Here is a Treat Cone I quickly made last night (couldn’t resist after putting this tutorial together!).

DIY details:

What You Will Need:

Decorative paper

Lollipop/Kebab sticks

Styrofoam sheets – approx 2.5cm thick

Shallow tray or vase/container

Treats for the cones

Candy/treats to cover the styrofoam

Tape, glue stick & scissors

DIRECTIONS:

For the Paper Cones:

1.Cut a square out of your decorative paper (for the one I prepared last night I cut a 150mm x 150mm square)  

2.Roll the trimmed paper into a cone shape, making sure to keep one of the pointed edges as your top tip.

3. Leave enough of a hole left in the bottom of the cone for the lollipop/Kebab stick. Secure the cone shape with a piece of tape on the inside, and use glue to make the outer edge lie flat.

For the Party Display boxes:

1.Cut a piece of the styrofoam/polystyrene/kaylite sheet to fit securely within your tray or vase/container.

2.Place the styrofoam/polystyrene/kaylite in the container, then insert the sticks into the foam, leaving a few inches in between the sticks to make room for the cones. (You can insert the sticks in neat rows or in a random configuration – whichever you prefer!)

3.Pour candy or popcorn on top of the styrofoam/polystyrene/kaylite until it is completely covered.

4.Fill each paper cone with candy, popcorn, or another treat, then slide them onto the lollipop sticks.

***You could also secure the stick onto the cone using tape in the inside before pushing through styrofoam/polystyrene/kaylite and then fill cones ones all displayed***
