Applying mehndi or henna on different occasions like weddings and eid celebration is a part of South Asian culture. There are several methods of applying henna. Some people use pointed things and apply henna by dipping it in the paste. Some people use henna tubes but the most popular and best method of applying mehndi is by using henna cones. Henna cones are easier and convenient to use and they are also less messy so they are preferred most of the times.
Henna/Mehndi cones are easily available in the market but it’s less expensive and a lot easier to make them at home.
One can easily make henna cones by using a cello sheet (it should be thick so it retains its shape after you put henna paste in it), a plum bob a spoon (or something with the help of which you can easily pour mehndi into the cone); scotch tape and a pair of scissors.
Cut the cello sheet in rectangular shape. Start folding it in the shape of cone from one corner. Slowly fold it in the shape of a cone, leaving one side open and other completely closed (a funnel shape). Another easy way of making a funnel shape is to place a plum bob on the cello sheet. Roll the paper over it in a round shape and a conic shape with a perfect tip will be ready within seconds. Put a piece of scotch tape so it won’t move, or slip from its place.
Once you have made the cone, now you can start pouring henna into it with spoon or anything that you are using.
Now gradually fold the cone toward its closed end. When you reach the point where the henna paste starts, put a small piece of scotch tape on it so it will permanently stay there and will not move.
This is your required henna cone. You have to cut the end before using it so you can apply it or you can also pierce a hole by using a pin or needle. Your henna cone is now ready. It won’t take much time and is very economical!
