With all this warm weather (even a few days over 100° here in northern Utah), there’s no denying what time of year it is—summer. Today, I’m sharing a DIY that’s one of my simplest yet, and perfect for warm weather fun. Learn how to turn a hat box into a vintage ice cream cone holder!
I don’t know about you, but, during the summer, I find myself craving a nice, cool treat almost every night. But going out for ice cream as often as I want to (literally every night if I had my way) gets pricy fast! That’s why we’ve started keeping Blue Bunny® Ice Cream and Smucker’s Ice Cream Toppings on hand for everything ranging from family night, to summer get togethers, to spontaneous, late night snacking.
Making this ice cream cone holder really is a cinch! And it’s sure to be a hit with kids and/or party guests.
What You Need
- A Hat Box (or other cute container)
- Something Round (to trace)
- A Pencil
- An X-acto Knife
- My Printable Bunting Design
- 2 Kabob Sticks
How To Make
1. Find a circular object that’s about 1.5″ in diameter (I used a button I had lying around). Trace circles on the inside of your hat box lid, keeping them at least 1.5″ apart.
2. Using your X-acto knife, cut out your circles.
(Hint: make sure your blade is nice and sharp!)
3. To make the bunting, cut out the colored flags of your choice, fold them in half, and glue them around your string.
4. Tie the ends of your sting to the top of your kabob sticks, poke hols in your hat box lid, and slide the sticks inside.
I just can’t get over how adorable this is. I feel like I need to invite people over to my house ASAP so I can put this puppy to use even more!
At our house, Blue Bunny Homemade Vanilla and Mint Chocolate Chip are our favorite flavors. Caramel has always been my favorite topping, but the Smucker’s Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge is also super amazing!
You can find Blue Bunny Ice Cream in the frozen deserts isle, and Smucker’s Ice Cream Toppings can be found with the peanut butter at your local Walmart. Earn cash back on Smucker’s Ice Cream Toppings with the free Ibotta app!
Now that you’ve got a super cute, vintage ice cream cone holder on hand, you’re ready for an ice cream party at the drop of a hat. Paired with yummy ice cream and fun toppings, and you really can’t go wrong. Because everyone knows that ice cream and toppings are better together—just like cute, function DIYs and family/friends to enjoy them.
We love Keebler Waffle Cones at our house! And they fit perfectly in the cone holder.
Have fun making your ice cream cone holder! What are some of your favorite treats in the summer?
