Step 1: 

Place the candy in the bag.

Step 2: 

Use a pipe cleaner to seal the candy bag by twisting the end of the pipe cleaner around the top of the bag. This is similar to using a twist tie around a loaf of bread's bag.

Step 3: 

Now decorate your paper cone! I made a ghost face using permanent markers, but you can paint or glue to decorate the cone in any way you choose.

Step 4: 

Snip the very tip of the paper cone using scissors!

Step 5: 

Stick the candy bag, pipe cleaner first, under the candy cone with the pipe cleaner coming out through the hole in the tip.

Step 6: 

Again using your scissors, snip the majority of the pipe cleaner off, leaving about 1.5 inches exposed to turn into a hook. Bend the piece of pipe cleaner to make the hook. This hook will allow you to hang it on trees, door knobs, strings, etc.

Step 7: 

Now you can make a bunch more for all your friends and family! Here is my Halloween collection.
