Making of Easter Cone Treat Holder

 

Did you know?

  • chocolate consists of 70% of total Easter candy purchased, and;
  • 76% of Americans prefer to eat the ears of a chocolate bunny first!

 

Materials needed:

  • A4-sized cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Hole puncher
  • Glue or double-sided tape
  • Ribbon or pipe cleaner
  • Lace, buttons, stickers, sequins, glitter glue, or other decoratives (optional)

Steps:

1. Start with an A4 rectangular sheet of paper (letter size). Mark out a cone template as seen in the picture.

2. Cut along the lines of the drawn-out cone template.

3. Form a cone by bringing the 2 straight edges of the template together. Next, unroll the paper. (unrolling ensures that the paper will take on a curved shape so that it will be easier to glue the edges of the cone in the subsequent step)

4. Use glue or double-sided tape onto the area bordered with a line as seen in the picture.

5. Roll and bring the opposite straight edges towards the tab coated with glue or double-sided tape. Align it properly with the tab’s line. Next, press on the seams tightly to glue the edges together.

6. Depending on personal preference, line the edges with decorations such as lace, glitter, ribbon, or any craft material you desire.

7. Using a hole-puncher, punch a pair of opposite holes near the base of the cone. To create a handle, attach a ribbon by tying the ends of the ribbon around the holes.

8. Now, you’re ready to fill the cone with some yummy Easter goodies!

 

Make some customisations to fit the occasion, inject more of an Easter feel into your cone holder!

To create a bunny treat holder, cut a pair of ears  from the cardstock scraps in Step 2 and glue them along the cone’s mouth. Also, be sure to glue include a pair of large round eyes, a cute button nose and a fluffy cotton snout to complete the face.

For the carrot treat holder, paint orange stripes all around the cone after Step 5. Then, cut some strips of green construction paper and glue them neatly onto the inside of the cone’s mouth for the carrot leaves.

There! Now you can have a customised, Easter theme cone treat holder for your sweet treats!

Let your imagination run wild and get cracking! Happy Easter!
