Our family is new to the world of Tasha Tudor, and a warm thanks to the Graham Family for introducing us to these wonderful books over at the lovely Old Fashioned Sweet Felicity Blog. Our family can certainly appreciate simple living and old fashioned values with the celebration of family heritage. So we have been enjoying crafting in an old fashioned way this week thanks to the enjoyable reading of Tasha Tudors book Old Fashioned Gifts.
We decided to make a cornucopia filled with yummy sweets to share with each other. We have limited craft supplies but if you have access to printed card stock and ribbon the sky would be the limit with this craft. The children drew names and is keeping it a secret who the cornucopia they are making is for. For even more fun they could be hidden around the house for an Old Fashioned Autumn Treasure Hunt.
If you would like to join us in some Autumn fun the directions to make one are below.
Curl your paper and glue or tape into the cornucopia shape.
gather print or colored paper and cut out some leaf shapes click the pattern below to print the shapes we used.
set out all your shapes and grab some glue.
pick your shapes and glue them on.
It's that simple and there you have it! A wonderful fall cornucopia!
Now gather your treats to fill it up. Anna made some chocolate. Popcorn would be great and homemade cookies or trail mix would be yummy also.
We made some paper grass to fill the inside and then placed the treats inside. Now it's ready to share.
To make them an extra blessing you can pick out a favorite bible verse and tuck that inside with the treats also.
We hope you enjoyed our Old Fashioned Autumn Treat
