If you have ever seen a water cooler in an office or school, you will notice that they usually have cone-shaped cups. Also, you might see cone cups if you ever get a snow-cone...the shaved ice is placed in the cone and different flavored syrups are sprayed on the top of the ice. Yummy! Well, anyway, these are the sort of cups that we will use in the crafts listed on this page. The work great for crafts that require a cone or pyramid-like shape. Have fun crafting!
A water cooler cone cup is the base of this Christmas angel figurine. She comes out beautiful and she will be the spotlight of your Christmas decorations. Start off by cutting 2 inches off the tip of the cone-shaped cup. Leave a small tab on each side as in picture A above. You will want to make the angel's clothes look pretty, so use colorful paper (or even metallic / gold ) over the cone cup. You can also glue a paper doily over her.Cut a piece of pipe cleaner for her arms and glue it around the top of the cone. For her song book, fold a piece of paper in half and then put in her hands. Either use a doily or colorful paper for her wings. Cut it out in the shape of the wings you see in Picture B above. Paste the wings on the back of the angel body. Paste a ping pong ball to the 2 tabs (from picture A) . You can make the curls from a dish scouring pad or from yarn. Paint the face on the front of the ball.
