This cute craft is made from torn pieces of construction paper. Use it to help explain why we give thanks during the Thanksgiving holiday and how the cornucopia symbolizes our bountiful harvests.
What You Need
- 1 sheet of plain white paper
- 1 sheet of black construction paper
- Half sheets of construction paper: brown, black, purple, red, yellow, green and orange
- White craft glue
How to make it
1. Draw or print a cornucopia onto the white paper.
2. Trim white paper if needed to fit evenly in the center of the black sheet of construction paper. Glue in place.
3. Tear (don’t cut) remaining construction paper into small squares, about ½” – 1” in size.
4. Glue the torn pieces onto the white paper in this order:
- Brown – horn
- Black – horn mouth/rim
- Purple – grapes at top
- Red – apple to the right, below top grapes
- Purple – eggplant
- Red – apple below eggplant
- Green – leaves below apple
- Yellow – apple below top grapes
- Green and yellow – corn cob
- Green – leaves below corn
- Purple – grapes below corn cob
- Orange – pumpkin
5. Glue torn pieces on for stems – brown for the grapes and pumpkin and black for the eggplant. You may also add stems for the apples if you prefer. Allow to dry completely.
