Cornucopia paper craft

This cornucopia is made from circles cut from two different colored paper. I was still recycling paper fans, and that's why there's creases in my circles, but the creases are not needed.

I drew circles small to large by hand on orange and yellow paper. Orange and brown paper would be nice colors too.

I made my circles by hand, but using a compass would make it easier to draw circles the next one bigger than the last. An adult may have to use the compass since it has a sharp end to hold it in place while the circle is made.

That's why I tried drawing the circles by hand. Children could easily draw them. 

Put the compass first on the orange paper and next on the brown paper opening the compass just a bit over and over until you've got about  8 to 12 circles. Since I guesstimated with mine, my colors are not perfectly alternating. A compass would help to alternate colors and give your cornucopia a nice contrast.

Cut out the circles, and spread them in a line smallest to the largest.

Place the circles on a paper in a cornucopia shape. When you are happy about how your cornucopia looks, glue each circle on.

Draw a pumpkin on orange paper, a few gourds on yellow paper, and some large grapes on some green paper. Color the stems brown, and cut out. Arrange the pumpkin, gourds, and grapes on the largest circle of the cornucopia, and glue them on when you are happy with the arrangement.
