How to Make Candy Cones for Easter Favors
Gather materials to make your cones, I used colorful card stock 8-1/2″ x 11″ size. Assorted ribbons, glue gun, ruler and scissors will help with your creations. Additionally, Easter stickers and assorted candies will make your candy cones personalized.
Here’s the pattern for the cone. Using the straight side of the card stock measure 6″and mark, then 6″ at a 120 degrees, measure 6″ all the way around or outer edge. Make a sample and cut out then roll into a cone shape.

After folding the paper into the cone shape and hot gluing together, accordion pleat a strip of card stock to create the cone cuff. I used a 2″ wide x 8″ long strip, fold in half lengthwise to create a folded 1″ wide piece of paper. Pleat the paper into 1/4″ folds, glue one side of pleated paper to one side of cone and repeat with the other side.
Fill the cone with Easter grass and candies. You could also use pipe cleaners as a handle if you desire or ribbon.
Even my sweet bunny JJ is getting in to making these cones. He loves paper and sweet things. The only sweet thing he gets is papaya, pineapple or apples. NO candy for this little guy.
