The one thing my daughter loves the most in this world after rainbow is “ice cream”. She loves anything and everything related to ice cream, be it a colouring page or even a bedtime story. So, I thought why not make an ice cream cone craft for her!
This is the perfect summer craft idea for all ice cream lovers including kids and adults. This is also a wonderful idea to have some pretend play with your little ones. Make many of them and use it as a colorful summer party decor or as a kids’ room decor.

Steps to make an ice cream cone craft
Get a cardstock paper(we used 10 x 18 cm) and make a corn shape as shown below. Apply PVA glue generously to stick the other end of the cardstock in place.
Cut off the top part of the cone to make the edges uniform.
(Please keep in mind that the diameter of the top part of this cone should be slightly more than that of the styrofoam ball you are using. Because we will be inserting the styrofoam ball into this cone in the coming steps.)
Get a piece of felt paper(We used approximately 19 x 19 cm). Make sure it is really thin. Otherwise you will have a hard time cutting and inserting it into the cone in the later steps. It happened with me the first time. lol)
Place a styrofoam ball (we used 3.25 cm diameter) at the centre of this felt.
Fold the felt inwards to cover the styrofoam ball as shown below. Secure the bottom by wrapping and sticking a transparent tape around it.
Cut the bottom of the felt paper to make the ends shorter and to make it look more like a small circle when folded outwards.
Apply PVA glue generously inside the cone and on the felt as shown below.
Now, insert the felt ball into the cone and push it really well to make sure it stays in place. Place it such that the flare at the bottom comes outside.
The ice cream cone craft is ready!
