But my craft room has been so delightful!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
There is something about the white stuff that gets my craft mojo going.
I wanted to tell you about how to make your own
ice cream cones.
Really-it's so easy-but the results-sooo cute!!
You need some brown, heavy card stock. You can use a light pattern if you want. I just had solid, so that is what I used.
Glue gun and sticks
white pom-poms (warning: these little poof balls are a little pricey. So make sure to bring your coupon._
1 1/2 bags per cone-if you use a 3" ball
Styrofoam ball-I used the 3"
If you have a glue gun that gets super hot, it wont work. It just melts the Styrofoam.
You will need 1 1/2 pkgs. of the white poms per cone. I liked the one where I used both sizes in a random pattern-but that is a total personal preference.
Make a cone shape out your paper.
I know that we have all done this before, but for some reason, my brain was having a hard time with this one.
My 8 yr. old had to help me. :)
Glue the ball to the cone.
You can do this either before you start the pom poming or during.
I did it both ways-I prefer gluing before.
Easier to be able to see where I needed to put the pom poms.
Cover the ball-and voila!!
I also added some glitter to the top of one-to look like sprinkles and a red pom to look like a cherry.
I am planning on making more for more tree.
OK-I think that's it.
