Memorial Day has come and gone, but don’t stash those patriotic decorations too deep in the closet.  After all, the 4th of July will be here before you can say “fireworks display!”  That’s why it’s a good idea to start cataloging ideas now – ideas like this cotton candy filled cone that Heather made over at Dollar Store Mom!  Have you noticed the little buckets of cotton candy at Dollar Tree?  One bucket contains enough to make 4 to 6 cones, so these festive treats cost as little as $0.15 each.  Now that’s our kind of price tag!  [how to make 4th of July candy cones]

Project estimate:

  • Bucket of cotton candy, $1
  • Scrapbook paper, on hand or $.50
  • Glue, on hand
  • Small dinner or dessert plate, on hand
  • Wooden coffee stirrers and stickers (for the decorative picks, optional), on hand or $1 and up

Total: $1 and up
