12 x 12 scrapbook cardstock paper (double sided is best!)
Another piece of patterned paper that will go well with your cone paper
Chip board letters, mod podge & glitter OR Sparkley cardstock paper
ribbon for hanging
Start by twisting/folding over your paper into a tube shape then tighten the pull on the bottom part until it makes a cone shape with a small opening at the bottom. Do your best to line the cross over in the front with the peak in the back. This is tricky but keep at it, it can be done :)
When you get your desired shape, tape or hot glue your paper into place.
Now just add the ruffle to the bottom!
Step 5 & 6: Repeat step 3 by gluing and gathering your streamer into a little bunch.
Step 7: Cut a few small lines into the bunch and fluff it out.
Step 8: Add some hot glue to the top of the ruffle and stick it into the opening at the bottom of the cone.
These are probably one of my favorite holiday decorations! I remember as a kid always checking my Christmas stalking on the days leading to Christmas just to see if Santa may have had time for a quick little stop. I still totally remember those feelings and it is so much fun being a mom now and getting to watch my kids experience those same exciting feelings not only at Christmas but Easter time too!
Happy Easter to all!
May the Easter Bunny always have a spare minute to visit your house early too!
