Step 2: Assemble Candy Corn Cone

 

Roll the candy corn paper into a cone shape so that the paper stays somewhat cone-like when you release it. This will make it easier to glue together. Run a bead of hot glue along the edge of the paper and seal into a cone shape. You can make the cone as big or small as you want just by rolling the cone tighter to glue it.

This part is completely optional, but I loved the way the little tuft of tissue paper looked sticking out the top! I took 4-inch wide strips of black tissue paper and folded them in half along the length. From there, I just pinched together the paper along the fold until the entire strip looked pleated. You will likely have to use several strips to cover the entire circumference of the cone.

To attach the tissue paper, work in small sections, putting short lines of hot glue to the inside edge of your cone.

Press the tissue paper into the glue, and work your way around adding glue and tissue paper until the entire inside edge is covered and you have a ruffle.

Step 3: The Boo tags

The free printable lets you have a bit of creative freedom; you can use all the pieces, or just one or two! You could skip the cone and just use the tags, or opt for the cone only. For my candy corn cone, I filled up a cellophane bag with candy, then tied both the “Boo” circle and tag to the top. The sealed bag was dropped inside the cone, then I stealthily crept over to my neighbor’s house and hung it on their door.

Shutterfly to the rescue! I think I've professed { Read More! }
