Patriotic Paper Craft

A fun easy way to decorate for July 4th is using paper crafts. Try this simple cone wreath to add some patriotic Flair to your BBQ this weekend! This one is on my TO DO list!
Wanna try it? Here's what you'll need

Double-sided tape
4 (5- by 6-inch) pieces each of red, white, and blue card stock
Cardboard, cut into a 10-inch circle, plus more for a star (we used a cereal box)
Clear tape
Tacky glue
Aluminum foil

To make a paper cone, place a strip of double-sided tape along the shorter edge of a piece of card stock. Roll the paper as shown, then press to adhere. Repeat with the remaining sheets of card stock.

Place a strip of double-sided tape on the back of each cone. Lay the cones in alternating colors on the cardboard circle and press to adhere. Turn the wreath over and secure each cone to the back with a piece of clear tape
