Pirate Booty Popcorn Holders {DIY Party Stationery and Decor}

For our super cool pirate’s booty holders we used a simple DIY tutorial from Hostess with the Mostess. Instead of using gift wrap we customized the popcorn holders to match the theme of the party and add the birthday girl’s name and age. These were fun and easy to make and the kids loved them. Even the adults were talking about how cute and practical they were. 

These customizable cones are the perfect addition to any party and the best part is that after the first set of cones are gone you just need to pop a few more cones on the sticks to refill the tray. Convenient and cute! If you would like Cherish Paperie to customize some popcorn cones for your next event contact us today!

You’ll Need:

  • gift wrap, decorative or customized paper
  • lollipop sticks or small wooden dowels (we used small wooden skewers from Smart&Final – meant for corn on the cob)
  • craft styrofoam sheets – approx 1″ thick
  • shallow tray or vase/container (we used a photo box from Michaels)
  • candy/treats for the cones
  • candy/treats to cover the styrofoam
  • tape, glue stick & scissors


For the Paper Cones:

  1. Download or create a template for the cones. (You can download the one we used here. It makes 5″ cones.)
  2. Trace the cone template onto the paper, then trim out. Repeat as many times as you need.
  3. Roll the trimmed paper into a cone shape, making sure there’s enough of a hole left in the bottom of the cone for the lollipop stick. Secure the cone shape with a piece of tape on the inside, and use the glue stick to make the outer edge lie flat.

For the Party Display:

  1. Cut a piece of the styrofoam sheet to fit securely within your tray or vase/container.
  2. Place the styrofoam in the container, then insert the lollipop sticks into the foam, leaving a few inches in between the sticks to make room for the cones. (You can insert the sticks in neat rows or in a random configuration – whichever you prefer!)
  3. Pour candy or popcorn on top of the styrofoam until it is completely covered (we used Good & Plenty’s)
  4. Fill each paper cone with candy, popcorn, or another treat, then slide them onto the lollipop sticks.
