I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ARE ALL SCREAMING FOR ICE CREAAAAM!
Okay, maybe that’s a tad dramatic but like, who DOESN’T love ice cream?? Besides you few lactose intolerant friends in the back – I see you and i feel for you. BUT, whether you can or you can’t eat this delish little frozen piece of heaven, you CAN visually enjoy it as cute party decor!
Here is a fun little ice cream cone balloon DIY for your next birthday, shower, celebratory dessert party, or just a tuesday when you feel like havin’ a little fun 😉
You can also find a video tutorial for this Balloon DIY on my Studio 5 KSL TV segment here.
What you need:
- balloons in the ice cream colors of your choice (I personally love light pink, light blue, and yellow)
- Brown paper of any kind
- Streamers or crepe paper that matches the colors of your balloons
- Scotch tape
- *Optional* sprinkles – tissue paper in various colors, Mod Podge glue, and a paint brush
How to make it:
- Roll your brown paper into a cone shape and staple the ends together to connect it. Trip off any excess so that your balloon will sit nice and evenly in your cone.
- Blow up your balloon, tie it off, and place it sitting inside of the cone. Connect it on the sides with scotch tape – this will be covered up so don’t stress about it looking weird.
- Cut off a strand of streamer (in a matching color to your balloon) that is long enough to wrap around the part of your cone where the balloon and the cone meet. Crinkle it up in your hands to create more texture/dimension and tape it around the balloon like a belt using rolled scotch tape.
- *Optional sprinkles* Use my sprinkle confetti balloon method here to add a few tissue paper sprinkles to the top as a nice little finishing touch!
These Ice Cream cones can be used as table centerpieces or dessert table decor – for this I like to stand them up in a clear glass or small vase. They can also be hung from the ceiling by taping fishing wire or string to the top of the balloon with packing tape and hanging them with command hooks! It would also be fun to tape or glue kebab sticks or stakes to the bottom/inside of the cone and stick them in the grass to line a pathway up to your party! They are so versatile and fun and add an exciting splash of color to any party!
