> So I’ve been on the hunt for fun ideas for the girls’ ice cream parlor party! How cute is this! Ice Cream Cone Party Hats! I dont’ know that my girls would actually keep them on, but I may have to give these a try. I’ll let you know how it goes! :)

Ice Cream Cone Party Hat

1. Prepare the ice cream cone first. Glue large sprinkles onto the base of the cone with white Elmer’s glue. Make a hole into the top of the cone and insert a foil cake topper (ours is from ABC Cake Decorating in Orange, CA). If you don’t have a foil topper you can use your own home made streamers.

2. Using crepe paper, make 2 rosettes. This cute polka dot streamer is from Party City. With a hot glue gun, glue the cone onto the first rosette. Then glue the rosette/cone onto a plain headband. This simple headband is from H&M.

3. Using hot glue, glue the second rosette to the bottom so the headband is sandwiched between the two rosettes. See photo below. Voila! An ice cream cone party hat!

Thank You One Charming Party for the great tutorial!

How cute are these DIY cupcake stands!! A trip to the Dollar Tree and some spray paint from Home Depot could make a fun little project for your next party! This particular stand would look adorable with my Sweet Shoppe Cupcake collection, but the fun part is that you can make them any colors you want! For all the directions to make your own cupcake stand, check out this great tutorial from Joy’s Hope! I would attempt to share the directions myself, but Julie’s entertaining post gets you pretty excited to give it a try. So go check out her adorable blog and let me know how it goes! :)
