Tami here with a brightly colored project that is just perfect for spring.
As the weather starts to warm up, it's time to shake off the muted colors of winter and brighten up our homes with the colors of spring. And what is more "Spring-y" than flowers? I'll show you how to easily turn the Clear Scraps Large Chipboard Banner into a cone that you can hang on the wall and fill with flowers.
The Clear Scraps banner sets are great to use to make decor, holiday or party banners. But they can be used for more than that as you can see from this project.
The triangle shapes of the banner pieces make it simple to attach 3 together to make a cone. I used paint on the scalloped edge of the banner pieces, then covered the rest with printed paper. Cardstock hinges connect the pieces to form the cone.
Here is a short video that shows you how to make this cone for your own home decor.
This pretty cone would also make a special gift once you fill it with flowers. You could also cover the cone in neutral colors, then change out the flowers to match the season.
If you or a friend is planning a wedding, these cones would look beautiful on the church pews or on the chairs lining the aisle. For outdoor weddings, decorate the space by hanging them in the trees.
For the sample project, I only embellished 2 of the 3 chipboard pieces as the back of the cone is against the wall and did not need to be covered or painted. If the cones will be hung where all 3 sides will show, just embellish the third side as well.
I hope this project will help you get in the mood for Spring.
