Easy gift idea!
Homemade gifts are always a nice touch—they’re personal and usually budget-friendly. I decided to follow this simple tutorial and make ring cones for a few of my girlfriends. The best part about this gift, is the endless ways to decorate and customize the design.

    Step 1

    Paint the wooden cone with white paint.

    Add a color block layer. Tape around the cone using masking or painters tape. Use the base color (in this case white) and paint along the edge of the tape. Once dry, paint with the desired color. This prevents paint from seeping through the tape and creates perfect paint lines.
