Ice Cream Party - An Easy Decoration

I've been slowly but surely working on decorations for my daughter's ice cream party in a few months. I've always been someone who starts things early, so no need to be surprised here.  This project is simple and cute, and the best part is that I only used items that I already had lying around my craft stash.

I started out with some jute twine, a styrofoam tree, and a loofah from the Dollar Tree.
 I wrapped the tree with the twine to make it look like an ice cream cone.
 Then I hot glued the loofah on the bottom of the tree and set it down on the top of it.
 Well I thought it needed a little something like a cherry on top. I didn't have any small poms laying around, so I did the next best thing. I picked up the hair tie from my daughter laying on the table and tied it up.  Then placed it on top of the loofah.

The total cost for this project was $1 because my mom gave me the tree during her craft stash clean out and the twine was leftover from another project.

I think I'll make a couple more of these for the party.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. That is PERFECT for an ice cream party. You definitely need to make more. And your cherry on top, wonderful finishing touch.

  2. That is too cute! With my never-ending stash of felt, I have red for the cherry on top... I need to stop at the dollar store for the loofah and I'm set!

  3. Oh, this is such a great idea. It turned out so cute. What a smart idea to use a loofah for the "ice cream" part.

  4. That is darling! I love the idea of an ice cream party. So fun and festive. Nice job :)

  5. This is just the cutest ice cream cone decoration! LOVE :)

  10. Oh my goodness, isn't this darling? It really does look like an ice cream cone! I definitely think you should make more for the party :)

  11. So fun! I love that you didn't have to pay a ton of money on supplies!

  12. Love the use of twine - so cute!! Thanks for linking up at Romance on a dime.

  13. How did you make the cone stand upright & not fall over?

    1. They actually stood up on their own. :) The cone had a top that was about 3/4"inch across, so it gave it enough to stand alone.
