Create a Cornucopia of Seeds

Make a beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece with this easy project.

What You'll Need

  • Newspaper
  • Black spray paint
  • Plastic foam balls, such as Styrofoam
  • Thick white crafts glue
  • Seeds such as split peas, red kidney beans, navy beans, black beans, and lentils
  • Cornucopia
  • Sprigs of bittersweet

Make It

  1. In a well-ventilated work area, cover the surface with newspaper.
  2. Spray-paint the foam balls black and let them dry.
  3. Cover a small area of each ball with glue. Place beans on the glued area -- trying to keep them in horizontal rows. Allow each section to dry before starting a new area.
