PRETTY PAPER CONE WREATH

Hello everyone, TODAY I am sharing with you my Pretty Paper Cone Wreath. 
I have seen lots of darling book page wreaths, and other fun paper wreaths, but when I came across  
(you got to check her’s out!) 
I new I had to make one with all the cute paper I have been collecting.Thanks Ribbon’s and Glue for inspiring me.

 HOW TO:

Start with 20 double sided 12×12 pieces of paper (you don’t have to used double sided but it does help big time.)
-cut your first set of cones to 6×6 inch squares, if you are using double sided it should be 10 pieces of paper total, because you are flipping the double sided paper and cutting another 6×6 square.
-cut your second set of paper to 4×6 pieces, I had enough from my cut 12×12 paper to cut again. Also it should be 10 sheets of paper, because again you are cutting out two pieces using both sides.
-Next I took a piece of 12×12 paper and used a salad plate to trace a circle, and then I placed a second dessert plate in the middle and traced another circle. I cut out the circle. Then I flipped it over and hot glued a small paper plate to the back. 
-I then flipped the paper circle over and started rolling my larger cones and hot gluing them together and then hot gluing them down on top of the paper. I used the smaller traced circle as my guide to hot glue them down. Finish this process until done.
-Next I took a small paper plate and hot glued the underneath rim to set on top of the bottom of the cones. I then proceeded to the next row of cones. Rolling and hot gluing them down on top of the paper plate. 
-When I was finished I hot glued down a piece of ribbon and also hot glued down another small paper plate over the ribbon for extra durability and to give it a clean finish. 
YOU ARE NOW DONE!

  14. What a great idea for a wreath. I can see this working for so many different party themes. You are so creative.

  15. Really beautiful and eye catching. Please link it with me at Wow Us Wednesday.

  16. I am in love with the idea of using scrapbook paper to make a wreath! I feel like I have a ton of it and because I don’t actually “scrapbook” I don’t ever know what to use it for. This is such a cute idea!
    If you have the time, please link up to our summer wreath link party on June 24th.
