DIY Ruffled Ice Cream Cones

We are so excited to share this diy with you, if you are planning an ice cream party believe us these are just the sweetest things to let each child take home with them! Our amazing diy correspondent, Katie came up with this project for us and we just fell in love! We ended up hanging pink, peach and mint green ones from a white chandelier and the looked so cute and really added to the decor of the party! The little girls just adored them and were so excited when we let them have one! Most of them put them around their necks and pretended they were ice cream necklaces, it was so cute!

Materials:
2 1/2" styrofoam balls 
1 1/2 yards of lightweight cotton fabric
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Hot glue gun/glue
Glue
Scrapbook paper
Cone template
Polyester stuffing
Ribbon
Pins

Cut fabric into strips about 44" long x 1.5 " wide using pinking shears. Sew down the middle of the strip, ruffling fabric as you go with sewing machine. You can also ruffle the fabric by hand if you do not have a sewing machine. Your finished ruffle should be 8" long. You could also use pre-ruffled fabric or ruffle trim if you do not want to make your own!


Trace cone template onto your paper and cut out. Glue edges to make cone shape. I recommend not using hot glue for this step since you need a bit of extra time to get the edges together just right. Fill your cone with stuffing to help hold the shape.



Cut a circle roughly 8" in diameter out of your fabric. Wrap the fabric around the ball and hot glue to bottom, gathering as you go. Do not worry about how the bottom looks, it will be hidden inside your cone.


Place hot glue around inside edge of your cone and stick the covered styrofoam inside. Hot glue your ruffle around the top of the cone, twisting as you go around. Be sure to glue it to both the paper and the styrofoam ball. If you would like to hang the cones, cut ribbon to desired length and use a pin or hot glue to secure it to your ice cream!

  12. I love these! :) I think the only thing I might try differently is using polyester stuffing or scrap material to stuff the ice cream ball since the styrofoam balls might end up being a little expensive after a while. Thanks for the inspiration!

  33. Just a simple girl, sophomore in college to be exact, and because I've always been artsy, I can never get enough new crafts to try out. Lately, the new crafts have been decorations for my dorm room and this summer has been dedicated to three things: Working at Gymboree, Babysitting, and last but not least, making new decorations to make my dorm room MAGICAL next year..these are going to be perfect and random. Just what I need, thank you! <3
