For your Christmas table: Make a Scrappy Christmas Cone

Today’s Scrappy Christmas Cone is the last “Scrappy Christmas Craft” from Rebekah Meier. This week, Rebekah also shared her Retro Fabric Christmas Wreath and Scrappy Christmas Wreath. They’re all super easy to make, and a pretty way to display all of the bits and pieces of fabrics and trims that you couldn’t bear to throw out. Make one or make all three!

What a pretty collection of easy, stash-busting Christmas crafts. CraftsnCoffee.com.

These Scrappy Christmas Cones would be so pretty on my mantel, or maybe my Christmas table.

To make a Scrappy Christmas Cone, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” x 5” cone
  • Fabrics:
    • ½ yd. muslin
    • Scraps of fabric, ribbon, lace, ric rac, organza, etc.
  • Candlestick
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins

To make a Scrappy Christmas Cone:

1. Tear muslin into 1” strips. Pin and wrap a strip around the cone. Continue pinning and wrapping the strips around the cone till it’s covered.

2. Cut a 2” square from muslin or other fabric. Place on top of the cone, and pin and glue the edges down onto the sides of the cone.

3. Tear fabric scraps into 1 1/2” strips. Fold strips in half and tie around the cone. Strips can be wrapped around the cone several times. Trim ends as you go.

Pretty details from the Scrappy Christmas Cone on CraftsnCoffee.com. Great stash buster craft!

Layer on the fabrics and trims — there’s no wrong way to decorate this cone.

4. Tie strips of lace and ribbon around the cone.

5. Tear organza into 1-1/2” strips and tie around the cone.

6. Glue cone to the candlestick.

I'd like a group of these Scrappy Christmas Cones on my mantel, or maybe my Christmas table.

Have you switched gears from Halloween to Christmas yet? Or, are you still immersed in everything orange, black and pumpkin?

Have a fun weekend.

Happy crafting.

    I love these scrappy projects! I’ve got a small collection of some vintage trims I’ve been hoarding. They would look wonderful on these crafts. Oh, I finished two Halloween totems! My daughter stole one 🙂 That’s ok, one was hers anyway.

      This would be a beautiful way to display your vintage trims. I hope you get a chance to make your own Scrappy Cone — I’d love to see it. I’d love to see your Halloween Totems, too — do you have a photo you can share? If so, please share it on our Facebook page @CraftsnCoffee. Happy crafting! Sharon
