Decorations - Pew / Chair Cones

Cones for flowers or petals

Submitted by Nicole Mallet
Recently I attended my nieces wedding were the guests were handed white rolled up paper in a cone shape filled with rose petals to throw at the bride and groom as they left the ceremony.  It got me thinking while sitting there how much of a nuisance it was to hold this paper cone. So I took home one of the cones and constructed something myself. With that idea, I added some pretty paper, ribbon and thought why not hang it on the chair as some decoration.Here’s how I made it. 

Cardboard to use for tracing template (I used the back of an old hard paper magazine)
Glue or double sided tape
Paper cup template (click here to download template PDF 100kb )
Paper clips
Decorative paper A4 size min

Step One
Print out the cone pattern and trace it onto a thicker piece of cardboard. Then cut out and use as a stencil for all your cones.
Step Two
Trace out all your cones using the cardboard template onto your decorative paper and cut out.
 Step Three
Put glue or double-sided tape on the back of one of the straight edges, and then roll the other edge inward to create a cone shape. Make sure there is not a big gap at the base of the cone otherwise small filling such as rice will fall out. Then get two paper clips one to go over the top and one at the base to hold the cup together so it dries and sticks properly. You will need to run your finger down on the fold as it sticks in some places and not in others. This is fiddly so be patient.
 Step Four
Cut any excess paper off the top to make the opening even.
Step FIve
Punch a hole at the top on each side of the cone and thread about 35cm of pretty ribbon through and knot off. (You'll use this to hang the cones from the ceremony chairs.)

Step 6
The last step is filling your cones with what ever you choose e.g. rose petals.

Approx cost $2.00 ea cone excluding the filling. I used scrapbooking paper Kaiser Craft; you could make this much cheaper depending on the paper you choose to use.
