Thanksgiving Cornucopia

Copyright  Susi Nuss, http://BasketMakers.com All rights reserved - Thanksgiving Cornucopia and Harvest Baskets Filled With Fall Vegetables And Brilliant New England Foliage. Make a cornucopia for a Thanksgiving table decoration with this free basket pattern - cornucopia.jpg (36685 bytes)

Gather the family together for a Thanksgiving dinner. Dress your table in its finest and decorate it with a hand woven cornucopia. This harvest basket can be made from round reed or gathered vines. The cone shaped basket shown here filled with red potatoes is a relatively easy shape to make using twining for the body. The rim can be done in several variations of border patterns. The example in the photo is braided.
