4 Treat Cone

What's a movie night party without popcorn? And what's the point of serving popcorn at a party if you don't invest in the presentation? For a bit of help, please turn your attention to this popcorn cone holder. Some power tools are needed to make this fun project. Design variation: instead of holes, you can choose to do wooden divisions. This will work if you will be serving popcorn in standard bags.

6 Ticket Pillow

How adorable! We don't recommend making a pillow for each of your guests. But with one or two of these lying around the movie night venue, the ambiance will feel more Hollywood fun. For the letters and numbers of your ticket pillow, black felt will work best. Simply cut following a printed template and topstitch to the pillow case. This can be as detailed as you like. You can even include the movie title!
