Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year and looking decorations for a Thanksgiving table? I’ve got a fun DIY craft idea you should try! I put together a festive table centerpiece and a cornucopia! It’s so easy to make, I promise!
First, I gathered all of my supplies to make a cornucopia. I’ll share where you can buy these items later on!
Supplies You Need:
-Pumpkin & Leaf Arrangement
-Fake Corn Cobs
-Hot Glue & Glue Sticks
How to Make a Cornucopia for Thanksgiving
Let’s get started! A pumpkin & leaf arrangement made the perfect starting point to make my cornucopia. To create a more full look, I added a few apples to the mix!
Attach the Apples
Since my apples were made of foam, they were super easy to attach! To fasten the apples, I cut a piece of wire about 8 to 10 inches long and poked it into the bottom side of the apple.
Then I twisted the wire around the stem of the arrangement and positioned the apple near the front.
After that I added a bit of glue for extra support. Feel free to add more apples or include another fruit of your choice! Pears and Grapes would be great additions!
Attach the Corn Cob
Corn cobs are such cute accents to add to a cornucopia. When I saw these at Hobby Lobby, I couldn’t pass them up. To attach the corn, I placed a bead of hot glue on the bottom side and fastened it to the arrangement.
Assemble the Cornucopia
Now let’s put everything together! This next step is really simple. I just attached the arrangement to the cornucopia basket.
To accomplish this, I cut a 10-12 inch piece of wire and wrapped it around the stem of the arrangement a few times.
Then I looped each end of the wire through the inside of the cornucopia to the outside edge. Then I twisted the wires together a few times to fasten it. I kept the wire near the bottom so the wire wasn’t visible.
If you need, you can attach the arrangement to the inside edge of the cornucopia using hot glue.
That’s all there is to it! It seems like when I’m crafting I always have left over supplies! This time was no exception. So I set aside my extras to use to decorate my centerpiece tray!
Easy Thanksgiving Tabletop Decor
When I finished my cornucopia, I thought it would look pretty on a rustic tray. So I arranged the cornucopia at the center and accented it with fun Fall decorations. There’s no right or wrong way to decorate this, so feel free to get creative!

Hobby lobby has a huge selection of Fall decor! While I was there, I found the leaves, pumpkin & leaf arrangement and corn cobs.
A Thanksgiving centerpiece is so easy to make and it only takes a few simple supplies to get started. It’s such a beautiful DIY decoration that will definitely dress up your Thanksgiving table.

I like how you wired the fake fruit to the basket so they would stay in place. Great instructions
