Paper Cone Garland…

I have been working on this post for nearly 2 weeks. Finally, today I was able to finish up my photo shoot and put together this tutorial.

I’m kind of obsessed with garlands these days. Lately, I’ve been challenging myself  to use items I already have around the house. Yes, I’m dipping into my craft hoard and actually using some of my supplies.
