After so much brainstorming, I have finally finished my first DIY project for the wedding. Here is a little twist on the wedding cones I mentioned a while ago. You can see the original inspiration here.
Here is what you will need for this project:
- 12 in. doilies
- ribbon in the color of your choice
- scotch tape
First, cut the doily into fourths.
Next, role them into a cone and secure with a bit of scotch tape.
If you want you can be done after this step, but after making a few cones, I decided something was missing so I added a bit of ribbon for a splash of color.
Cut the ribbon into strips about 12-14 in long.
Then, weave the ribbon in and out at the base of the lace design and secure with a bow.
Here is the finished product!
I cant wait to see how it will all come together on the day of the wedding with the cones filled with white rose petals and stored in cute baskets just waiting for our guests to use for our ceremony exit!
This project is probably one of the most simple and basic you can accomplish. You only need minimal arts and crafts abilities and it is very inexpensive as well. I got the doilies from Michaels (in the cake section) for about $1.99 for a pack of six and you can make 24 cones from one pack. (I bought 5 packs) The spools of ribbon were only about .50 cents each and I bought four. The scotch tapes was just some I already had laying around the house. So after making a little over a hundred cones I only spent about $14.
