DIY Christmas Tree Cones

Today I am sharing with you all how I embellished two brown paper cones I picked up from JoAnn’s. I also made one out of damask paper. 

For the large brown cone I hot glued satin ribbon flipped over to expose the dull side. I simply added my hot glue and wrapped the ribbon all the way around until it was finished.
For the smaller brown cone I wrapped it in some Canvas Corp. rope. again by hot gluing the rope all the way down until it was finished.
The “paper” cone tree, I traced a dinner plate for the bottom of the cone tree, a salad plate, for the second layer of the cone tree, and a dessert plate for the top of the cone tree. You trace the three circles using the three different plates. Cut out the circles and then find your center, draw a circle/dot and then draw a line from the middle center down to the edge of the circle, do this twice creating a 4 inch gap, it should look like a triangle. Cut out that triangle, then fold your sides in, getting your desired cone shape. I used clear double sided tape to tape down the folded underneath lip of the cone. I then stacked the three different sizes. Super Easy. The cute turq. damask paper is from Canvas Corp.
and here is a paper cone example (image found via Google) again like I explained above, you can get the three different sizes by using three different sized plates

Have fun creating some yourselves, and thanks for stopping by friends.

  11. Love these! Especially the colors!

  12. Beautiful. I’m loving the blue!

  13. I just grab a large piece of card and make a cone by taping both sides together with tape.
    Then I even out the bottom of the paper cone by cutting it to make it stand.
    Then I wrap garland around the cone and tuck the ends under the tree bottom.
    That’s all it takes to make a paper cone tree.
    No fuss,
