Popcorn Tree Place Settings


I love putting together a table setting, so much so that I never want to do the same one twice because it is such a fun challenge! I also think it is fun when doing place settings, to include a treat on the plate and today’s takes the cake, er, well popcorn that is! Check it out!

I love these little popcorn tree place settings and they are so easy to put together! They take no time and because I used the yummy Pop Works & Company popcorn, I don’t even  have to worry about dessert either! These tasty little treats are way better than any popcorn I could throw together! Plus because you can order it online, you can start planning your parties from your couch in your pjs- the best way to put a party together!

To get started, I grabbed some transparency, these remind me of elementary school because these and the overhead projector were how we learned, and no I craft with them! To make the cone you just fold it together and grab yourself a piece of clear tape.

I just add the tape to the top of the cone and it holds it securely.

Then I take a pair of scissors and starting at the shortest point, cut a flat base all around the bottom of the cone. I find that if you just keep cutting it strait, it works itself out quite nicely.

Then I filled it up with popcorn! YUM! I got to try the Pop Works & Company Birthday Cake, Salted Caramel & Fudge and Cookies n’ Cream flavors and I  just don’t know which one I like the most!

I traced circles just a bit bigger than the base of my cone on card stock and cut them out.

Then I put some hot glue around the edge of the cone and placed the card stock piece on top. Next, I turned it right side up and added more glue around the base. Once it was dry I trimmed off the excess. It is easier to see this step in this quick video tutorial I created for this project as well.

Then you just add them to your table scape! I love a red and gold tablescape during the holidays and these fit perfectly with red chargers and gold cardstock circles right under them on top  of the plates!
