Holiday Cheer Cone Wreath

Wreaths are a great way to add color and design to any décor.  This Holiday Cheer cone wreath would make a nice addition to a small apartment, nursing home or hospital room because of its smaller size.   It will surely bring joy to everyone who sees it this holiday season.

Scallop Circle

To begin this wreath, you will need to punch approximately 31 scalloped circles using a scallop circle punch (the 2 ¼” scallop punch by Ek Success was used for this wreath) using a patterned paper.  Graphic 45’s Twas the Night Before Christmas paper line was used for this wreath.

Wrap

Wrap the circle around the end of an embossing tool using the smaller part on the tool as a guide to create the smaller end of the cone.

Formed Circle

This is how it is formed once it is removed from the tool.

Glue End

Roll the circle back making sure to form the cone shape and add a line of glue (Aleene’s Tacky Glue used here) along the edge of the roll and continue to roll it closed.

Create More

Glue

Begin to form a circle using the natural shape of the cone to guide the circular form.  Lightly flatten each piece so that the sides have a slight crease to help them lay closer to each other.  Add a line of glue down the crease and adhere them together.  You may have to hold them close until the glue is set.  Do not move the circle at this point as it is not strong enough to hold together.  You can, also, choose to use a hot glue gun and glue sticks for a quick, strong hold.  Allow it to dry while you are doing the next few steps.

Sentiment

Run a piece of white cardstock through a die cut machine using a frame style die (Fancy Label Tags One by Spellbinders is shown here).  Stamp the sentiment (Christmas Greetings stamps by Inkadinkado) in black ink using an acrylic block.

Add some glue to the back of each piece and attach it to the wreath.  Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and glue it so that the sentiment is tucked behind the bow a little.  For another look tie two or more colors of ribbon together to add additional color to the wreath.

Add a hanger by gluing a piece of Baker’s Twine (Green by We R Memory Keepers) to the back to finish it off.

Give the gift of joy to someone you know this holiday season with this cute little cone wreath.  Then, continue creating them during other holidays just by changing the patterned paper.  There’s always a good time to give the gift of a wreath.  They aren’t just for Christmas anymore!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
