TEMPLATE (at the end of this post)
Cardboard Cone Shape
2 – 9″ x 12″ sheets or 1/4 yard White Felt
8″ x 3″ Bright Blue Felt like Slushie
I used one bag but it was a close one so I’d recommend two of your chosen color for safetys sake.
Cut 1 felt snowflake from blue felt , 2 background pieces from white.
Cutting the felt snowflake out is the hardest part of this process and will require some patience.
You can try tracing the snowflake outline onto you felt and apply the sequins directly but it will be much harder to keep the lines straight.

To cut centers from felt mark out the area to be cut out lightly in pencil and fold over to create an open space, work scissors around slowly until you have completely cut away the unwanted area.
Pin Down Snowflake shape to one side.
And begin attaching sequins over blue snowflake shape. For help on how to attach the sequins to felt check out our post:
After you complete the snowflake place the background pieces together.
Coat the cardboard cone with felt glue and insert inside the snowflake sleeve.
Allow to dry for about 2 hours.
