Ice cream is always a favorite, isn't it? There are so many delicious flavors and we had a hard time picking a couple of favorites to use on this fun Ice Cream Crown, but we narrowed it down to strawberry and mint chocolate chip!

Start with:

  • Cardstock
  • Textured Cardboard
  • Paper Plates
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yarn
  • Stapler
  • Single Hole Punch

Create it!

Step 1: Fold two sheets of cardstock in half and cut into four strips.

Step 2: Staple the cardstock together to form a band that fits around the head.

Step 3: Cut three triangles from textured cardstock.

Step 4: Cut strips from textured cardstock and glue to each triangle, trimming the edges when finished.

Step 5: Cut paper plates into rounded triangles for the ice cream.

Step 6: Decorate the ice cream by painting and adding single hole punched pieces of cardstock like we did for the mint chocolate chip or by wrapping with yarn like we did for the strawberry swirl.

Step 7: Glue the ice cream to the cone.

Step 8: Glue the ice cream cones to the cardstock band.

Step 9: Cut a cherry and stem from cardstock.

Step 10: Add the cherry on top!

Wouldn't this make a fun birthday party activity? So many possibilities for flavors and ways to decorate!
