materials to make a paper cone

To make the paper cones, select and print out your fun cone paper. Cut the paper into an 8″ x 8″ square. Roll the paper into a cone with the paper on the diagonal. Use the bottom point as the point of the cone.

If you have decorative scissors use them to cut the paper.

Hot glue the seam shut.

making a paper cone for the Valentine diy

Tissue paper adds some pretty color and fluff to the Valentine DIY flower cone arrangement. And it makes just a few flowers look full and pretty!

Cut out colorful squares from the tissue. Pinch the center of the paper squares and give it a turn to make a little tissue paper puffball.

Keep the flowers in the cone fresh by cutting the stems at a 45% angle and sandwiching the stems between paper towels that have been soaked in water and floral food solution. Remember to cut the flowers to the size of the cone.

Wrap the paper towels holding the stems of the flowers securely in plastic wrap so they don’t leak.

Slip the flowers into the cone and add the tissue paper puffs.

Tie a bow around the flower cone using a pretty ribbon and put a tiny dot of hot glue under the center of the bow to hold it in place.
