An Easy & Beautiful Cornucopia DIY for Thanksgiving

By November 7, 2022 No Comments

A cornucopia is a traditional Thanksgiving piece. It symbolizes abundance, a bountiful harvest, and, by extension, an appreciation for both of those things. I asked my friend Krista at Not Just in Novels to create one for us this year and in turn show us her easy steps to make one at home! It could be such a beautiful centerpiece for Thanksgiving day and you really only need a few things from your local grocery store to make it happen! Let’s take a look at her lovely creation and follow along with her step by step guide…

Attach flower pin frog to small dip bowl using craft putty. Roll the putty into a worm shape and press along the outer edge of the bottom of the frog. Press and twist the flower pin frog into the bowl & add water.

Step 2

Place dip bowl in the back of the cornucopia. Arrange flowers in flower frog by securing in pins.

Step 3

Layer fruit in cornucopia, concealing the bowl and spilling onto table.
