Four decorative cones hang from small pegs filled with rose petals.

Overview

Encourage your guests to join in on the festivities by displaying cute cones of petals for throwing fun. Match the paper cones and spray paint colour to your party theme for a cohesive decorative look.

Steps

1Paint the fence posts

Wear a mask and gloves and work in a well-ventilated area to apply a spray primer and leave to dry, then apply two coats of spray paint, leaving to dry after each.

2Secure posts into the ground

Position the posts about a metre apart and tap them at least 150mm into the ground with a mallet. 

3Attach rope and cones

Thread craft rope between the holes of the posts, and knot. Fill the paper cones with petals and attach to the ropes with mini pegs.

Pro tip Rose petals are an eco-friendly alternative to foil or paper confetti.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
