Make a Victorian Flower Cone

I made these Victorian-inspired flower cones using a dollar store party hat and ribbon! This was such a fun way to play with my leftover ribbon, trim, buttons and broken jewelry, and it's an activity you can customize to whoever is working on it. Kids can decorate the party hats with stickers, while adults can do a more elaborate version like my Victorian version. Use these cones to hold flowers (especially on May 1st, May Day) that you can give to your lucky friends. Get the tutorial I posted over at [Amazing Moms]

These would be amazing wedding decorations any time of the year!

Project Estimate:

  • Party hats, 8 for $1
  • Acrylic craft paint, on hand
  • Ribbon and trim, on hand
  • Buttons, jewelry, etc., on hand
  • Craft glue, on hand

Total: $.13 each!

p.s. These look awesome hanging from my shabby chic hooks!

Bonus idea: Turn them upside-down and use them for fancy birthday party hats!

    These are a LOT of fun! My family made these in Christmas colors for our Thanksgiving craft one year and hung them on our trees. We used a lot of glitter-covered faux ferns and silk poinsettias for the insides. My sister made hers in blue and silver and white, hung snowflakes on strands of beads, and kept hers on her front door all winter. Thanks for sharing!
