Stunning Paper Cone Wreath

One day in December I was arranging all my henna cones and was getting ready to participate in a local craft festival.

Around the glass plate, I arranged all the black colored cones with their picture on top, all the tips pointing in the center -almost seeming to burst out and expand towards the circumference.  I was quite happy about its simplicity, yet intrigued by its form…

The form showed uniformity…. cohesion…. and created a unified circular creation.

There is something magical about circles.  Since ancient times, circle is regarded as a universal symbol that signifies unity, shows the wholeness of a being.

Many people also think it is a form of female energy source.  It could be true!  Look at the main figures in our families.  Many a times we find most of the members, youngest to the oldest, are bound together by the strange thread of love that pours from the mother figure.  Everybody surrounds her and wants to share with her what happened through the day, what has she missed….

I felt the henna cones bring this exquisite feminine spirit.  So I decided to make it into a something that I can display the energy.

My Handsome Little Boy loved the idea and we both started fiddling around.  We arranged these cones in different forms and shapes and loved it when it appeared like a wreath!

Voila!  There was a class perfectly suitable for the tiny fingers and patient minds.

Lots of old fiction books came in handy to be rolled.

Just keep rolling… Just keep rolling….

Bravo to those little hands to create these stunning wreaths!

There was a lot of hard work that went in the making of this wreath, lot of finger work to keep the cones rolling, lot of focus to make them all look alike, and lastly, a lot of patience to make so many cones in a short time!!!

This wreath couldn’t have been complete without the Christmas decorations.  Our home Sparkled with this stunning creation!

Lovingly,

Maithili.
