I am joined by Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts in the video below as we craft with StyroFoam crafts from FloraCraft.  What would you make with a cone?  Watch below and see what we make.  Then head to Crafty Hangouts to see even more fun cone crafts.  
 

 
Watch the video above for the full instructions.  Here is a brief explanation if you miss any of the instructions in the video:
 
  1. Cut a StyroFoam ball in half and add to the top of the cone with hot glue.
  2. Cut a piece of felt into a funky or fun shape and stick into the top.  Secure with a little hot glue.
  3. Start wrapping at the very top with orange yarn.  The top will need to be secured in a few places with hot glue so it does not slide off.  After that you can wrap the rest rapidly without securing.
  4. At the bottom use hot glue and quite a bit of yarn to create a carrot “tip”.
  5. Wrap a frame in burlap or strips of any fabric for a wreath form.
  6. Tie the carrot on with jute twine and secure with a little hot glue as well to hold in place.
  7. Tie on a fun spring saying to your wreath as well.
  8. Hang on your door.

Duct Tape Flowers Wreath for Summer

Add a quick summer touch to your front door with my Duct Tape Flowers Wreath.  This easy wreath will greet your guests in style.  Read on to make your own version of this great wreath.  Yep I even show you how to make those flowers out of duct tape!  

duct tape flowers wreath


Start with any picture frame (mine was already covered in some white fabric).  Add in some colorful fabric and duct tape and you are ready to get started. 

duct tape flowers wreath

Tear your fabric into strips and wrap around your frame.  Cover the frame completely then use a dot of hot glue to secure the end of your fabric. 

duct tape flowers wreath

Now it is time to break out that duct tape.  We are going to start by making a duct tape flower.  You will need a small square of duct tape plus one long strip.

duct tape flowers wreath

Fold your long strip over about 2/3 of the way as shown below.  Also as shown below, it does not have to be perfect.  :)

duct tape flowers wreath

Gather your long strip onto your square as shown below.  Continue wrapping around and around until you run out of strip.  The longer the strip, the closer to the outside of the square you can start, and the larger your flower will be.

You will end up with a gathered flower something like this.

The back does not look as pretty but we are not worried about that!  Note that if any of your “square” peeks out around the edge of your flower, just fold under to hide it.

Now attach those flowers to your wreath with hot glue.

I also added a couple of buttons to the center of my flower.  They added just the right amount of bling.

Now we need to make that duct tape “Welcome” banner.  You will need string (I used baker’s twine), duct tape, and foam letters.

Start with a square of duct tape and fold it into a point as shown.

Then fold the sides of your square in to make a mini pennant flag.

Add your foam letters to each pennant flag.
