Tutorial how to make holiday cone decorationsStep 1: Cut a large arc across a piece of Cindy Lou Glitter Cardstock. Roll it into a cone shape and glue it together.
Step 2: Punch a hole on each side, near the top, and tie a coordinating ribbon to it to make a handle.
Step 3: Crumple tissue paper, add a little adhesive and stuff it into the bottom of the cone.
Step 4: Make two rosettes with the reverse side of Cindy Lou Dots Glitter Cardstock and the Cindy Lou Glitter Cardstock. If you have never made rosettes before, here's a tutorial. Add glitter glue to the edges. After they are dry, layer them atop one another and adhere together.
Step 5: Fussy cut a present from the Cindy Lou Presents Cardstock and adhere to center of rosettes. Make a bow with gold cording and adhere to the present.
Step 6: Make the seam of the cone less noticeable by adhering a image that you fussy cut from holiday ephemera.
Step 7: Add assorted Christmas decorations to the inside of the cone. I created a musical theme by adding a Santa holding a trumpet figurine, brass jingle bells, a miniature horn as well as a white bottlebrush tree, glitter pinecones, lace, berries and flowers.
Step 8: Add a decorative element to the base of the cone.
