Cut the semi circle out.
Rip or cut pieces of tissue paper into small squares around 1.5cm x 1.5cm.

Mould these pieces around the end of the pencil.

Glue them to the paper.

Fill up around 2/3 of the semicircle using this technique, trying to be as compact as you can so there are no white spaces.

Trim the tissue paper.

Glue the empty 1/3 to the inside of the rest of the paper to create a cone.
