- Choose your vintage image. Print image on white cardstock and spray with fixative.
- Taking the 12 x 12 paper, wrap paper around cone and mark inside with pencil for a cutting guide.
- Unroll paper from cone and cut on your pencil lines. After cutting, your paper should look like a rounded triangle.
- Apply glue to back of paper and wrap paper around cone. Smooth out using your fingers. Using a craft knife, trim excess paper from top of cone.
- Paint inside and top edge of cone. I only painted about 2-3” into the cone as the cone will be filled.
- Once paint is dry, drill hanging holes into cone.
- Using the Cricut and the SCAL file, cut the frames out of Grungepaper. If you don’t have Cricut/SCAL, use a similar chipboard frame. Paint the bottom frame’s opening and edge as shown below. Bottom frame piece has the smaller circle opening.
- Glue the frames together and when dry, glue and glitter the top and sides of the frame.
- Place the vintage image behind the frame and cut it to fit. Glue image to back of frame.
- Cut crepe paper into two 18” strips. Create a ruffle by pleating and hot gluing around the top of the cone. It helps to use a compass to mark an even pencil line around the edge of the cone so that the crepe paper will be glued on straight. Leave about a ½” of crepe paper showing above the rim of the cone.
- Using the Distress Ink, gently brush over folds and top of ruffle. Press portion of ruffle above the cone back gently.
- Using hot glue, attach the lace to the bottom edge of the crepe paper ruffle.
- Gently bend the frame and using hot glue, attach to the cone.
- Using the craft knife, carefully cut through the crepe paper covering the drilled handle holes. Gently pull each end of the ribbon through those holes and knot.
- Slice off a small piece of the tip of the cone and insert the string end of the tassel. Hot glue to hold.
- Add jewel embellishments as desired.
- Stuff cone with tissue paper and place florals in the top of the cone. Hot glue if necessary to hold in place. Hang and enjoy!
