I have had the most fun working on this pretty project! I bought the stems (that I have always wanted but couldn't afford) at Michael's because I had 70% off!! That's the only reason I could get the ones I always wanted! I'm telling you, watch the ads, wait and go in when you have a extra percentage off coupon pulled up on your smartphone! I thought I bought them to make my Spring into Summer Wreath for my front door. As I was working, separating the stems, I realized how much sheer volume I had and quickly was aware that I could make more than just the wreath out of them! Woohoo!! So my brain started racing with ideas of what else I could do with this abundance of beauty!
Across the table from me, was this beautiful antiques script scrapbook paper, (one of my favorites!) that I had left over from an earlier project and directly in front of me was my spool of natural twine!! well, that's all there was to it! I had to make a floral cone that I could hang in the house too! I should tell you that this was a very simple cone roll of the paper, glue or double stick tape the seam in the back. Just as you would make a frosting bag. Punch your holes for the twine to go through. I do put tape on the inside and outside of where I'm punching my holes to give it the strength needed.
These are the florals that I bought for, what will be two rather large projects! Grand total for all this beauty was $15.78!! So, I couldn't say "make your own for under $15 really. But considering that it took less than half for the cone and I have plenty for the wreath I can say, Look what you can make for under $8!! Better, yet, right?!
I bought these wonderful little wooden hearts a few weeks ago from Pick Your Plum for 10/$3.99 just because I knew they would come in handy. I had no idea how soon. :)
I have tried to include as many views, really as I could to give you a pretty good idea of how it looks. Different settings and amounts of light, filtered and regular. This is the final image of My floral cone in it's proper place (for the next few months, anyway!)
This is my view now of it from my desk in my room. What wonderful smiles it brings me! What's bringing you joy around your house?
I hope that you all are taking time to celebrate the changes of the seasons and find some way to make it special in your home and garden or even on your door. I hope that you will enjoy this as much as I am. Even though, I made this pretty little cone for my home, don't you think it would be a great Mother's Day gift or a May Day surprise for a friend?! Think I'm going to make another one to bless a friend's home.

That looks just lovely hanging on your wall. Did you say how you hung it? Did you have any kind of liner in the paper or did you just go with what ya had? Beautiful floral cone!ReplyDelete
Hi, Dana! Thank you for your kind comment. Yes, I did say how I hung it. About the middle of the 1st paragraph. I used tape on both the inside & outside of the paper, in the back, before punching the wholes. That seemed to be enough for this weight of florals. I hope you make one for yourself!Delete

Congrats on being featured this week on Inspire Me Monday. It's nice to meet you. Now, let me say, this floral cone is really gorgeous! I use to love DIY projects like this, but honestly I haven't done anything like it in years. My interests migrated to making hand-stamped cards, but I don't do that nearly as much as I once did. You are quite talented and have a natural eye. I know it gives you lots of joy to create and enjoy your handy work. Have inspiration filled week!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Cathy, your kind comment means so much! So nice to meet you, too! I'm so glad you found me! Yes, I do love what I do! If you have any recent projects please come back and share them with me @ my party! It starts Thursday night @10/7pm pst. May you have an Inspired week, as well!Delete

Very pretty Theresa! Thanks for linking with Home Sweet Home!ReplyDelete
Very Beautiful Theresa, and what a nice door ornament it makes. Lovely!ReplyDelete
Love the lil heart dangling off of it too.
Oh Theresa, that's so pretty! I make flower cones, and I even blogged about making them, but I have never thought to put flowers in there! I don't know how I didn't think of that. (I usually stuff ours with treats, lol!) I just love this, and I think I may even have some similar paper in my stash. Everything about your flower cone is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Pam! 💕Delete
This is so pretty, Theresa! I love the paper you chose for the cone and the florals are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Marie! Blessings to you and yours! xoDelete
