  • Fan the 5 plates out so the edges are overlapping 
  • The last one should be a little pushed up so it is a bit higher than the others, like it’s curving upwards
  • Staple them together
  • Take your scissors and shape the top to resemble a cornucopia – leave the top 2 plates alone and make a curved tail out of the last 3
  • Cut the white piece of paper so it fits inside the center of the dessert plate
  • Let the kids color some fruit and vegetables onto the white sheet of paper
  • Glue that down to the front dessert plate
  • Punch holes in the top of the cornucopia for hanging and tie yarn or ribbon to the holes
  • If you feel like it…Add silk leaves for embellishments
