Thanksgiving

Colorful Crepe Paper Cornucopia

The tradition of the cornucopia is to symbolize abundance and blessing. Which is definitely proper as we move into giving thanks this time of year.

When I think of blessings – the last color that comes to mind is an earthy brown. Let’s give thanks in color this year! A cornucopia of flowers that is a shocking pink, yellow, teal, or whatever color you think of as the color of abundance.

Making this bright horn of abundance is quick and easy. It’s bold color will easily be the star of any Thanksgiving feast.

  1. Start by cutting off a large section of the crepe paper using the complete width of the paper, ours is about 2 feet. You are going for substantial size here to get the look just right.
  2. Fold the end together and glue at the top. Then wrap the crepe paper into a cone shape gluing down towards the bottom.
  3. Cinch the bottom of the horn tightly, about 5 inches in and glue into place. The crepe paper bends really easily – fold up the end of the horn towards the ceiling and bend into place.
  4. Use a ribbon to tie the end together and to keep the bend firm.

Fill the horn with flowers! We used a small bouquet in a mason jar to keep the flowers fresh and surrounded it with another bouquet. Since the cornucopia stands for abundance, the more flowers the merrier I say. The Thanksgiving table will look stunning.
