Step 1: 

Paint those paper cones to look just like candy corns! Paint a ring of yellow on the widest part of the cone, followed by a ring of orange above it. Repeat for each cone. The width of each color on the candy corn cones is up to you!

Step 2: 

Once the cones have dried, use scissors to snip off the very tip of each cone.

Step 3: 

Now it's time to attach each cone to each light. Slip the tip of the cone onto a light and cut a small piece of white electric tape. Stick the electric tape to the paper tip of the cone and the plastic attached to the twinkle light.

Step 4: 

Wrap the electric tape completely around the cone and twinkle light so it is snuggly in place.

Step 5: 

Check it out! You have completely transformed the average twinkle lights into beautiful Halloween candy corn lights!
