DIY Project: Wedding Petal/Favor Paper Cone

Paper cones are easy to make and can be used for multiple things for your wedding! They can be filled with petals for your guests to toss after your ceremony, or they can be filled with goodies as a favor! You only need a few materials, so it’s a really easy way to further customize your day.


Paper Cone Template – Download (PDF)

1 sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ paper per cone
Double-sided tape

1 8″ – 10″ length of ribbon for each cone handle
2 eyelets per cone + hole-punch and eyelet setting tools
Optional Embellishments – paper lace, stickers, ribbon, paper flowers, tags

Petal fillings – rose petals, lavender, candy-covered almonds

  1. Trace template onto sheet, and cut out along heavy blue lines.
  2. Apply tape to right-side, along shaded area.
  3. Roll the cone. Hold the cone by the left edge, and roll the right side toward the left edge. Press to adhere. Be sure to make the bottom somewhat pointy. This takes a little practice, so try it a few times with scrap paper before you begin using your project paper.
  4. If you prefer a flat, closed bottom instead of a point, just fold about 1/4″-inch of the end upon itself. Use double-sided tape to secure.
  5. Trim the top of the cone to make it even. I like to use pinking shears for a decorative edge.
  6. Punch holes at the top of the cone for the ribbon handle, and set eyelets.
  7. Thread ribbon through one hole, and knot. Thread through other, and knot. Knots should be inside cone.
  8. Embellish to fit your wedding theme!
  9. Fill cone with your choice of rose petals, lavender, candy-covered almonds or some other goodie ( be creative!).
  10. Hang the cones on the back of each guest’s chair, put them all in a basket for guests to grab, or place them at their table settings. So cute!
