How to:-Paper Treat Cones & Display

I got this Paper Treat Cones & Display tuturial from and wanted to share it with you!!!!

Paper cones are super easy & inexpensive to make, and they’re adaptable to any theme. You can simply choose decorative paper or even gift paper to co-ordinate with your theme or colour scheme, and create a stunning display. You can fill up the cones with all kinds of yummy treats. What a lovely way to dress up plain old popcorn, as in the display above, created by Amy Atlas

You can fill them up with lovely candy, as in this Martha Stewart display

Or caramel popcorn as in this display by Hostess with the Mostess. The possibilities are endless!

What You Need To Make Them
decorative paper / gift paper of your choice
clear tape
glue stick

Cut a circle out of your paper (using a compass or any circular object to draw the shape)
Cut out a triangle about 1/4 of the circle, as shown in the diagram above
Fold the circle, overlapping the edges. Make sure to leave a small hole in the bottom of the cone
Tape the edges together on the inside & use a bit of glue on the outside to get the edges to lie flat
Or you can download a template from Hostess With The Mostess & omit steps 1 & 2.
For The Display
You Need
lollipop sticks
craft styrofoam sheets (1 inch thick)
treats to fill your cones
shallow tray / vase / container
candy / treats to cover styrofoam
To Create Display
Cut a piece of styrofoam sheet to fit securely in the bottom of your tray / vase / container.
Place the styrofoam sheet in the tray, then insert the lollipop sticks into the foam, leaving a few inches in between the sticks to fit the cones.
Pour candy, popcorn, or your chosen treat over the styrofoam until it is completely covered.
Fill your paper cones with your chosen treat, then slide them over the lollipop sticks through the hole in the bottom.

Hope these are a big hit at your next party!!!
