Make an ice cream cone garland out of yarn and paper for a birthday or summer decoration. Honestly, I am slightly obsessed with garlands made out of yarn pom poms. They are just so easy to make and look adorable on display. You will not let any summer or birthday of your kids go by without making a yarn garland for decorations. And what says kids party or summer party better than ice cream cones!?
LET’S GET STARTED WITH THIS EASY TUTORIAL TO MAKE YOUR OWN DIY ICE CREAM CONE GARLAND.
HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED :
- Brown colored sheet
- Brown marker or pen
- 6 inches plate or similar circle template
- Jute twine
- 1 inch pom poms in red or pink color
- Yarn in different colors
- Hot glue gun or glue
FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE GIVEN BELOW TO MAKE THE BIG POM POMS OUT OF YARN.
Step 1 : Cut one piece of yarn about 12 inches long of each color and set it aside.
Step 2 : Wrap one color yarn around the palm of your hand around 150 times and then trim the ends.
Step 3 : Next, slide the pre_cut piece of yarn through your fingers and slide the yarn off your hand. Tie the piece you slid through tightly. Then double knot.
Step 4 : Gently flip over the bundle of yarn and bring the two pieces you just tied to the other side to do the same then double knotting them.
Step 5 : Use scissors to cut the loops to create a pom pom.
Step 6 : Finally trim the pom pom. Trim the pom pom into the desired shape. Do not cut the tail that is what you will use to hang the cones. Now make one pom pom with each color of yarn.
FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE GIVEN BELOW TO MAKE PAPER CONES.
Step 1 : Cut one 5 x 5 inch piece of brown colored paper for each pom pom.
Step 2 : Use brown marker or pen to draw grid on each square of paper.
Step 3 : Now cut the paper square in to a cone shape. Free hand it or use a plate as a circle guide to create an arched side to the paper.
Step 4 : Next roll each paper into a cone shape and secure the edges with hot glue.
Step 5 : Now attach the pom poms to the paper cones by putting hot glue into the top of the cone. Ste the pom pom on the top pushing it somewhat down into the cone so the glue catches the yarn.( Keep the long tail on top and not in the cone to use to create a loop by knotting to hang.
FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE GIVEN BELOW TO MAKE ICE CREAM CONE GARLAND.
Step 1 : After each cone is made, string them up on the twine. Measure the length needed for the twine and add about 12 inches.
Step 2 : Add a slip knot to each end and slide the cones onto the twine. Hand as desired.
Step 3 : Finally add pom pom cherries (1 inch pom pom) to the top of each ice cream cone. To get the small pom poms sit straight add them on after the cones are hung on the twine.
YOU ARE DONE!
Finally, hang the finished garland on a mantle or a deck. This would be adorable for an ice cream party! Give this craft a try and share your experience with me in the comment box below!
