Why give sweet cones instead of party bags?
This year instead of making party bags for the girls parties we made sweet cone bags! The girls adore sweets and they are a real treat for them so they loved the idea. We had no idea how to make a sweet cone but figured it couldn't be too difficult and we actually had lots of fun making sweet cones together.
We are really trying to reduce our plastic waste and although these cones use cellophane cone bags they are much less wasteful than the usual plastic tat that you get in party bags. If you wanted to make more eco-friendly version of sweet party bags by using fabric or paper bags instead of the cellophane. You can also get compostable clear bags you can use - although these aren't cone shaped, but that doesn't really matter.
Making these DIY sweet cones works out cheaper than buying pre-made sweet cones and also cheaper than buying lots of plastic toys and sweets to fill party bags. Children love sweets so these are always a big hit at the end of a party.
What you will need...
Cellophane cone bags - or paper / fabric or compostable bags if you don't want to use plastic sweet cone bags.
Twist Ties (sometimes these come supplied with the cone bags)
How to make sweet cone bags
Just fill the cone bags up with the sweets - take care that smallest sweets are put in first. Create pretty layers then use the twist tie to secure the bag. You might want to put the cone into a glass or cup to hold it upright while you fill it.
Voila - beautiful handmade cone shaped sweet bags. So cute and the kids will love them!
These party favours aren't just for birthdays - you can style them for different events - you can make halloween sweet cones, Christmas sweet cones, Easter sweet cones - the possibilities are endless!
