How To Make A Cone Out Of Paper

How do you make a solid cone out of paper?

Printable Paper Cone Template –

  1. 1 Make a paper disk. The height of your cone will be determined by the radius of your circle. The larger the radius, the taller the cone. You can print the template in the document above, and trace the shape onto the paper you want to use. If you choose to make your own disc, do your best to make the shape as round as possible.
    • Improper measurements will have a big effect on your cone’s result. It’s a good idea to put extra effort into making the circle as round as possible.
    • For your disk shape, you can also use a compass, or trace a round object, such as a lid or container.
  2. 2 Draw a triangle wedge. Use the template to cut out two sides from the circle to make your wedge. To draw your own wedge, make a mark in the center of the disc. Draw out two straight lines from the center point to make a wedge with your ruler. If the lines are closer together it will make a smaller wedge which will result in a cone with a broad bottom.
    • Use a compass protractor to pinpoint the centre of your disc if you’re unsure where to place your dot. If you’re using a protractor tool to outline the disc to begin with, it can save you time to make the centre dot before you trace the disc around it.
    • You can also draw your own triangle wedge using a ruler and pencil.


  3. 3 Cut the triangle wedge out of the circle. To make a cone with a small bottom, cut out a larger triangle wedge. Use scissors or a precision knife to cut out your wedge as straight as possible. If you run into any cutting mishaps, you will probably need to start over again.
  4. 4 Bring the cut sides of your disc together. For your cone shape, bring one cut end of your disc over to the other in a cone shape. Hold it together and make sure the lower ridge of both sides overlap evenly. With this, your disc should have the desired cone shape you’re looking for.
    • Unfurl the paper and try again if the sides don’t meet properly at first.
    • Don’t make firm creases in your paper. Your cone should be rounded.
  5. 5 Tape the inside of the cone closed. Once you tape the two sides side by side so that the paper makes a cone. Tape the inside of the cone by bridging the two sides so that they slightly overlap and bridging the overlap with tape. With that done, your cone should be ready to go.
    • One straight piece of tape will give your cone the best stability. Multiple pieces of tape inside will make a mess. It is helpful to have one hand applying the tape while the other holds the shape of the cone.

  1. 1 Cut out a wide triangle. If the common disc method isn’t to your liking, you can make a cone shape starting out with a paper triangle. In order for it to be rolled properly into a cone, there must be one long side, and two shorter sides of equal length. The bigger the triangle, the bigger your cone will be. Take care to make your measurements and cuts as accurate as possible.
    • Slight errors can make your cone lopsided, or, worse still, too short to tape around.
    • Similarly, you can make the same process work with a half-circle. A half-circle will result in a smoother top.
    • If you don’t want to make measurements yourself, triangle templates are available. Make sure you’re using a template with one long side and two shorter sides of equal length.
  2. 2 Roll the far corners of your paper into the centre. Take one of the far corners and roll it into the centre so that the paper’s edge is touching the middle of your triangle. With your other hand, bring the other corner and roll it overtop so that it wraps around the other corner. When this is complete, you should have a general shape of a cone in place.
    • If you’re having difficulty rolling the corners together, it may be that you didn’t cut your triangle out wide enough.
    • The far corners are the opposite ends of the wide triangle.
    • Hold the first corner roll in place while you roll the other corner. One hand should be used for each corner.
  3. 3 Make adjustments to your cone. Unless the rolls were perfect, chances are you’ll have to shift the paper around a bit in order to make the cone even. Tighten the rolled folds as necessary. If you think you rolled the two corner folds unevenly, feel free to try again.
    • If there are excess lengths of paper jutting out from the cone shape, it may be that your original sheet wasn’t an even shape. If this is the case, you can keep moving forward by cutting off any excess with a precision knife. So long as you have an even base for your cone, people won’t be able to notice mishaps you had in the process of making it.
    • It’s a fairly quick process, so it pays to do it a few times until you get it right.
  4. 4 Fold the loose edges into the cone’s opening. Excess flaps of paper should be folded into the cone. This makes the cone look smother, and also helps the folds hold their form. If the rolls have been done correctly, there should at least be a triangular end that should be folded inward.
    • If for whatever reason you don’t have enough paper to fold over, you can get over this issue by running a strip of tape across the base, from the outside to the inside of your cone.
    • Try squeezing or loosening your grip on the cone if the folding slot isn’t apparent enough.
  5. 5 Tape the cone. Although folding your loose edges should stabilize the cone’s shape, taping the seam inside the cone will help ensure it holds. Take a strip of tape and line it up along the seam. If you think there’s still a risk of it falling apart, take additional strips and line them across the top and middle of the seam. With taping done, you should have a functional cone.
    • The loose edge can be taped down as well.

  1. 1 Choose the right paper. If you have a solid idea what you’re making a cone for beforehand, it helps to consider the material you’ll be using. Certain types of paper suit certain projects better than others.
    • Printer paper is fine for purely decorative cones. It offers a lot of potential to be coloured or drawn on.
    • A thick construction paper is best if you’re making party hats.
    • Parchment paper is a good choice if you’re making a funnel to bake with.
  2. 2 Cut off the tip for a funnel. If you’re making a cone for the sake of baking, a funnel is needed. Take a pair of scissors and cut the tip off. From that opening, you’ll be able to control the pour of icing or syrup by squeezing the funnel.
    • If your funnel hole isn’t big enough, you can try to cut it again. Keep in mind, however, that the higher you cut up the cone will result in an exponentially bigger funnel hole. It’s best to keep your funnel cutting careful and restrained.
  3. 3 Draw a pattern on your cone. If you’re making a decorative cone or a party hat, it’s fun to add a pattern. Take your favourite pencil crayons or markers and draw something. Patterns (like jagged edges or swirls) are best for a cone, but you can also draw words on it.
    • Draw a pattern in with pencil first if you’re worried about making mistakes.
    • It may be easier to draw your pattern on the paper before you make it into a cone.
  4. 4 Look up ideas for added inspiration. There are countless ways you could go about decorating a paper cone. Although you should try coming up with ideas yourself, it can be inspiring to look up creative projects other people have done. Experiment with different cone-making techniques. Decorate your cone with a fresh type of material. The possibilities with home crafts are endless.

  • Question Why does the tape need to be inside the cone? This is so that the cone that you are making does not fall apart, making you have to redo your project. Also, when it’s on the inside you won’t see it, making it more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Question How can I make a flask with paper? Paper will not hold alcohol – or any other liquid – for any extended period of time.
  • Question How can I decorate the cone? I need some suggestions. You could easily decorate the paper before you make the funnel, or buy cool paper, but you could also put a little pom on the top/around the ring. You could also cover it in glue and sprinkle confetti on it. There are plenty of visual ideas on Pinterest or Google images if you search “party hats.”

Don’t rush through the initial measurements. They may not be as fun as the creative decorating, but mistakes early on can lead you to having to start over from scratch.

Advertisement Article Summary X To make a funnel or cone from paper, first cut out a circle. The bigger the diameter of the circle is, the taller your funnel will be. Use a ruler and pencil to draw a triangle wedge over one-quarter of the circle. Then, cut the wedge out with scissors.

  1. Bring the cut sides of the disc together and overlap them to make a cone shape.
  2. Finally, use a piece of tape to secure the inside of the cone.
  3. Alternatively, you can make a funnel or cone by cutting out a large triangle from a piece of paper that has one long side and two equal shorter sides.
  4. Overlap the far corners and roll the triangle into a cone shape.

Then, use a piece of tape to secure the inside of the cone and hold it together. If you want to learn how to make a paper cone from a disc, keep reading the article! Did this summary help you? Thanks to all authors for creating a page that has been read 1,828,558 times.

How do you make a cone out of an a4 sheet?

Cut the paper in half diagonally from one corner to the other. Your triangle will have a short side (A) a long side (B) and a 90 degree angle. The tip of the cone will be formed along the third side of the triangle, directly across from the 90 degree angle.

How to make a pyramid out of paper?

Download Article Download Article Paper pyramids are fun and interesting 3D objects to make, and there are several ways that you can create them. For instance, you can make an origami pyramid that doesn’t require tape or glue, or you can make a paper pyramid using a template, some scissors, and a bit of glue or tape.

  1. 1 Find a square piece of paper. To make a pyramid, you need to start with a paper that has equal dimensions in length and width. The thicker the paper, the more durable the pyramid, but if you go too thick, the pyramid will be difficult to fold. Good paper choices include:
    • Origami paper
    • Construction paper
    • Cardstock
  2. 2 Fold and unfold the paper. First, fold and unfold it diagonally through the center from top right to bottom left, and then diagonally through the center from the top left to bottom right. Advertisement
  3. 3 Lay the paper flat on a table. Look at the folds you’ve made (the paper will be folded into four triangles). Either with a pencil or in your mind, label the four folds that divide the paper into quarters as A, B, C, and D (in order, going counter-clockwise).
  4. 4 Orient the paper. You want the paper in front of you so that the triangle labeled side D and A has its bottom edge facing you.
  5. 5 Fold the paper into a smaller triangle. Begin by folding the left side of the triangle in half in on itself, so the outer edges of sides C and D meet. Repeat on the other side, so that the outer edges of sides A and B meet.
  6. 6 Fold the triangle into a square. Start on one side, and fold the bottom corners in toward the center, so that each bottom corner comes to meet the top corner. Repeat on the other side.
  7. 7 Fold the square into a kite. Orient the square so it looks like a diamond, with all the folded flaps at the top and the neat bottom point facing you. On each side of the paper, fold the two side points of the diamond into the center so the bottom edge of the diamond lines up with the center edge of the square.
  8. 8 Anchor the folds. On each of the four kite faces, open each fold one at a time until you get a small right triangle sticking out the back of your fold. Fold this little triangle down over the front, and then refold all the original folds. Repeat with each kite face.
  9. 9 Fold down the tip of the kite. Fold it back and forth to create a nice crease. Now, stand the kite up on the bottom tip, and gently press the center tip at the top. The paper should begin opening up and unfolding at the base at the last crease you made. Once it unfolds into a triangle, you can square off the edges of the base and the sides of your paper pyramid.
  10. 10 Finished!

  1. 1 Print or draw a pyramid template. Either use a square piece of paper to create your own template or print one off and use it as either the paper for the pyramid or a cut-out template that you can trace onto a different piece of paper.
    • A proper pyramid template pattern will have a square base, and of each side of that base, there will be an attached triangle. Two or all four of these triangles will have tabs on them. Once cut out, the four triangles will come together and join at the top to form the pyramid faces.
  2. 2 Cut out your pyramid pattern. The tabs on the side are important (so don’t cut them off) because these will be used to glue or tape the sides of the pyramid together.
  3. 3 Flip the paper over and decorate it. Now that the pattern has been cut, you have the basic shape for your pyramid, and it can now be decorated any way you like. Remember that the faces on the underside of the paper will become the outside, so be sure to decorate the right side!
    • Try drawing an overlapping grid pattern to make it look like the bricks of an Egyptian pyramid.
  4. 4 Crease all the pyramid edges. After decorating, flip the pyramid back over to create creases so that the faces will come together nicely. Make sure to direct the creases inward, and don’t forget to crease the tabs as well.
    • If you are using thicker paper, such as cardboard, consider using a hobby knife or scissors to gently trace the lines where the pyramid will bend and fold.
  5. 5 Form the pyramid. Apply glue or tape to the outside edges (the decorated side edges) of all the tabs. Bring the four faces of the pyramid together, securing them to each other by positioning the sticky tabs on the inside of the pyramid faces. Gently press the sides to the tabs and allow the glue to dry.

  • Settling into the ritual of rolling a joint gives you a chance to slow down, smell the flower, and get maximum satisfaction from a job well done.
  • When you’ve mastered the cone joint in particular, you get even more satisfaction because.well, because it’s impressive when done well.

Also, it holds more weed than a straight joint. And when you’re sharing, that’s a major advantage. What is a cone joint? A cone joint looks similar to a straight joint except that it’s wider at the tip than the base. It’s not as dramatic as, say, a traffic cone or an ice cream cone.

  1. It’s more subtle and gradual, and oh so beautiful.
  2. So yeah, cone joints are very pretty, but they’re notoriously difficult to roll.
  3. Just because a cone joint looks good doesn’t automatically mean it’s gonna be great to smoke.
  4. A poorly rolled cone joint can be deeply disappointing, embarrassing, and a sad waste of good weed.

If you’re new to rolling cone joints, you may want to practice a bit on your own before trying to impress at a party. Benefits of smoking a cone joint So why roll a cone joint if straight joints are easier? Because when rolled right:

Cone joints look cool Cone joints hold more cannabis than straight joints Cone joints are sturdy Cone joints burn better Cone are fun to share Cone joints leave less waste

As we mentioned earlier, it must be done right if you want your cone joint to be beautiful, sturdy, and fun to smoke. Qualities of a well-rolled cone joint So how do you know it’s a well-rolled cone joint? Some people have very specific preferences, such as that the tip end should be twice the diameter of the filter end or whatnot.

It has good structure (not floppy or too rigid) It’s easy to light It burns evenly The smoke is smooth going in It stays lit

Cone joints may not be the easiest to roll, but the more you practice, the better you’ll get at it. And the more you smoke your practice joints, the more you’ll notice the difference small adjustments can make. With a few simple tricks and a little practice, you’ll be on your way to rolling the perfect cone joint every time. How to roll a cone joint What you’ll need:

Rolling papers High quality herb A filter (optional) Pen or packing device A rolling tray (optional) A grinder (optional) A lighter Step One: Prep your space Make sure you have everything you need before you get started. If you love the ritual of joint rolling as much as we do, we recommend using a rolling tray to keep everything neat and organized and to give yourself the perfect surface for rolling your joints. This is not necessary, of course, but it does make the whole process that much more enjoyable.

Step Two: Grind You’ll need to break up your weed a bit before it’s ready to roll. You can do this with scissors, pick it apart with your fingers, or use a weed grinder. We recommend opting for a mixed particle size, none too big, none too small. The larger pieces will give some structure to the joint and allow good airflow.

  1. The smaller pieces will help ensure a slower, smoother burn.
  2. This mixed particle size is most easily achieved by hand.
  3. Step Three: Prepare the paper If your paper is not creased, then you’ll need to crease it yourself by folding it the long way.
  4. Using an angled crease can help guide you during the rolling.

The glue side of the paper should be facing up. Step Four: Place your filter If you creased your paper at an angle, place the filter at the end where the crease is closest to the edge of the paper. Otherwise, just pick an end. You don’t need a filter to enjoy a good cone joint, but filters help to add structure, keep the mouth end from getting soggy, and prevent weed bits from getting into your mouth.

If you decide to use a filter, you have the option of creating your own using a small piece of cardstock or using a premade filter. Step Five: Fill your paper with cannabis Spread the cannabis down the crease with less at the filter end and more at the opposite end. Depending on your preferences, you can use anywhere from a half gram to a full eighth.

Just don’t fill it so full that you can’t wrap the paper all the way around. Step Six: Roll it up Roll the paper back and forth between your index finger and thumb to get the weed slightly compressed into the crease. Then use both hands to hold the gummy side of the paper between your middle and forefinger, one at each end.

Starting at the filter end, use your thumb to tuck the other side of the paper in and roll it around the weed so that it makes a cone shape. Go nice and slow, using gentle pressure. Adjust the compression along the way so that it’s slightly tighter near the filter end and slightly looser at the tip. The difference should be slight.

You want your cone joint rolled tight enough to hold together and close all gaps between the weed and the paper, but not so tight that it affects the burn quality. Step Seven: Lick it. Pack it. Twist it. Once you’ve rolled the herb up in a pretty cone shape, lick the gummy strip of the paper, not too wet, and seal it.

Use a pen or packing device to pack weed from the tip down. If doing so creates too large a space, add more herb. But be sure to leave a little room for twisting the end closed, especially if you’re saving your cone joint for later. Step Eight: Smoke it. Share it. Enjoy it. Lighting the twisted end is a great way to get your joint fired up, but be sure not to inhale until the excess paper has burned off.

Cone joints are fun to show off, fun to smoke, and fun to share. But no one says you can’t keep the whole thing for yourself. You rolled it. It’s yours to do with as you wish. Practice makes perfect, and good weed makes practice fun. So get your papers out and start rolling.

  1. Another option: Pre-made cones If you’re itching for a cone joint but you’re not quite ready to roll your own, you have the option of buying pre-made cones that allow you to skip most of the above steps.
  2. You still need to grind your weed, but then all you have to do is create a funnel using a sheet of paper that you can use to fill your cone.

One pinch at a time, drop your ground herb down through the funnel and into the cone. You’ll pack it the same way you would a hand rolled joint. Then twist it up and smoke it. Quality cannabis makes all the difference Your cone joint is only as good as the weed that’s in it.

Whether you’re rolling cone joints from scratch or packing pre-made cones, Hikei is here for you. We offer the highest quality cannabis products, all of which are authentic and lab tested. Our friendly, knowledgeable budtenders are committed to helping you get exactly what you want, even if you’re not quite sure what that is.


Can a cone roll straight?

There are many things that might be lying around your house that can act as a rolling cone. See what you can find. A panoply of rolling cones. The wider side travels further than the narrower side with each rotation of the cone. If both sides were the same size, it wouldn’t be a cone, and it would roll in a straight path. Try this with other objects, and observe how the path changes, as you change the cone. Two rolling cones are better than one.
