles, frosting, and fruit-shape flavored Trix? We always used to make those for my school treats growing up, but we haven’t found the fruit-shaped Trix in years. Regardless, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!! :]

Great Thanksgiving give-away! I miss eating the cornets. That’s my favorite way back years ago. These days i couldn’t find anymore the brand that I’ve craved for.

I am not a big fan of Thanksgiving dinner, I don’t eat turkey and I hate anything pumpkin.
What a fun idea Shelly this goody bags are. Perfect for Camilla’s school party on Wednesday. Some how I can’t get the printables, I think the link is not working, or maybe is me that I am going insane LOL.

Just made these for Thanksgiving table settings. I added Jolly Rancher Bites(slightly sour, fruit shapes), candy corn, and Planters salted Caramel peanuts to the mix. Tied with a ribbon or raffia and a “So Grateful for You” tag. These are cute and easy!
