Since cornucopias are such an iconic symbol of Thanksgiving, I thought paper cones were in order.
- Lightweight cardstock cut 6x6. I used a metallic gold by Recollections from Michaels
- Jute twine
- Die Cuts
I formed my cone shape and taped and stapled together.
Pretty boring right? I had this package of leaf shaped doilies I found on one of my Dollar Tree trips and thought hmmm….maybe they would work here.
I just ran a line of tape down the center of my cone and stuck a doily about halfway in. Better. Still kinda boring. In lieu of a doily, you could use a big die cut.
What isn’t made better with jute? Ran a line of hot glue down the back of the cone starting about 1/3 of the way from the bottom and then wrapped my jute around ending at the bottom. Had some more glittered turkeys from other projects ( Recollections) and glued one on top of the twine.
Then die cut oak leaves using the Memory Box Leaf Trio die I used on my place cards and candles and scraps of Core’dinations glittered paper, made and glued on a jute bow at the stem, and glued to the cone. Done and done!
Simple but so very effective, love them, x
Your title had me laughing out loud! These are adorable, Carol. I *love* those leaf doilies!! These are going to look fantastic on your table for the holidays!
Great idea and they look lovely!
What a cute idea! I love the jute and little turkeys on the bottom. Lovely!!
Those are adorable Carol! Really pretty!
Oh wow! This is an fabulous idea! I love it and wish I had thought of it ;)
OMGosh, I ♥ this idea. I will have to be on the lookout for some of those doilies! Cute, cute idea.
So pretty and elegant. I love how those leaf doilies accent it and the die is gorgeous (ps there is a die sale after T-Day on lifestyle crafts)
THey turned out so cute...all the little extra touches really made them stand out!!! Definitely fill them with chocolates:-)
