Holiday Joy Cone ~

I really enjoyed my Believe Banner project last week, that this weekend I decided to carry the look to my next project.

I grabbed my Goodwill sheet music and off I went...

I ripped out a few pages, tore along all the edges and glued them in to place on my cone (this one I bought awhile back, but you can pick them up at Michaels or any other big craft store).
I pulled out my wonderful jeweled ribbon from Michaels and hot glued it to the top - I forgot how much I LOVE my hot glue gun - burns and all!
I picked up some "holiday" ribbon also at Michaels recently and glued that baby on as well.


One more piece...

Then attached a larger piece of ribbon to the sides with my glue gun.

Printed off "JOY" on my computer,
Turned to my favorite Distress Ink, added a few jewels and attached my tag.


For the bottom of the cone, I used this very scary pointy-thingy and poked a large hole in the bottom where all of the paper came together. I then used my - yes hot glue gun again - and glued the jewel and some more ribbon on.

and ta-da...


I linked this project up to DIY Day over at A Soft Place to Land. I can't wait to check out all of the great ideas over there!

Beautiful! I thought about making something like this but didn't even think about using one of those cardboard cones. Much sturdier than just trying it with paper which is what I would have done and I don't think it would have been all that sturdy! Thanks for the How-to!
