I came across this Ruffle Ice Cream cones craft project on icingdesignsonline , and wanted to share it with you.
You will need :
- 2 1/2″ styrofoam balls
- 1 1/2 yards of lightweight cotton fabric
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Hot glue gun/glue
- Scrapbook paper
- Cone template
- Polyester stuffing
Cut fabric into strips using pinking shears. ruffle the fabric by hand if you do not have a sewing machine.Cut out cone template onto your paper after tracing them . Glue edges to make cone shape. Fill your cone with stuffing to help hold the shape
Cut a circle roughly 8″ in diameter out of your fabric. Wrap the fabric around the ball and hot glue to bottom, gathering as you go.
Place hot glue around inside edge of your cone and stick the covered styrofoam inside. Hot glue your ruffle around the top of the cone, twisting as you go around. Be sure to glue it to both the paper and the styrofoam ball. If you would like to hang the cones, cut ribbon to desired length and use a pin or hot glue to secure it to your ice cream!
