Make Your Own Festive Favour Cones

32 views  •  22 Sep 2023

How To Make Favour Cones For Christmas Treats

These adorable little cones offer a delightful way to conceal small surprises for your guests and present a modern twist on traditional British Christmas crackers. These favour cones can grace your dinner table as a charming welcome gift or be bestowed upon the kids as a special delight.

They're not limited to sweets. Consider tucking a special gift inside. While I've opted for pastel card, feel free to choose hues that harmonize with your unique Christmas colour palette, perhaps sparkling metallics, pure Scandinavian whites, or the classic greens and reds.


Dimensions of the Finished Cone

The favor cone stands at approximately 130mm (5 inches) in height and 80mm (3 1/4 inches) at its widest point.


What You Need To Make Festive Favour Cones

  • Four or five sheets of thin card in different colours, each 420 x 297mm (16 1/2 x 11 3/4in)
  • Thin card for templates
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Small craft scissors
  • Pencil

Start With The Templates For The Festive Favour Cones

Step One

Begin by tracing the four favour cone templates onto thin cardstock. Resize them to a good size and then print them out. Cut them out and then trace each template onto different coloured cardstock.

Repeat the process to assemble the second-to-top section of your cone, ensuring it wraps tightly enough to fit inside the top cone piece.

Step Nine

After all four pieces have dried, stack them to create the cone structure. Behold the Completed Favor Cones! Fill them with an array of colourful sweets. Since the cones lack a base, place them on a plate or tray for easy mobility.
