Creative PaperClay® Link Party Project by Lulu Lancaster

Hello it is LuLu and welcome to my Creative PaperClay® Link Party Project!

I have been creating these cones for a few years now and have them in colors to match every season. They are super easy to make light weight and will add height to any area in your home that needs a little bit :)

So here we go!

You will need the following:

 one paper mache cone
a package of Delight ™ Air dry Modeling Compound 
acrylic paint
1 paint brush
ribbon and lace
a clay roller


The first step is to apply Gesso to Your paper mache Cone.


Start with a piece of Delight ™ air dry Modeling compound

Roll to approx. 1/16" thickness

Using your scissors cut random heart shapes
 Keep repeating the roll out and cut out steps until you have about 12 hearts in varying sizes.
I stop at this point as to not have them dry out.

Take a piece of lace and lay over your hearts

Start rolling with light pressure to get an impression in your hearts. You will have to go over the hearts several times to get all areas of the heart imprinted with the lace pattern.


next take watered down gesso and apply to the back of the heart


You will now start piecing like a puzzle the hearts onto your cone. If you run out of hearts just goo back and repeat Steps 2-3. 
a 14" cone took an entire package of Clay ;)

once you have covered your cone start to paint.
There is no need to wait for the Clay to dry.

a watered down wash of Acrylic paint is best and a light touch 
leaving the in between areas unpainted continue to paint the hearts all the way around the cone.

Once you are finished painting allow your project to dry
You can embellish the bottom with ribbons, flowers or trinkets :D

Thank you so much for following along I hope you have enjoyed this Project!

  2. Those are really cute. Thank you for the tutorial. I've never thought about imprinting paperclay with lace. Gives me other ideas :) Have a great weekend!

  3. Very nice! I always wait for the clay to dry before painting. Not sure why it never occurred to me to paint whenever! Thanks for that tip, I'm sure I'll use it. :)

  4. Hi LuLu! Love this idea! These would look beautiful anywhere as a gorgeous party or everyday decoration. Love it! LeeAnn

  5. These cones are a great idea. I can envision them with poinsettias for Christmas also. Thanks for a fabulous idea.

  6. These are beautiful cones. Love the idea of using lace for the impression on the hearts. Great project!
