Craft Project - Cone-ucopia Place Cardsby Wen Zientek-SicoThese cute place cards are not only quick and easy to make, they serve double duty as a light snack before dinner. We chose to use healthy Harvest ingredients, but any small pieces of fruit, candy, nuts, seeds, or other favorite food can be placed in your cone-ucopias. To recreate our cone-ucopias, use cashews, pistachios, pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds), sunflower seeds, roasted squash seeds, dried apricots, dried cranberries, and golden raisins.
Cone-ucopia Place Cards
Pens in assorted colors to match your table settings
1 sugar ice cream cone per person
1 small plate per person
1/3 cup assorted nuts, seeds, and dried fruit per person
With the scissors, cut out long thin strips of paper (we used a strip of paper 8 inches long by 3/4 inch wide) for each person. With the scissors, curl the ends of each strip of paper, making sure to leave ample room for the name of each person. Write the names of all your guests on the pieces of paper, and set aside to dry. Place the sugar cone on the plate, and loosely fill the cones. Place on the plate and let the contents slightly spill out onto the plate. Tuck the names into each cone and place on the table where each person is supposed to sit.
