Today I'm sharing a tutorial for The Paper Variety on how to make Paper Cone Wreaths.
I just love these types of wreaths 'cause they're bold, make a statement and are super easy and make!
Gorgeous papers, huh? These papers are from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Kit by American Craft 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 don't ya think?
Here's the tutorial so you can make your own:
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
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 Hug Snug 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!
