Paper cones are a stunning and inexpensive way to decorate the sides of the wedding aisle – whether you fill them with fresh flowers, confetti, snacks or church programmes.

A while ago we posted a DIY project for making cones out of square pieces of coloured paper – which you can view here – so today we thought we’d take it from a different angle: DIY cones using paper doilies.

You will need:

  • Paper doilies
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Clothes pegs
  • Thin twine

Now to get creative:

  • Start off by folding the doily in half and cutting along the fold – one doily will make two cones.
  • Take one half of the doily and gently fold it in half.
  • Using the fold as your middle point, roll the doily by sliding one half of the flat side over the other to form the cone.
  • Finally, apply a thin line of glue one edge to keep it all together. Use a wash peg to keep it in place.
  • Weave a piece of string through one of the eyelets in the doily edge and make a little noose to hang the cone with.
