Ladies and gentlemen, I feel like fall is the best time of the year for decorations. They’re are so many vibrant colors to choose from and some of the best holidays to start celebrating. We’ve been through Halloween candy, flower arrangements, and food here on the blog already so now it’s only right to turn our heads toward Thanksgiving. This is a favorite holiday for a lot of people due to the focus on food. For us, it’s definitely a treat. We’re always trying to come up with new ways to cook things, but that also means we can’t forget table decor. This tutorial doesn’t have step by step photos, but I’ll give you the basic idea on how to make a cornucopia for your Thanksgiving table.
It all starts with the correctly shaped basket. From here, it’s just about decorating it how you choose. I’ll admit that for me this was a bit of a fail. I didn’t like the way the ribbon turned out on the back, and I think the majority of that had to do with the fact that I had selected wired ribbon. It was on sale guys so I went with it. I regret it now, but I don’t think many people will notice now that the cornucopia is full of all the wonderful fall colors and treats.
This tutorial is probably as easy as it gets. I literally just selected a bunch of fall leaves, berries, and flowers that were on sale at my local Michael’s store and started to fill the basket. I filled it until I felt like it was overflowing with stuff. My cornucopia wouldn’t help you win The Hunger Games even if it was a bunch of games about actually being hungry since all those fruits are faker than fake, but I think the grapes at least turned out to look pretty real.
Basically though the point of this craft is to have a plethora of things to stuff inside the horn shaped basket. You could fill it with just fruit and vegetables in a more traditional way if that makes you happy, but this one is up to your imagination. You can take it as far as you want. I didn’t even use glue on this one. It can be changed out just as easily as it was put together the first time. It can be reused from year to year and never look the same. This is limitless, folks. Enjoy!
