Ice Cream Cone Garland DIY

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Here is an easy project for an ice cream or a sweets party.  This colorful and festive garland looks delicious enough to eat, but won’t leave you with any sticky messes. Plus, it takes less than an hour to make! That means you’ll get a little extra time to sneak in a real scoop before all those guests show up. (PS: Check out our giant banana split party.)

Material Needed: 5″ Honeycomb balls, free downloadable template, construction paper, string or twine, hole puncher, quick dry, tacky glue, scissors

Step 1: Download and trace the stencil provided.
Step 2: Cut out the cone and fold along the fold line.
Step 3: Glue the cone together on the fold tab.
Step 4: Open honeycomb.
Step 5: Punch a hole through the cardboard at the top of the honeycomb (this is where we will attach the string.)
Step 6: Seal the honeycombs closed.
Step 7: Glue the honeycomb to the cone by making a ring of glue along the top of the cone. We found that placing the ice cream cones standing up in a cup helped them to dry in place.
Step 8: Tie the string to the ice cream cone.

    So cute!!! I love this! Garlands are always an easy way to add a big dose of festivity, but this one takes the cake, or the cone, as the case may be.
