Make These Mini Dip-Dye Cornucopias in Less Than 30 Minutes

Growing up in an Asian-American family, my family’s Thanksgiving traditions weren’t exactly like the traditions you would typically think of. Our dinner table was full of turkey, potatoes, stuffingand Asian food. I never complained because I love Asian food, but I definitely did miss out on some other traditions, like the cornucopia centerpiece and breaking the wishbone. This year, I still plan on stuffing my face with the Lee family traditional recipes, but I’m also excited to bring something new to the festivities!

Today I’m making mini dip-dye cornucopias to decorate the Thanksgiving tables or to just hand out to my little cousins as gifts. Mini home decor is all the rage these days, and I’m super on board. This DIY is not only adorable, but it will only take you less than half an hour from start to finish. Let’s do it!

Materials and Tools:

Instructions:

1. Make a cone out of aluminum foil.

2. Make a template from the wax paper by placing the aluminum foil cone sideways and marking the sides with a pencil. Holding the point of the cone in the same place, roll the cone around to make a semicircle. Mark the top of the cone as you roll. You should end up with a semicircle drawn on the wax paper.

3. Cut out the shape. Wrap the wax paper around the aluminum foil and secure with tape.

4. Anchor one end of the cord to the tip of the cone with hot glue. Wrap the cord around the cone, gluing as you go. When you reach the end, snip the cord and glue.

5. Mix a little dye with water and dip the cornucopia in the mixture. Add more dye and dip the cornucopia two-thirds in.

6. Let dry and fill with goodies.

If you decide to fill them with food like I did, you might want to line the insides with some extra wax paper.

See how quick that was? You can make like 100 of these while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
