Supplies Needed to make a Paper Cone Wreath:

Cut pattered paper into 6 x 6 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.

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!
