A cornucopia is a horn of plenty. Make your Thanksgiving cornucopia overflow with fruit and flowers, plus plenty of color and texture.

What You'll Need:

  • Pencil
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Poster board
  • Craft glue
  • Newspaper
  • Poster paints
  • Palette or paint tray
  • Small hand-roller (brayer)
  • Drawing paper

Draw a horn shape on a piece of corrugated cardboard. Draw fruit shapes such as a pear, a banana, grapes, and apples on cardboard.

Carefully peel a layer of paper off the side of the cardboard you have not drawn on to expose the inside ridges. Cut out the shapes. Glue the shapes on a piece of poster board, ridged side up. Let the glue set.

Cover your work surface with newspaper. Place poster paint on a palette or paint tray. Roll the brayer in the paint, then roll it over the cardboard shapes.

Place a piece of paper over the painted surface. Gently rub the paper with your hands. Remove the paper and let the paint dry.
