This flower cone doesn't flop (see previous post). The difference is to have the ribbon on either side of it rather than in the back. This only took and hour to make .... not bad .... and I've discovered that crepe paper is a really great embellishment for that Victorian kind of look.
So this project used: a music sheet, crepe paper, ric-rac ribbon, a gold pipe cleaner, glitter, ribbon, gold stars, a snowflake ornament and a vintage Christmas St. Nick sticker.
I'm planning to surprise a friend by leaving it on her front door doorknob - like you would do with a May basket on May 1st.
I've seen these on etsy and in fancy gift shops and knew it wouldn't be hard to make my own. In fact, Martha Stewart has a very easy tutorial to follow (click HERE). For picture taking purposes, I have it one my front door - but it actually flops around too much to stay there. Now it's hanging indoors over the corner of a picture frame. It was pretty easy to make, looks pretty special and would be a terrific gift for anyone who likes old fashioned or Victorian Christmas things.
