  1. 1

    Measure a 6-inch by 6-inch square of scrapbook paper using a ruler. Cut out the square and place right side down on your work surface. Use paper that matches the colour scheme of the wedding.

  2. 2

    Hold one corner of the paper square and begin rolling it toward the opposite corner. Make a cone shape from the paper.

  3. 3

    Put craft glue along the inside of the loose end of the paper and adhere to the cone. Hold until completely dry. Be careful not to flatten the cone when gluing the edge down.

  4. 4

    Punch two holes opposite of each in the top edge of the paper cone. Cut 1/4-inch wide satin ribbon into an 8-inch length. Choose ribbon to match the colour of the wedding and the paper cones.

  5. 5

    Tie one loose end of the ribbon through one of the holes and knot. Repeat for the other loose end of the ribbon.

  6. 6

    Add candies to the paper cones and hang the cones from each guest chair. The cones can also be placed beside each guest plate or placed in a basket in the centre of the table.

Tips and warnings

  • Substitute paper dollies for the scrapbook paper to make the paper cones.
