How to Make 4th of July Craft: Paper Cone Décor
- Colored craft papers – red, blue and white
- Craft glue
- Select 2 colors from red, blue and white. Take craft papers of the 2 selected colors and cut them into square shapes (size of your choice). You will need to prepare 8 squares for each color. Now select the third color and create a spiral pattern with it, we’ll be making spiral rolled flower with this one.
- Take any one of the square cutouts.
- Hold the square and hold any one of the corners. Bring that corner towards the middle of the square and hold it firmly in its position.
- Now bring the opposite corner towards the same middle part of the square and overlap the previous corner’s side of the square.
- Apply glue on the overlapped part to secure the cone shape.
- Similarly prepare the rest of the cones from the square cutouts. Cut out a round shape from any colored craft paper.
- Grab any set of paper cones and attach them on the round cutout by sticking the closed end on the round cutout.
- Continue to stick the cones on the round base until all 8 cones (from one set) are attached.
- Grab the other set of cones and this time; stick them between the previous cones, but slightly below them (more towards the center of the round base).
- Finally, cut out another small round shape from the same colored paper used for the spiral pattern. Attach the round cutout on the center of the cone décor. Create rolled flower with the spiral cutout. Attach the spiral flower on the center of the cone décor.
