Halloween Cones (yes...another Halloween project!)

I know, you're thinking I'm crazy by now - I am the most inconsistent blogger of all time, but over the past few days I've been posting like crazy, and they're ALL Halloween projects!  Well, two things - one, I'm trying to post more regularly, and two - we're crazy about Halloween!  I had this idea in my head, ever since I read this post over at Skip to My Lou (SUCH a cute blog!  You must check it out!).  Well, once I get an idea in my head, I can't help but get get it done!  I was so inspired by the cute little paper cones in this post, I just had to make some for the girls (Carter isn't really in a "things made out of paper" place right now, so he didn't get one.  I know, I'm a mean mom, but really he didn't care).

Anyway - here is what I made for Lindsey and Emily - I think they turned out SUPER cute!!!  The only supplies I needed for this were:  scrapbook paper (already had), ribbon (already had), crepe paper (purchased at Party City for $1.50) and all the little goodies inside (less than $3 for each cone).






Hmmm...I think they liked them!  Inside were some candies, Halloween Silly Bandz, pencils, and a few other little inexpensive trinkets.  It's not about how much things cost, but how you present them!




I didn't do a tutorial since I didn't take step by step pictures, but if you have any questions please feel fre to post here or email me!  I'd love to see any of your creations.

I'd love to know how you got the crepepaper to "look old"...? did you just staple the back or use glue? they turned out so cute!

Amanda, the crepe paper had polka dots on it already, and for the cone that has a "fringe" on it, I just folded it in half and snipped the edges. Then I just sort of crumpled it a little bit to make it old. If I do it again, I'm going to use several layers of crepe paper to make it more "fringey" looking.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I love the idea of cones rather than the standard goodie bag. Cute idea!!

Another super-cute project! Funny, I make tons of cones at C'mas, but never made Halloweeny ones! Thanks for the inspiration.
