Products Used To Make This Project
- True White Glass Craft Mat – save 20% storewide using my code KPECKS20
- Thanksgiving Candy Dome SVG
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore
- Cricut Tool Set
- Double Sided Foam Tape
- Dome Ornament
- Rhinestone Picker Tool
- Googly Eyes
- Liquid Adhesive
All pieces were cut on the Cricut Maker. Get your pieces cut out and assemble as follows.
Here is an instructional video.
Before placing the dome ornament on top of the dark brown turkey piece, add your candy to it. Put the dark brown piece over the top of the candy dome ornament and flip, so the candy stays inside the dome. I used hard candy to show that these can be safe for people with allergies. You can also use miniature candy.
Place the ornament hanger part to the bottom right so it’s not visible. Add the light brown piece so so you can figure out the placement of the dome ornament.
Remove the light brown piece and place the double sided foam tape around the edge of the dome ornament. Do not put double sided foam tape on the plastic piece that sticks out. The double sided foam tape will offset that plastic piece.
Add double sided foam tape to the head and at the very top. Also add the double sided foam tape where the wings will be. (Use the light brown piece as your guide.)
Remove top pieces of the foam tape to expose the stickiness. Place the light brown piece on top of the foam tape and press down for good adhesion. Add the larger red piece to the top of the head. Then put the nose and the black eyes on. The next thing you will do is add the waddle just above the turkey’s nose.
Last you will put on the googly eyes using liquid adhesive and the rhinestone picker tool.
You are done!!!

This is so adorable. I’m going to save this and make it for next year seeing how my Cricut is somewhere in a box in the storage unit.
Have fun!!! I know what it’s like to have your craft stuff in storage.
