Christmas Cone Decor

Okay, so I can finally show y'all what I made this weekend with the beautiful December kit!

I started by using the turquoise Scenic Route paper and rolling it into a cone, and then I cut the white doily in half and adhered it on. The backside of the cone isn't too pretty- I left all the ends fairly raw back there, because I knew no one would see it. If you are making one that you know people will see the back side, I might wrap the doily all the way around and layer it.


I also cut a strip off of the Scenic Route paper that has the green polka dots on it- tore the bottom edge and then adhered it on the top. Red gorgeous trim goes on top of that. Then embellish with tulle and other little bits! I filled mine with seasonal greenery from my Grams' yard (including sage & thyme- it smells so good!), but you could also fill it with little goodies, Christmas ornaments, gifts, etc. This would look really cute hanging on a doorknob too!

Virginia, I saw this in real life at the store, and it is more AWESOME than shown in this picture! I didn't realize how big it was. Very cute!
