As we prepared for my daughters wedding the cost continued to rise, so after seeing that the pew decorations were going to cost $12 to $35 each pew, we decided to take this matter in to our own hands. There were no patterns on line to help and there was one on etsy with a cost of $10, so I would pass on that and just make up my own. After all how hard could a cone be? I grabbed a plate and traced around it on cardboard to make a template/pattern for my cones, and all 24 came together quickly. My tutorial is included if you find you are in need of quick wedding decoration. I also have made on a little larger to use as my door decoration for Valentines Day, so you can use yours for other things than just weddings. Maybe goody bags for a party, put on placemat to hold napkins and cutlery. The options are endless! Good luck and Happy sewing!
