Sometimes, the crafts I make are so easy, I’m almost embarrassed to share them. Like these DIY Plaid Flannel Cones. The tutorial is just two steps, and you could probably make these just by looking at them. I’m o.k. with easy, and I really like these Plaid Flannel Cones. They look great when paired with my Farmhouse-Style Plaid Winter Wreath. Crafts don’t have to be rocket science, right?
To make Plaid Flannel Cones, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 9” and 6” cones, or other sizes of your choice
- Plaid flannel, ¼ yd. is enough for both cones
- Thick, white craft glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; straight pins; optional: rotary cutter and matt
To make Plaid Flannel Cones:
1. Cut flannel into 1-1/4” wide strips.
2. Pin and glue one strip along the bottom edge of the cone. Begin twisting the strip. Start to wrap the cone with the twisted strip, pinning and gluing the strip in place. Continue twisting the fabric strip, and wrapping the cone till it’s covered. Once glue dries, remove the pins.
I had a lot of plaid flannel leftover after making my Farmhouse-Style Plaid Winter Wreath, and that’s what inspired me to make the cones.
Here’s another idea for leftover plaid fabric. Patty Schaffer made these Mad for Plaid Ornaments with old shirts, but you could use your fabric scraps as well.
I still have extra plaid flannel in my stash. What would you make with the leftover fabric?
