 This little Turkey Tootsie Pop Holder makes a fun addition to your Thanksgiving table! Use it as a candy favor for the young ones or a napkin holder for the adults. You probably have the felt and eyes already in your craft supplies so the cost is very inexpensive for this darling turkey! It doesn’t take very long to make. If using as a Thanksgiving craft, cut out the pieces and let the kids put them together!
