Victorian project







To get started with Xmas gifts or tree ornaments.
My easy cornucopia Victorian style.

Cut a square of lace or fabric and one of linen.
Sew around edge few times.
Fold on diagonal where pin is and sew.
Add ribbon hanger to back.
Decorate how you like, I used beads, more ribbon and chenille.
Tucked a handmade bloom into the opening.
In Victorian times they would be filled with treats like small candy or pennies and little booklets.
