Sweeten Your Thanksgiving With a Candy Cornucopia

diy-candy-cornucopiaInspired by the first Thanksgiving and our favorite sweet treat, we’ve created these adorable candy cornucopias using just waffle cones, pumpkin candy , and candy corn. This would also be a great opportunity to make use of that leftover Halloween candy (if there is any, of course).

Not only is this a unique Thanksgiving dessert idea, but this so is simple to recreate, making it the perfect fall or Thanksgiving craft for kids! They can help make these beauties beforehand for the dessert display or during the turkey festivities as a fun activity to keep them occupied.

Alternatively, these would make adorable place card settings for your fall fête; simple attach a tag with the guest’s name and place on top of each plate for a fun and festive feel to your décor. Or, for a simply sweet touch to your spread, scatter several of these cornucopias throughout food spreads and displays.

Supplies for DIY Candy Cornucopia

Waffle cones
Pumpkin jelly candies
Candy corn
