Tutorial: Paper Cone Wreath by Holly!


Holly here today with a tutorial on how to make Paper Cone Wreaths. I love these wreath 'cause they're bold, make a statement and are super easy and make!


Gorgeous papers, right?   The 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?


Supplies Needed:

Hot Glue Gun
8-12x12 sheets of double sided pattern paper
Liquid chalk or ink
1-12 inch cardboard circle


Cut patterned 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 the edges of the cone 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 used a sentiment from Gypsy Wanderings cut at 3.35 inches.   I laced Hug Snug seam binding ribbon throughout the scallop circle 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!
