Step 1: Roll the cardstock paper into a cone and secure with hot glue.

Step 2: Trim the edge of the paper to the cone size of your choice. Remember when you made party hats out of paper when you were little? This is the same exact thing. Roll the cardstock into a cone and attach with hot glue. Trim the edge to make the perfect cone shape.

We filled these mini cornucopias with one of our favorite plants — succulents! We suggest wrapping the stems and dirt with plastic wrap to keep them together and for minimal dirt-on-the-plate spillage. If you are worried about a potential mess, air plants are always another great option.
