How to make ice cream cone garland

Ice cream cone garland

I thought I would show you a tutorial to make some fairly quick ice cream cone garland for an ice cream party!

What you need:

  • tissue paper in the colors you want
  • 6″ X 8″ brown paper (I used cardstock, but lighter paper will work just as well)
  • 2″ Styrofoam balls (you can find them cheap at the dollar store)
  • hot glue gun
  • fish line
  • scissors

Making the cone:

Take your brown paper

start to roll it into a cone with the corner at the point as shown above

hot glue a strip down the edge.  I glued the top half first while holding the point and then glued the pointy part around tight. 

Here you can see the glued part better.  then cut around the top to cute off the excess and make it straight.

 Adding the top:

Cover your Styrofoam ball with a bit of tissue paper and twist the ends together.

Put a little hot glue around the inside rim of your cone and insert the twisted end of your covered Styrofoam.
Cut a long strip of tissue paper about 1.5-2 inches wide and fold it down the center lengthwise
Start gluing on your strip of tissue down the fold and slightly above and below the fold, bunching it as you go.

all the way around and hide the ends into the start
Lastly, cut a small piece of fishing line, bring the ends together and put hot glue on the ends, and poke it into a small hole into the top for hanging.
