We’re sharing easy ice cream ornaments today as part of the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by my sweet and creative friend, Rachel of The Ponds Farmhouse.
If you’re coming over from Cindy’s blog, Cloches and Lavender, welcome, we’re glad you’re here. Cindy is so talented and I can’t wait to read all about her Christmas planning tips and tricks!
No matter if you’re a long-time reader or a new friend, I hope you take away these three things whenever you visit the blog and read our posts…
- It’s our goal to provide encouragement for your heart and home every time come by
- Taking time to enjoy simple pleasures each day is possible (even with a busy home and work life)
- You can make quick and easy projects feel festive without a lot of extra fuss
These simple ice cream cone ornaments are another example of a project that doesn’t really need a tutorial. But I know a step-by-step guide is always helpful.
For the past couple of years, I’ve been dreaming of a candy-themed Christmas.
The thing is, we don’t have a lot of storage in our island cottage.
So, every holiday season I struggle to come up with ideas that are easy to store yet complement the Christmas decorations we already own.
This year has been a big growth year for us both personally and professionally. So, I’ve decided if there ever was a year to celebrate with all things candy and pastels – it’s this one.
My plan is to start small and craft things here and there when I have time in the weeks and months leading up to Christmas.
That way, by the time the hustle and bustle of the holiday season begins, I’ll be ready.
After all, it will be here before we know it!
Here’s a look at how to create quick and easy ice cream cone ornaments…
Easy Ice Cream Ornaments Supplies:

- Paper Cups
- Shower Pouf (We got ours at a dollar store, but I wish I had seen these because the colors are so pretty)
- Glue Gun (I just put this one in my cart because it has a stand and mine could really use an upgrade)
- Glue Sticks
- Tarp or paper
Easy Ice Cream Ornaments Steps:
Gather your supplies and lay a tarp or paper down to protect your work surfaces.
If you have tags on your shower poufs, be sure to remove them prior to making these easy ice cream cone ornaments.
Make sure your paper cup is clean and free from dirt and debris.
Using caution and care as both the glue gun and glue will be hot, add glue to the inside rim of your paper cone.
Next, place the shower pouf on top of the cone and press down firmly.
Once the pouf has been secured to the cone, check the edge of the cone to be sure you don’t need to add any extra glue.
Allow the glue on the ice cream ornament to cool.
Hang by using the ribbon on the top of the shower pouf and enjoy!
What we love about these ice cream ornaments (other than they are crazy simple to make) is that you can customize the shower poufs to match your Christmas theme or the colors in your home décor.
Bonus, you can use them as decoration for spring and summer parties, so they can be used multiple times a year too!
I know Christmas is still several months away but I’m already looking forward to it, and I hope you are as well.
Keep in mind, the holidays don’t have to be big, bold, or Pinterest-worthy to make an impact. So, take the pressure off and start creating ornaments you are excited about!
Let us know if you make these easy ice cream ornaments. We’d love to see what color poufs you used!
