Funnels Re-Purposed as Fall Cornucopias

Do these look like cornucopias to you?  They do to me.

Old Funnels




Filling a fall crate with raffia
I started my fall cornucopia vignette with an old Coke crate.  I put a layer of books on the bottom to raise up the contents, and then added a layer of Dollar Tree raffia.

I placed the funnels in the center of the crate with flexible ends hanging over the edge of the crate.

The rest was easy, just filling in the funnels and the crate with pinecones, faux berries, faux leaves, and real mini pumpkins and gourds.

This funnel still had it's original sticker.  It's a J Mark Model 21 funnel.

  7. Well I'm in Halloween mode, so those funnel tails look like something creepy to me, but they still make darn cute cornucopias.

  8. Oh yeah! Darling! Are the ends flexible enough to wind into a "curlycue"? That would further the cornucopia look. I love how it all came together. I need to go look in my garage as I think I might have one of those type of funnels myself! LOL! Great job! You are SO creative!
