Ok, so I have a problem. Technically, these adorable little felt ice cream cones are kid’s craft. I made them for Bloesom Kids so that makes them kid’s craft, right? But… I LOVE them! I loved making them! I want to attach them to everything I own! They’re just too darn cute and totally speak to my affinity for fake food.
So, while these little cuties are technically kid’s craft I’m going to go out on a limb and say they’re suitable for all ages! Because we never grow out of cute, right? And with that in mind, let’s get making! (oh, and did I mention these are so easy and quick to make? They’re be done in 10 minutes flat, promise!).
First up, you’ll need:
– Large pom-poms
– Cone coloured felt
– Glue (a hot glue gun works a treat and really speeds up the process but PVA or craft glue would also work fine!)
– Cute buttons, beads and sequins to decorate
Start by cutting a circle from your felt. The size of the circle depends on the size of your pom-poms, but a 10cm diameter circle should do the trick. Now cut the circle in half and roll it on itself, making a cone shape. Then secure by sticking the exposed edge to the cone with a line of glue.
Next, simply run some glue along the inside of the cone and pop the pom-pom inside. Now you’re free to decorate with buttons, beads and maybe a little cherry on top! It’s really that easy!
Oh I just love these little guys! They’d make great additions to any toy box and imagine one of these as a keyring? Or earrings?? So cute! As always, share your pictures on instagram with #madewithpaperandpin so I can see your crafty goodness! Can’t wait to see what you make of these!
