Crafted by Billie Jo.

Supplies

  • Paper Cone

1.  Apply hot glue to the top of the cone to secure one end of the twine to the cone, then begin wrapping the twine around the entire cone.

2.  Once you reach the bottom, use hot glue to secure the end to the cone.
3.  Use hot glue to adhere one end of the garland to the top of the cone, then begin wrapping it around the cone until you reach the bottom.

For this project, Billie Jo painted wooden buttons with acrylic paint to glue to the cone, however, you can use any buttons you would like.
