The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Doily Cone Ornament:
Measure and cut the four 12-inch lengths of curling ribbon. For this version, we used three
different colors; red, green and gold; for the front of the doily. The fourth ribbon for the hanging loop was
green. Examples below show using one color of ribbon.
Fold the paper doily in half with the wrong sides together.
Bend the paper doily in half again and make a small crease just at the center of the doily.
Form the point of the Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Cone Ornament around the center of the
doily. The edges should meet with one inside the cone and one outside. The clothespins are not necessary, but they
come in handy for photography or if you need to put down the project for any reason.
Select three of the four ribbons. Thread them through the doily's holes in all thicknesses on both
sides of the seam of the cone. Each side of the seam has four thicknesses of paper doily.

doily. Tie a knot in the ribbons near the Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Cone Ornament.
