For the top of your cone tree, don’t glue the cones to the wrapping paper roll. Therein lies madness. Trust. Tried it that way, and was glad the kids were asleep for all the cussing I did trying putting it together. Instead, take a few of your cones and glue the edges together near the top until you have a complete circle of cones just like this.
This triangle of cones will pop on the top of your wrapping paper roll perfectly. I didn’t glue this piece to the roll itself. Transporting the tree is a tad easier when you are able to take the top off and grab onto something without crushing any of the paper.
To finish off the tree, add a big bow (or star, or whatever strikes your creative fancy.) This oversized glittery bow was picked up at Hobby Lobby.
Dazzle your neighbors, your kids’ classroom and show off some crafty skills. Whip up a few giant paper cone trees for your next party decorating project!
