Thanksgiving Place Setting Ideas | Cornucopia Crafts

Since we’re having Thanksgiving at my house this year, I have been trying to come up with some different Thanksgiving place setting ideas. I want something that I can put on the top of each plate that is festive but not food since there are a variety of food allergies and special diets to deal with in my family. I’m also trying to keep our Thanksgiving dinner as healthy as possible and all the edible cornucopia crafts I’ve come across all use colored candies and pre-packaged foods.

I really wanted to try some of the cornucopia crafts I saw but they all seemed rather complicated and I wanted something easy. I decided to create a cornucopia with some brown scrapbook paper. You could easily do the same thing with construction paper if you have that instead or even a stiff piece of brown felt.
