Here’s what to do: Just start with a basic sugar cone and fill it with some candy. I filled these with M&M’s and marshmallows.
Next, you’ll need cellophane treat bags and some twist ties. Holding the cone upright, cover it with a bag and close it up with a tie.
Then, just fold under the corners of the bag and tape them with a piece of clear tape.
Next, add an elastic string for the chinstrap. I found this thin elastic thread at Wal-Mart for only 97¢ for 30 yards,and it worked perfectly.
Just measure it out to the size you need (16″ was a good length for 7-year-olds), and then tape each end onto the cone. Be sure to press the tape on very well so the elastic doesn’t slip out too easily.
Then, adhere the printables to the “hat” with some glue or tape, and they’re done!
Lola and her friends had fun wearing them awhile before opening them up and gobbling them down. And they looked pretty cute in them, too!
These would also make cute elf hats for a Christmasparty! You may see that little project show up herebefore long.
Have fun with these!
