How to Make Easy Paper Cones for Treats is such a cute project. You’ll be delighted at how easy they are to create. You can whip them up in minutes. This project simply amazes me of all its possibilities.
I’ve always eyed this simple project over on Pinterest, so when my blogging friends and I challenged each other to create a craft that included three ingredients, paper, ribbon and washi tape I decided to give these cuties a try.
So, this same group of bloggers recently created some beautiful winter wreaths, it is a fabulous post. Make sure to check it out, I think you’ll be blown away.
But before I go on about how to make simple paper cones for treats, I want to share with you some of my dear friend’s projects. It is so refreshing to see what everyone creates with the same ingredients. Now, I must admit that I whined to the group that I wanted to change the original items, so a few of the projects have three different things.
Yes, I’m the reason for this mess up.

Well, let’s get this tutorial started!
How to Make Easy Paper Cones For Treats
Paper (craft or wrapping paper)
For some reason, this is linking to the homepage of the Paper Source. Just type in Rifle Paper and you’ll find it on the second page.
For some reason, this is linking to the homepage of the Paper Source. Just type in washi tape and it’s called Good Vibes Washi tape.
Tape or hot glue gun
1. Cut the paper
I go a bit crazy over Rifle wrapping paper from the Papersource Store, and I love how it makes such a cute container. But, honestly, you can use any style of paper, whatever tickles your fancy.
The size of the paper you use determines the size cone you want to create.
2. Start rolling your paper in the shape of a cone
I always make sure when rolling to keep the tip tight and sharp and roll the upper section. So, once you have your cone shape, tape or glue the seams.
3. Next, you’ll just trim off the bottom
Ok with the end that is open you’ll want to cut a smooth edge. I tried cutting the paper in a semi-circle before rolling, and I still had to trim the bottom. So, I figured why not make it easy and keep it to one step.
4. Attach washi tape to the top
Decorating with washi tape is optional, and if you want you can leave it plain.
5. Place a hole on both sides near the top of the opening
These holes will be used to thread your ribbon through it for the little handle. So, I used a bbq skewer and made a hole through the cone just below the washi tape. And since you are placing two holes right across from each other, this will create a more stable cone when they hang from a branch.
6. Tie a ribbon handle
So, cut your ribbon to size and thread through the holes and knot on the outside of the cone. Now the paper cones are ready to fill with treats!
So, now you are done with this fun craft. It is so easy peasy that kiddos can make them. I so want to add some dried flowers to them for some May Day home decor. You know how I love flowers.
I love how gorgeous they look, and I can see how they would be perfect for weddings or any party. Arrange them on branches, and they become quite a beautiful display.

Love you idea, great for my classroom at church. Also we are having a Valentine’s party so great idea for tabletop. Have a blessed day.
Thanks for checking out this blog post 🙂 Have a great weekend.
So much introductory chatter and then the instructions don’t tell me whether I need a square paper or rectangle, or the proportions of the sides… Sigh. Moving on to something that just shows me how and gives me clear instructions. Disappointing.
I sincerely apologize for the confusion, though, I hope you ended up finding something to create! Have a great day!
