Making a Cornucopia

November 11, 2011

This is a recycled cornucopia. I found the cornucopia at my local thrift store along with the flowers. Everything, except the moss that was used, was recycled thrift or items I already had at my house.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes

  1. First I took a piece of Styrofoam that came in my husband's birthday present. I cut it down to a size I could wedge inside the cornucopia. Piece of Styrofoam

  2. Once that was done I pulled it out and took enough moss to cover the Styrofoam. Then I hot glued the moss on to the Styrofoam. This way the white Styrofoam had no chance of being seen. Craft Moss


  3. Next I took a piece of wire ribbon left over from another project and placed it around the cornucopia and tied the bow until I got it just the way I wanted. I tacked the ribbon down with hot glue. Ribbon Tied around Cornucopia Basket

  4. Once this was done I started choosing which flowers I wanted to use and cut them off the stems leaving about an inch and a half of stem on each flower. Then I started pushing them through the Styrofoam however I liked them. Flowers being glued to Cornucopia

  5. Once the flowers were placed I pushed the Styrofoam back in to the cornucopia and tacked it with hot glue. I also tacked some of flowers down randomly to the cornucopia. This is a versatile project!

You can place it on your mantel, door, kitchen table, or anywhere else you would like. It is a perfect fall craft decoration that can be used all season. This craft was also extremely cheap. The cornucopia was .79 cents, I had the Styrofoam, ribbon, and hot glue, the moss was $2.00 for a large bag and I only used a small portion, and the fall flowers were 30% off of $3.95 at my local thrift store. I still have flowers and moss left over for another project!
