If you are new to my blog, then you should know one thing immediately – I love Halloween. It is without a doubt my favorite holiday, and I think, in the go all out for you. Who doesn’t love candy and spooky Halloween decor?
I decided to decorate a paper cone this year, and turn them in Halloween paper spider cones. I decorated with a doily cone last year for Christmas, and I definitely needed a pair for my Halloween decor. So, how did I get you in the mood? With some scrapbook paper and a bunch of new EKSuccess tools that I have in the mail.
This is a new packaging for EKSuccess and it looks fantabulous. There are project ideas on the packaging and also QR codes. If you can use a smart phone, you can scan the QR codes to go to videos about the product. Cool, isn't it?
If you are a fan of Halloween decor as I am, take a look at my tutorial for this cone. These are so easy to make. Here’s how it’s done.

If you are wondering what to look pin the paper when you are shopping, here you are. Very Of Paper. Very cone-like.
is your first step, paint the bottom of the pin. You don’t HAVE to do this, but I like in the case of a bit of cone ends up peaking out. Allow the paint to dry.
This tool is your best friend in this project, and is actually one of my favorite tools in the world. This isn’t the first project that I’ve done with the 1″ scallop punch. I love this thing. you go, a TV or a radio for the part – you need to punch out quite a few scalloped circles from your paper. You’ll membranes will be both with you.
This is the best that I could organize – I sorted my small scalloped die-cut papers in a heap, so that I could make that know for sure what I have (and still pay).
start where ever you want on the cone – you need only to paint, some Mod-hodgepodge down, and the smooth circle to the bottom and then Mod smorgasbord of over the top. You’ll want to overlap your circles.
you’ll probably also want to turn the circles a little before Mod Podging down, if the paper is thicker. I did this and it really helped.
cover both cone and leave to dry – then you paint a layer of Mod smorgasbord of over the top. You allow it to dry.
to Use to cut the retractable knife of the paper that overlaps the bottom.
at some point I decided I would like to add a Topper on my paper cones. I used the scissors to cut off the ends.
I then small pieces of the dowel rods with black paint, painted it, added in the ends and glued them in. Then I stick ornaments glued on each side of the dowel.
One of the ornaments was a bat, the added I traced on the black paper with a stencil and cut-out – then, in the black color.
in The end my hat, I have spiders! I have this spider sticker and some of the larger spiders, which I glued to the pages.
