DIY Flower Cones

Welcome! Today I am sharing an easy tutorial for making flower cones.

The weather is warming up, and that is putting me in the mood to decorate my home. I love having flowers around me, but we all know that real flowers wilt and die in a couple of days. That’s why I like to buy silk flowers because they look beautiful and you can use them for a very long time. And paper cones are the perfect way to display a flower arrangement.

Continue reading below for instructions.

Supplies:

  • Medium Weight Paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Ribbon
  • Silk Flowers

 

Instructions:
1. To make the flower cones, cut the paper to the size you want your cone. I decided to keep the papers at the full length because my flowers are large.

2. Roll each sheet of paper into a cone shape. Secure the outer flap of the cone with a hot glue gun.

3. Punch a hole on both sides at the top of the paper cone. Thread ribbon through the holes. Make a loop by tying the loose ends of the ribbon into a bow.

4. Hang the paper cones on some wall hooks or your desired location, and then place flowers into the opening of the cones.
