Creating Keepsakes creative editor and Studio 5 contributor Megan Hoeppner shows how to use recycled book pages, or old sheet music to make your own paper cone wreaths. Plus, take inspiration from a Studio 5 bonus idea: the paper cone pom!

Looking for an easy-to-make home décor idea? Here are a few ideas that will get your creativity on a roll! I created this wreath from recycled music paper, a little spray ink, a doily, and some patterned paper from Making Memories.

Here’s how to create a cone wreath:

1. Cut squares from your paper(s) of choice. For this wreath, I cut 6″ x 6″ squares. Turn squares into cones by forming a point and gluing in place with a liquid adhesive.

2. Fold your squares into a cone shape, forming a point at one end, and glue the cone into place with a liquid adhesive.

3. Glue your cones together, and a wreath shape will naturally start to form.

4. Give your wreath structure by adhering a piece of cardboard to the back.

5. Dress up the center of your wreath. I used some tulle, a spray-misted doily, an accordion flower, and a rhinestone.

Shanon, a creative Club CK peep, inspired me with her creation (below). Isn’t it stunning? She created it using digital papers from Echo Park’s Apothecary line. Yum!

 

Why stop at Halloween when you can easily modify this design for any holiday or season? What a treat!

For another variation idea, check out my blog, where I share a wreath I made from dictionary paper.
