Crafty Tuesday - Cute Cones

Today's craft (yep, it's Crafty Tuesday again here on the blog) couldn't be simpler. Won't even take the magic 15 minutes!! ;)


You'll need:
  • paper or carton
  • scissors
  • glue, gluestick, gluegun or stickytape
  • pencil or pen

Draw circles (use a cup or small plate as a guide) on the paper or carton and cut out. I used a pair of zigzag scissors to give some of them a fancy edge.




Gently roll the circle into a cone and glue down the front edges.




Cut out a length of paper (should be at least the diameter of the starting circle) to make the handle. Dab glue on each end and stick inside the cone.




You can then decorate them according to the occasion. We made yellow ones today for our Danish Easter decoration... Gather branches, hang the cones, feathers and eggs on your 'tree'.




DD7 filled the cones today with feathers. But in the week up to Easter we will replace the feathers with...chocolate or marcipan eggs! ;)




Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! :)

Thanks for the tute! My DS6 will have fun with this. We have to be careful with feathers though, the dog has waaay too much fun when she "borrows" a few!

Happy Tuesday! Or is it now Wednesday?
