- Color the cornucopia brown. (see photos)
- Depending on the skill level, amount of time, and preferences, draw or cut out of colored cardstock the following foods: tomatoes, an ear of corn, carrots, a pumpkin, a bunch of grapes, and a squash. If you are cutting out the various pieces of food, make sure to glue them securely and allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
- On the bottom of the card, use a marker to write "Bountiful Thanks for All You Do" or "Abundant Thanks." (see photos)
- Decorate the inside and the outside of the card with anything else that you desire. On the inside of the card, be sure to write a nice note of thanks to a neighbor, friend, or loved one. Then, deliver or mail your card to warm someone's heart!
