A cornucopia, also known as The Horn of Plenty, is a traditional symbol of the fall harvest and is closely associated with Thanksgiving.  The horn-shaped baskets are a symbol of abundance and nourishment and are often depicted as overflowing with newly harvested fruits and vegetables. Our candy cornucopias puts a sweet twist on the classic horn and are filled to overflowing with candy pumpkins, fruit jellies, candy corn, and marzipan fruits!

What You’ll Need to Make a Candy Cornucopia:

cutting fringe for diy paper cornucopia Start by using the fringe scissors to create a fringed length of crepe paper – you’ll need about 7′ for each cornucopia.

glueing fringed crepe paper to sides of coneStarting at the base of the cone, use the glue stick to attach the fringed tissue to the cone, overlapping each layer slightly. (Just pretend that this green crepe paper is brown, mmmkay?)

Tip: Use a marker to help you roll the tip to create a tighter and more nicely shaped roll! Simply roll the tip of the cone around the marker, hold, and release!
