1. Cut a toilet paper tube in half the long way.

2. Apply hot glue to one inside edge of the tube and overlap one end until you have formed a cone shape.

3. Use a small piece of aluminum foil to create a “tail” and insert it in to the skinny end of the tube.


4. Apply hot glue along the top of the tube then roll the burlap until it covers the tube.

 5. Secure the other end with hot glue.

 6. Cut some of the excess burlap from the open end of the tube, then add hot glue around the inside of the tube and tuck in the burlap ends.

 7. Shape the aluminum foil end of the tube until it curves up to form the cornucopia shape.

 8. Add felt leaf embellishments to the cornucopia and the place card with hot glue. The leaves could be cut with any die cutting machine – I used the Cricut Maker.
