ELEGANT THANKSGIVING CORNUCOPIA

A cornucopia is actually a very simple project to complete because there really is no right or wrong. Michael's Craft Store, Roberts Crafts or your local craft store will have traditional cornucopias like this one. If you are lucky enough to have a design store close to you they may carry rusty iron cornucopias that are wonderful. If you are going to use fresh cut stems use what you can find in your environment. Consider where you live and find plants, flowers, trees, even palm trees, that grow in your area to fill the cornucopia. Start with floral foam that has been saturated in water, to completely saturate it will take a couple of hours at least. Then cover in floral moss, start adding your cut stems. Gradually fill the cornucopia as if things were just spilling out. To embellish use ribbon, fresh flowers, or mini pumpkins (sprayed with gold spray paint and, or glitter spray of course)!!! Remember this project is simple, its not meant to be hard, don't over think it and use what is in your own environment so your able to keep the cost low!!! Elegant and beautiful does not have to have an extravagant price tag.

We hope to inspire you this year to entertain and create wonderful moments for you, your family and friends. Moments and memories are what really make life Over the Tipsy Top!!!!!

Love, The Tipsy Girls
