Miniature clay cornucopia for Thanksgiving

This colorful miniature cornucopia is only about 5" long. Made with air-dry clay, it looks super cute by itself as part of a Thanksgiving table setting, plus it doubles as a holder for a small menu or place card. 

I have a good friend who delights in making miniatures for doll houses and boxed displays. Once I started working with Activa Products, manufacturer of clays and molding materials, I thought I might like to try making a mini something. 

My eyes and fingers couldn't quite work at the traditional 1/12th scale that most miniaturists prefer, but believe me when I tell you, making a cluster of grapes that were each about the size of half a TicTac was challenging enough, lol.
