To make this mini cornucopia, gather the following:

Decorative Table Favors

To begin, cut the burlap paper into six inch squares.

Burlap Paper for Bow Making
While holding the paper, grasp the pointed corner facing up, and roll together the burlap into a cone shape, as the bottom is forming a point. It may take a bit of maneuvering but once you line up the edges and point into a cone, run glue along the edges where they overlap to hold the cone in place.

Once the cone is together, take about thirty inches of decorative wire ribbon, fold together and pull the end wire on each side, gathering the ribbon into ruffles. Continue pulling the wires and gathering the ribbon until you have a ruffle long enough to fit around the top inside of the cone. Adjust the wires on both ends of the ribbon ruffle, tie in knot and cut off excess.

How to Make Designer Bows

For the bow, cut a 15″ piece of Bowdabra wire, fold together and place in the Mini Bowdabra, tucking the ends under.   Fold a ten inch matching decorative wired ribbon together with ends overlapping. Gather the middle and insert into the Bowdabra.

While the bow is still in the Bowdabra, push the two loose ends of the Bowdabra wire through the loop at the other end. Pull the bow wire tightly while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Gently pull the bow out of the Bowdabra and wrap the wire behind the bow, tying in a knot and cutting off excess.
