Turkey can appear on your Thanksgiving table in more ways than one! These sweet little chocolate turkeys use large and small peanut butter cups, candy corn and candy eyes and are guaranteed to put smiles on your guests faces this holiday season.

5. Apple and Pear Place Cards

6. Jelly Bean Pumpkins

Tiny turkeys aren’t the only thing you can fill with candies for a festive table favor. Fill orange tulle with mini orange jelly beans or other orange candy to make a whole patch of deliciously delightful pumpkins this Thanksgiving.

7. Candy Corn Husks

I’ll spare you all my corny jokes and just say that these DIY candy-filled corn husks will bring some seasonal splendor to your Thanksgiving table this year.

8. Turkey Cookie Place Cards

Another crafty project to use cookies at your Thanksgiving table is to turn them into place cards! The kids can even get in on this project as well, since their little hands make the perfect turkey shaped cookie cut outs!

9. Caramel Apple Table Favors

Caramel apples are synonymous with Fall so it’s only natural that they make a fun DIY favor for your Thanksgiving table! There’s so much you can do with these as well; roll in chopped nuts, wrap in cellophane or use a rustic twig as the stick. You can even attach name tags and use them as delicious place cards for your table.

10. Mason Jar Spiced Nuts

For a savory Thanksgiving favor option, consider making a batch of delicious spiced nuts and portion into mini mason jars that each guest can take home with them. If you have more of a sweet tooth, consider making some pumpkin pie spiced pecans instead!

11. Pomegranate Place Settings

The pomegranate is such a pretty fruit to look at, and that crimson color just screams Fall. This place setting idea couldn’t be more simple, yet it looks so pretty. Simply write the names of your Thanksgiving guests on a pomegranate in gold pen and use as a place setting name card. Since you peel off the skin before eating, your guests will still be able to take their personalized fruits home and enjoy them later!
