Hot summer days have a way of making me crave ice cream. Does that happen to you? Hot summer days filled with fun at the pool, watching the kids play outside, and enjoying the sun myself. Those kind of days are not complete without an ice cream cone. The kids love it too. I don’t know about yours, but mine will never turn down an ice cream cone. This Ice Cream Cone Craft isn’t quite the same but it a perfect summer craft in my mind.
Simple Ice Cream Cone Craft
We love ice cream so much in our house that making ice cream cone crafts is a no brainer but one that also lead to eating ice cream. It’s just fun in the summer, isn’t it? This craft was simple and fun. Each kid can make their own ice cream cone however they would like to, just like when you go for ice cream. We did all single color cones, but you could absolutely mix it up and add designs!
One of my favorite craft supplies is tissue paper. It makes gift wrapping super easy but it also makes such fun craft projects. When planning this craft, I thought tissue paper would make great ice cream but I planned on buying the big sheets that we typically think of when we hear tissue paper. To my pleasant surprise when I went to the craft store, I found this pack of already cut tissue paper. I might just be behind the curve but I was so excited to see this super fun little pack of paper. Do you get that way? Completely giddy over craft supplies?

How We Made It:
I cut out a circle and a triangle from cardstock. The color of cardstock that you use is up to you, but we used yellow because it was the closes that we had that would resemble the cone itself.
We covered the circle with glue. The next step was to crinkle the tissue paper squares and lightly press onto the glue. We did this until the circle was completely covered in tissue paper.
Next we took strips of yarn and glued them onto the triangle to resemble the criss-cross of the ice cream cone. I cut random sizes and then after the glue dried, we cut the excess off.
When the strings were cut off, we glued the ice cream onto the cone.
It’s such a fun summer craft. I may even turn them into a banner by gluing them onto a ribbon. How fun would that be for a summer decoration? It doesn’t have to be a holiday to decorate!
