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!

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

I want to make these for a class of 24- do you think 1lb of runts are enough? I’m ordering online because I can’t find them around me and don’t wanna screw up and order too much, or too little.
I would say that you would need 3-ish ounces per kid. A pound is 16 ounces so I would probably buy 5 pounds? You can certainly put in less candy, but that’s just a starting point!
I can’t find bugles in the store. Where did you get them?
I can always find them at Walmart!
These are so cute! I printed out the labels, but mine were so big. Where did you find the smaller ones. Thanks
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!
Oh these are so fun! My kids are definitely making these next week when they have ALL WEEK off school! love it! Thank you!
