I set out to make my own cones and had quite a time figuring it out! Who knew it could be so hard?!?! I looked online, but didn't find it to be especially helpful. I found on Pinterest someone who will tell you how to make them, I was excited and even repinned before I realized you had to buy her pattern. Bummer. I thought I must be smart enough to figure this out without having to pay someone! I questioned my intelligence MANY times while figuring out this VERY SIMPLE process. Anyway, I hope this helps!
Now, I can make as many cones as I want in any size that I want! Hooray!!
I have two video tutorials, which I hope you find helpful!
How to Make a Cone:
How to Make a Really Big Cone:
You will need:
- Poster board
- Hot glue or tape - if you decorated right over it, you will never see the tape!
For a cone, you need either a semi- circle or a quarter of a circle. With poster board, you can have overlap, but if you were doing foam, because of its thickness, you would want it to butt right up to itself and you would need a quarter circle then.
Take the string and tie it on the pencil. Put the end of the string on the edge of the poster board and draw a semi-circle. Cut it out and roll it together to make your cone. Carefully glue it with your hot glue, or tape it.
Hope it is helpful! Now you can make a bunch of cones or one big cone for less than a $1.00!
Yay! Thanks for stopping by!
