Vintage Christmas Cone


I’ve got the tree up here at the old homestead….and a few bit’s and pieces out to make it feel like the holidays. Now time to create lot’s of handcrafted ornaments and decor items to finish decking the halls. I’m sharing a vintage styled cone today that we are making as part of our class for tonight. Along with other Christmasy goodies : )

IMG_2648Hard to tell in this picture…but it’s actually a nice large sized cone. I created the cone itself out of sturdy cardstock…then layered on vintage sheet music.

IMG_2651At the top I added a super chunky creamy colored fringe and silvery tinsel trim.

IMG_2652There was plenty of room for some larger embellishments like a paper rosette, glittery leaf for a little sparkle and a  coordinated ball ornament…aged to perfection. A loopy bow of taupe ribbon to gracefully hang over the edge.

IMG_2650There is a charming little tiny book with it’s pages curled as the backdrop for the vintagy Santa image. Held open with tiny clips. I used a beautiful Brown Gingham trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon to hang the cone.

This should be a fun project to work on tonight…the girlies do love the 3d projects. Assuming we don’t wind up glued to the table lol. For tomorrows post I’ll be sharing some Thanksgiving Tag Freebie Printables perfect for place cards, decor, or to add to a hostess gift. All you’ll have to do is print them, cut them and add a pretty bow. Oh and Stickels and ink are always a good idea.

That’s it for me today I’m off to get ready for class : ) I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative 🙂 G
