DIY Fall Floral Cones

Last fall we were lucky enough to be a part of Patrick and Rose’s crisp fall Pocono’s Wedding. The day was painted with the orange hues of the changing leaves, handmade paper flowers, and farmhouse style lanterns.

Rather than a traditional petal throw during the ceremony, the aisle was lined with preserved leaves. ┬áDuring the recessional the guest’s threw small amounts of the leaves from handmade cones, which made for the perfect fall photos.

We have a step by step tutorial on how to make these cones below! Remember although we used leaves, this would be perfect for a variety of items (confetti, petals, etc…)
