Bugle Cornucopias and a Thanksgiving Printable


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.

Ok… now I’m beginning to think you won stock in Bugles… Or it because they come in HUGE bags and are so darn addicting? cute and wonderful as always!

Turkey is totally overrated anyway. Pass the runts.

November 21, 2011 1:05 am

This is awesome. How come I never think of cool things like this? I need to get me some 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.

November 21, 2011 2:09 pm

Adorable, I think those are better than a turkey any day.

November 21, 2011 3:06 pm

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.
