    Cornucopia: Place seven dowel rods into Styrofoam evenly spaced to create a cone shape. Reinforce with hot glue and let dry. Prop the cone up and wrap the jute rope around the dowels in an upward motion, sealing each layer down with hot glue. Leave approximate 8 inches of rope. Cut the Styrofoam ball off and wrap jute on top of dowels to mask. Let dry.

    Birch Pumpkins: Paint small circles onto birch coasters and let dry. Cut 4 inches of ribbon and fold in half. From the outer edge, cut out a wedge creating two half-moons. Glue moons together with the seam running down the middle. Clip 1 inch of wood stem down to create pumpkin stem. Attach stem and ribbon leaf to top of birch coaster and let dry.
