I am super pumped up about this one. Lily and I were doing a Max-nap-time craft and we found a paper cone wreath project on the Family Fun Magazine website. We had fun putting it together, but in the middle of it Lily said, “This would make an awesome peacock!” So, of course, we had to give that a try too.
You start with your base. Approximately a ten inch circle for the wreath and a 10 inch half circle for the peacock.
Cut your paper into 4inch by 5inch rectangles. Run two sided tape along one short end of the paper and orient that to be the top. Start the cone by rolling up the bottom left hand corner. After you have your cones, run two sided tape along the back and bottom two thirds of the cone. Then just place them on the cardboard base. Next we cut out a bowling pin shape to be the peacock body. Lily glued on the eyes and the beak to finish it off.
