How to Make a Cornucopia

When brainstorming what I wanted to do for Thanksgiving arrangements I had a "duh" moment - obviously I needed to do a cornucopia!
I picked this one up at Hobby Lobby for $10. I lined the bottom with tin foil and inserted a full brick of wet floral foam. (Make sure you’re doing this on a surface that can get wet or put a little plate under the foam.)

I have a video below for visual learners, but here’s what I did:
  1. Covered the foam in faux leaves
  2. Stuck a small bamboo stick through the bottom of some cuties oranges and a pomegranate and inserted them into the foam along with some faux pumpkins on a stem I️ also got from Hobby Lobby 
  3.  Next I added flowers - a half dozen red roses, five or so stems of purple mums and one stem of orange lilies

This was actually way easier and took way fewer flowers than I thought! I’m in love with it on my table right now!
