Cornucopia

This new twist for a Thanksgiving cornucopia offers so many possibilities! Cornucopias are fun and beautiful for decorating. If you’re having trouble getting that custom look you want, here’s an easy, inexpensive DIY project.

Materials:

CornucopiaMaterials

Plastic megaphone

Fall fabric of your choice

Fall floral pieces

Heavy-duty glue or duct tape

Floral foam or Styrofoam

Scissors

Pipe cleaners or wire

Decorative gourds, if desired

Step 1: Secure pipe cleaners or wire inside the mouthpiece of the megaphone, as seen in the photo. This will be the “tail end.” I used duct tape for this. It’s easier to remove, and I might want to reuse the megaphone for something else later.

Step 2: Make sure you have enough fabric to cover the megaphone. Secure it from the inside, covering the whole megaphone, as the photo shows.

Step 3: As you wrap the megaphone, fold fabric around the tail end, to cover pipe cleaners.

Step 4: Hot glue or super glue the fabric together at the end, so it stays secure.

Step 5: Insert the foam piece, and use it to secure fall floral stems. Add any other items you wish, and your fall cornucopia is complete!
