DIY: Personalize Your Valentine’s Day
Roll out your kraft paper on a flat surface and tape down the corners. Draw circles 8 to 12 inches in diameter on the paper as close together as possible with a marker, paint pen or bristle brush and paint. It’s best to draw the circles with a bristle brush and your chosen paint color if you’re using acrylic or tempera paint. Begin drawing or painting your designs. Look for pattern inspiration in your favorite textiles or the holiday’s icons, such as cupid arrows, roses, hearts or X’s and O’s. Note: One circle will make two treat cones, so six circles equal 12 cones.
Fill a bag with candy, tie it with string or ribbon and perhaps a gift tag (see how to make your own, below), and set it inside a kraft paper cone; repeat as needed. If you’re traveling with your treat cones, slip a piece of double-sided tape to the bottom of the cone to help secure the treat bag to the cone.
