Paper Cornucopia Thanksgiving Place Cards

Turning paper crafts into festive Thanksgiving decorations are always a win. Not only are paper decorations often inexpensive, they're also disposable, which means you don't have to worry about storing anything once the holiday passes. It also makes it easy to customize the look and feel of your Thanksgiving celebration each year. 


The below tutorial is a simple one that uses the classic cornucopia motif as inspiration. A traditional symbol of the holiday, our paper cornucopias are a bit more elegant, a bit more modern and a whole lot chic.

We made them mini so they could act as Thanksgiving place cards, but you can use the same general idea to create a larger centerpiece.

Supplies
  • Decorative gold paper cut in 6-inch squares
  • Strong 2-sided adhesive tape
  • cellophane bags
  • bright turquoise ribbon cut in 6-inch lengths
  • peacock feathers
Directions

Step 1: Run a strip of adhesive tape along one of the edges of the gold paper.

 

 

Step 2: Bring the sides of the paper together to form a cone and press tightly.

 

 

Step 3: Fill a cellophane bag with mixed nuts or other treats and slip inside the cone.

 

 

Step 4: Tie the bag with a length of bright turquoise ribbon.

Step 5: Insert a peacock feather into the cone, underneath the bag, and adhere with a small piece of tape.

 

 

Step 6: Cut one side of the ribbon to a 1-inch length and adhere the name tag to the ribbon. Leave the other side of the ribbon longer and twist it a few times and then adhere that end to the outside of the cone near the tip.
