Halloween Cone Gift Idea

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of HERSHEY® for SheSpeaks. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you "boo" your neighbors? This is such a fun tradition that our family looks forward to each year and we can't wait to do it again! 

 Simply leave a basket of Halloween goodies on your neighbor's doorstep, ring the doorbell and RUUUUUN! Inside the baskets are treats and little Halloween gifts like HERSHEY® candy from Walmart, glow sticks, cards and stickers. Get the entire neighborhood in on the fun with this You've Been Booed gift basket idea! For this idea, instead of using a basket, I've created a cone to hang on neighbor's door knobs. They're so quick and easy to make, you could easily create them for the entire neighborhood in no time! 

I headed to Walmart  to gather everything I needed to put inside the Halloween cones. Walmart is the one-stop shop for all things Halloween and I knew I'd find some fun items to fill my baskets with. The HERSHEY'S All Time Greats Miniatures large variety bag was perfect for this project since we'll be leaving a lot of gifts on neighbor's doors and I wouldn't want to run out of goodies! 

To create the cone, print out this template and trace your choice of pattern paper around the template. Once your pattern paper has been traced, cut it out and glue it into a cone shape. Grab the download to the cone HERE.

Using a hole punch, punch a hole on each side of the cone and thread black ribbon through to create a handle. Tie a few strands of orange and aqua ribbon to the handles and decorate however you'd like! You could add stickers or cut out fun Halloween sayings from paper, just anything that gets you in that Halloween mood. 

Next, fill your cones with a little bit of paper shred and a Halloween card. Tuck in some Halloween stickers, glow sticks and lots of delicious candies from the HERSHEY'S large variey bag. 

Your Halloween cones are now ready to be hung around the neighborhood! Your neighbors will love these cute cones filled to the brim with all those Halloween necessities like HERSHEY® candies! 

It's always nice to let neighbors know how much we love and appreciate them. A little Halloween token of treats and small gifts is the perfect way to celebrate and bring the community together.
