paper cones are a sweet way to gift a little “something”!
What seems like forever ago – but was really just like 1 or 2 weeks – I wanted to drop some baked goods off for a few friends.
And now I’m not supposed to leave my house. So those baked goods are in my freezer.
But I still wanted to drop things off, so I decided that May Day would come early this year.
May Day started back in the 19th century, when people would wrap flowers in paper and hang them on friends’ and neighbors’ doors as a way to welcome the warm weather. It’s traditionally celebrated on May 1st, but honestly? We need May Day NOW – and I love making paper cones.
Paper cones are seriously easy, and can be made from any scrap of paper you have lying around! Here’s how:
Cut a piece of paper to any size square – I made these 7″.
Turn the square so one point is on top, then punch 3 holes along the right and left sides (about 1″ apart; it doesn’t have to be exact). Glue, staple or tape the cone to keep it intact.
Weave a piece of string, twine or yarn through the holes, and leave some slack in the back for hanging.
And there you have it! Add a tag if you like, then fill with flowers, candies, small toys, even some budding branches from your yard. This is a perfect activity to do with the kids (because they’re STILL HOME), and will truly brighten someone’s day.
Because we can ALL use a little brightening right now, don’t you think?
