Just recently, I got to visit a local museum – one that is set up to appear as a town in the 1920s. As we toured the homestead, I noticed that the Christmas tree was decorated in paper cornucopias – as the docent called them – all over the tree.
I immediately loved them. So simple, but still so lovely.
I decided to make them as soon as we got home.
I used the Brenda Walton Faceted Cone Bigz die to cut out the little paper cones from kraft cardstock.
A little hot glue secured the cones together, and then I gathered some supplies.
I filled the cones with greenery that I clipped from the yard.
I wrapped the cones with black and white chevron burlap ribbon, and then hung them from the stairway with black and white baker’s twine.
A few red and gold berry sprays jazzed everything up.
Now these simple cornucopias greet everyone as they walk through the front door.
I love how quick and easy these cornucopias are.
It was very cool to bring a small piece of our trip through the museum back with us.
These are super cute Tara! What a great way to decorate a staircase!
Those are lovely! We’d love to have you share this at our weekly link party. Hope to see you there! http://www.thelifeofjenniferdawn.com/2015/12/diy-kitchen-gift-ideas-and-little-bird.html

Hi, I just popped over from a ‘ little bird told me’ link party. I love these! Simple but very effective, I am definitely putting this in my favourites for a re-visit.
These are lovely! I’ve featured them in a collection of cozy, rustic Christmas ideas for today’s link party. http://www.thelifeofjenniferdawn.com/2015/12/ideas-for-rustic-cozy-christmas-and.html
Thank you so much, Jennifer! 🙂
