Candy-Filled Paper Cornucopias
Sweeten Christmas by filling these festive and easy-to-make paper horns with candy.
Materials and Tools:
construction paper, green or red
- Roll a piece of construction paper into a cone. Glue the ends to secure the cone shape.
- Measure ribbon around the opening of the cone and cut the ribbon to size.
- Dab glue on one end of the ribbon and press onto the outside of the cornucopia. Wrap a second ribbon around the opening and glue one end of the ribbon on top of the other to form a complete circle. The ribbon should frame the opening of the cornucopia.
- Allow the glue to dry fully, and then fill your cornucopia with candy to give to a friend.
