This is a quick and easy way to make a cone from a cereal box. I know, so simple it’s practically a no brainer but I always try to use things I have before I buy something new. I needed something to hold the feathers and stems on my fall mantel and used this cone as part of the focal point of the mantel. Wrapping it in burlap I had in my stash added a different texture to the mantel but you could use any fabric.
Use a cereal box to create the cone shape and tape it together. Then roll the burlap around the cone. You might need to tape the burlap to the cone to keep it from slipping.
I stapled around the open edge to really secure it. Next I folded over the pointed edge and wrapped it with twine. Wrapping it with twine made glue unnecessary.
Here’s the finished project. This little cone craft could be used as a teepee, cornucopia, Christmas tree, even a witches hat. It’s amazing what you can come up with from such a simple project! I have a feeling I’ll be making more cone crafts.
Here’s a closer look. I really like it!
