Paper Plate Cornucopia

Difficulty: Very Easy

This is a cute way to hold nametags for guests. As they arrive, have them look through the cornucopia for their nametag to display in front of their plate.
What you'll need:
- 9" paper plate
- Brown acrylic paint
- Jumbo craft sticks
- Craft foam: orange, green, red and purple
- Fine point marker
- White craft glue
- Glue stick
How to make it:
- Paint the paper plate with brown paint on both sides and let dry. (See photo.)
- Use patterns to cut out shapes from craft foam. Purple for eggplant, green for grapes, red for apples, and orange for carrots and oranges. (See photo.)
- Glue the fruit and vegetable shapes onto the ends of the craft sticks.
- Write your guests names on the craft sticks. (See photo.)
- Roll the paper plate into a cone shape and secure with glue stick. You may need to hold it for a minute or so to allow the glue to adhere.
- Fill the cornucopia with name sticks.
- Instead of writing the guests names for them, keep some pens handy and allow guests to choose what harvest food they want and have them write their name on the stick themselves.
- If you have a large number of guests coming, make several cornucopias so that they are within reach to everyone at the table.
- Craft foam is available is regular and jumbo sized sheets at your local craft supply store.
