Good morning! Today I have some fun printables to share with you – turkey cupcake toppers! Cupcakes are great any time of year and Thanksgiving is no exception! With some cute turkeys, your cupcakes will be all ready for the holiday!
I had a lot of fun creating these cute little turkeys. I drew the turkeys in pen on paper and then scanned them into Photoshop and digitally colored them. I made them to go with my Thanksgiving placemats, which have black in them. I normally wouldn’t think about using black in my Thanksgiving decor, but I actually love how it offsets the golds, reds, and oranges I traditionally use for Thanksgiving!
I’m using these cute little turkeys a few different ways this year. The first is for cupcake toppers! We aren’t having cupcakes on Thanksgiving, too many other desserts happening, but these are perfect for topping my treats leading up to the holiday. They would also be great in a slice of pie! You can download the free printables at the end of this post!
The turkey cupcake toppers are printed four to a page and designed so the turkey will appear on both sides of the toothpick topper. I cut around the turkeys by hand, leaving white paper around the feathers. Before cutting around the feathers, I folded my turkey topper in half and then cut through both layers around the feathers at the same time. Simply glue them together with a toothpick placed in-between and you are all set! I used hot glue because it was so quick and I liked the thickness it gave the toppers. I found they were less flimsy than when I used a glue stick.
I decided to create a matching cupcake wrapper. You can print these, too. They come two on a page. Cut them out and tape them together in the back. I’m not sure I am the biggest fan of cupcake wrappers since they make grabbing the cupcake a little harder, in my opinion, but they really jazz things up and make the cupcakes look extra cute. I especially love the idea of the cupcake wrappers if a cupcake is placed at each table setting or the cupcakes are on display.
So there you have it! You can download my free turkey toppers and Thanksgiving cupcake wrappers. They definitelly would add a nice festive touch to any homemade or store-bought cupcakes! Hope everyone has a nice weekend! I’ll be back next Monday with a DIY project tutorial!
