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:
- Corrugated cardboard
- Poster board
- Craft glue
- 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.
