Large Cornucopia

By: Jim DelPrine for FloraCraft

Create an impressive, large scale cornucopia with minimal cost and time required. This Thanksgiving craft project from FloraCraft would be perfect for a hotel lobby, buffet table or a spectacular front porch.


Large Cornucopia


Materials:

  • Straw Wreaths: (one each) 24″, 20″, 18″, 16″, 14″, 12″, 10″, 8″
  • Straw Swag: 24″
  • FloraCraft Moss Covered Spheres: (two each) 4″ and 6″
  • Assorted, permanent fall silks, fruit, and pumpkins
  • NDI Corkscrew willow branch (permanent)
  • Design Master Paint, Dark Chocolate
  • Bindwire, natural
  • Two large tomato cages
  • Cinder Block

Instructions:

  1. Wire together the two tomato cages, one inside the other. The cages form the armature for the container design. Paint the cages and the cinder block using the Design Master Dark Chocolate or other dark, neutral color.
     
  2. Wire the straw wreaths firmly to the tomato cage armature starting with the largest and working towards the smallest.
     
  3. The larger wreaths will require about four to six binding points while smaller wreaths will require three to four. Wire the straw swag inside the 10″ and 8″ wreaths to make an attenuated tail to the horn. Bend the finished design to give the horn a curve.This gives the finished cornucopia a more rhythmic, professional appearance.
     
  4. Fill the horns interior with corkscrew willow branches. Place the cinder block into the large end of the horn, just inside the 24″ wreath.The block will provide enough physical weight to hold the cornucopia in place. It also acts as a mechanic to enable staging of large placements such as pumpkins.
     
  5. Wedge the Moss Covered Spheres between the block and the inside of the straw wreath.These decorative spheres also become a mechanic for anchoring placements of fall silks and fruit.
