Mini Cornucopias

Mini CornucopiasThese are cute little favors my mother made when I was little and they're still as fun as they were twenty years ago.

Tiny little cornucopias that can be used as place settings or favors or table decorations.

To shape the horn, just gently steam a sugar cone until it softens (about a minute, be careful not to burn yourself in the steam) then bend the tip up. Hold it in place until it hardens again (just a moment or two) and then fill it with treats.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope your holiday is wonderful.

What a crafty idea! My nine year old will have a ball with this one. Also, I posted a widget to the HP giveaway on my blog at allstace.blogspot.com.

Happy Thanksgiving!

These are all kinds of cute!

I finally got around to watching the Shakleton Imax video you blogged about here a while ago- what a true leader and eternal optimist.

I like for my kids to watch things like this about true heroes more than the Indiana Jones/Superhero stuff. Good recommendation.

Oh my goodness, that is so easy even I can do it :-) What a great idea for mini gifts for my co-workers. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, M&Ms are there, it's kind of a trail mix thing. Though you could use candy corns too. Almost anything would work.
