Crafts Made With Yarn Cones

I'm a trash to treasure person. I was given some card board cones, which used to have cotton yarn. They're approximately 8" high. I can see them done as "angels". Any ideas?

Angels would be cute. With a cone shape I can also see a Santa since you already have the pointed top for a hat. Or a Halloween witch. Or a fairy like Glenda the good witch from Wiz of oz.

When I first read this I pictured painting or decorating the cones with fabric and using them for indoor bowling.

K, thanks. Wonderful share. I saw those also. I'm trying to get a jump on Christmas this year. So I'm trying to limit what I make. So this year is Bleach bottle Santa's, Cone angel's and individual ornaments. Keeper in NC

They'd make cute Christmas trees. You could also use them to make Victorian flower baskets or candy holders for all the holidays: cover the cone with pretty paper or cloth, trim the opening with lace, add a satin ribbon to hang. I've seen things like these in catalogs and they are not cheap!
