Cornucopia Favors for Thanksgiving

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing how to create cornucopia favors for Thanksgiving. I’ve hosted Thanksgiving many times, and there always seems to be some unforeseen delays no matter how well I plan. These colorful favors add a festive element to your tablescape and guests can enjoy a sweet treat to help tide them over until the main meal is served.

Mini Cornucopia Thanksgiving Favors with Foiled Letters and Colorful Leaves

I love to create projects that are fun to touch! Caning isn’t just for furniture! Its flexibility when softened makes it really fun to craft with. I added color to this cornucopia project with die-cut leaves, tissue paper, and Metallic Transfer Foil, Holographic colors.

Creating Cornucopias from Caning

How To Cut Caning For Crafts

Use scissors to cut rectangles of caning to measure about 7 inches by 4.5 inches.

How to Cut Caning to Create Mini Cornucopias

Use scissors to cut away the bottom left and right corners as shown.

How to Soften Caning with Water

Soak the caning pieces in water for 3 to 5 minutes until pliable.

How to Mold Caning into Mini Cornucopias

Roll the caning pieces into a cornucopia shape and secure with string. Let the caning dry overnight. When the string is cut away the caning holds its shape.

Festive Accents
