Make a Paper Cornucopia
You Will Need:
Paper Cornucopia Pattern
Ribbon, string, or yarn
Tissue paper or old newspaper
Step One - Print out the Paper Cornucopia Pattern.
Step Two - Cut out the pattern and glue together in the shape of an ice cream cone. Put glue on the flap only and make sure the flap is on the inside of the cone.
Step Three - Carefully cut two small holes on opposite sides of the cone. Cut a length of string or ribbon or yarn about 8 inches long. Make a small knot at one end of the string. Thread the string through one hole making sure the knot is on the inside of the cone. Bring the string around and thread it through the other hole and make another small knot, again making sure the knot is on the inside of the cup.
Step Four - Decorate your cup any way you wish. Use construction paper cut-outs, glitter, crayons, markers, paint, whatever.
Step Five - If you want to you can fill your cup with candy. (You can put a little tissue or newspaper at the bottom of the cup so it looks full without using as much candy.) OR You could fill it with other goodies and use it as a party favor.
Step Six - Hang your cornucopia on the Christmas tree and enjoy it!!
