Summer Ice Cream Cone - From a Witch Hat!
I'm back with one last project created from a Dollar Tree witch hat frame. You may remember the original Witch's Hat and the Spring Carrot, but now it's Summer and that means Ice Cream!
This project started out just like the others, with a witch hat frame from the dollar store.
I snipped the brim and folded it down to create the shape I needed.
After reinforcing the edges with masking tape, I traced the shape/texture of the 'cone' with chalk and a ruler on some burlap.
Then the lines were painted with craft paint.
Since the chalk gives you a thicker line, the paint lines weren't 'exact'.
after brushing off the chalk, the burlap was glued to the frame.
I used three bunches of geraniums from the craft store to create the 'ice cream'.
The leaves were removed and set aside for use in some future project. I haven't figured out what that project is yet, so if you have any ideas, shout them out in the comments!
This is where the 'learning curve' comes in. I decided to push the stems through the burlap to make holes. The problem was the mess I ended up with on the back.
So, I pulled the blooms off the stems leaving the little holes.
The blooms were attached to the burlap at each hole with hot glue.
In no time at all, the cone had ice cream!
