Gorgeous papers, huh?  These papers are from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Kit  by American Crafts that Cassie from Paper Issues sold through her Paper Shop.  Love these papers, it was hard to cut them up.....sigh....but totally worth it now.


How to make a  Paper Cone Wreath:


Supplies needed for a paper cone wreath

Supplies Needed to make a Paper Cone Wreath:


  • Hot Glue Gun (guess I should of cleaned up my glue gun for the photo- Ack!)
  • 8-12x12 sheets of double sided card stock
  • Fluid chalk or ink
  • 1-12 inch cardboard circle

rolled paper cones

Cut pattered paper into 6x6 inch squares.   Roll them into cones and hot glue together.  You'll need to make approximately 17 cones for a 12" wreath.   Ink the edges of the cone as desired.

Pencil a circle template in the center of the the cardboard to use as a guide.  Hot glue the cones on  the cardboard following your template lines.
 

For the wreath's second layer, cut patterned paper into 4x6  inch pieces.  Roll them into cones and hot glue together.  You'll need to make approximately 17 cones also for the second layer.  Ink edges as desired.

Hot glue the 4x6 cones to cover the gaps between the first cone layer. 


Ahhhh....now Smile at your creation!

For the center of the wreath,  I added an 8 inch scallop circle and shadow cut from Cricut Elegant Edges and a sentiment cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 3.35 inches.   I laced seam binding ribbon  throughout the circle scallop and stuck in a couple of cute leaf stick pins.  These fun embellishments also came from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan kit.  So Yummy!

Here are a few more examples of Paper Cone Wreaths that I've made.....

 I hope this tutorial inspires you to make a paper cone wreath statement and be BOLD!
