Flower Cones




  • Medium-weight paper
  • Decorative scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Hole punch


  1. Step 1

    To make flower cones, cut medium-weight paper into a 7-inch square. Use decorative scissors to scallop edge and a pencil to form tip.

  2. Step 2


    Secure outer flap of cone with craft glue. Punch six holes, 1 inch apart, beginning at top front center; thread 20-inch length of 1/2-inch-wide ribbon through holes. Tie bow at front, and leave a 7-inch loop at the back.

    My Mom made similar May baskets for my sister and me over 70 years ago! We put candy in the bottom and Spring flowers in the top. Made them of two colors of tissue paper. Fun memories.

    I did this one year and hung them on the doors of elderly persons or people who were alone. I added a wrapped cookie. They were received with great joy!

    These crafts and projects can make someone's day, wouldn't it?

  • Noircat 12 May, 2009

    I would put my flowers in a "flower tube" like you receive from the florist.

    How do we add flowers and keep them living? Any suggestions?

  • belovedofgd 2 May, 2009

    Yes, it sure would have been nice to have it the day least! I will file it away for next year, tho :)

  • janbintx 2 May, 2009

    True, but these are also fun for Christmas ornaments and little hostess gifts during the rest of the year.

  • lori3 2 May, 2009

    too true!!! but better late than never!!

  • dietpepsi 1 May, 2009

    I completely agree. This has been a chronic problem - ideas are sent too late to be of use.

  • my2daisies 1 May, 2009

    This is lovely but too late to be able to use this design. I had my May Day baskets prepared and delivered by 8:00. Please send ideas prior to the holiday.
