Cornucopia Thanksgiving Succulent Centerpiece DIY

In days gone by, the cornucopia, or horn of plenty, was a symbol of abundance and nourishment. It was commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts. We decided to bring the cornucopia up to modern times with and have it overflow with succulents! There is nothing better than a succulent arrangement. And this one? It’s something to truly be thankful for!

Succulents and Cornucopia

Start by gathering your supplies. You will need a cornucopia or basket. We found this little darling on Amazon. We used the Harddy Succulents Baby Boy Shower variety pack of 2 inch planted succulents for this project. You will also need to pick up some potting soil and moss.

Fill Cornucopia with Moss

Start by lining your basket with moss.

Add soil to cornucopia and unpack succulents

Next, add in your potting soil and unpack your succulents.

Add a variety of succulent textures, shapes and colors to cornucopia

Starting at the back, add in different shapes, textures and colors. This pack has so many great choices, it was easy to vary the look!

Cover bare parts of cornucopia with more succulents or moss

Keep going until you get to the end of the cornucopia and then go back and cover the bare soil with moss for a more finished look.
