Craft Thanksgiving place cards

– or help make – mini-cornucopia place cards for the Thanksgiving feast.

Materials

Brown paper lunch bags (one for each guest)

Apples, pears, nuts, acorns, leaves, greenery, etc.

Marker

Instructions

1. Open the lunch bag and roll down the top edge to the outside. About three rolls will be enough, but be careful that you don’t rip it.

2. Gently open the bottom of the bag. Try to follow the glue lines so the bag bottom opens up without rips. (If it rips – well, don’t worry about it.)

3. Pinch the clean (or ragged) bottom edges together to start the tip of the mini-cornucopia.

4. Tightly twist the end to form the tip of the cornucopia. It won’t stay as tight as you like, and don’t expect it to bend or curl up. But it’ll look fine.

5. Fill your cornucopia with apples, pears, nuts, acorns, leaves, greenery – whatever you have on hand.

6. Add a guest’s name to it.

Repeat until you have enough place cards for all.

Don’t forget to wash the fruit used in your cornucopia – someone might want to take a bite.
