Ice Cream Cone Lanterns

The school year was about to end and I thought it would be fun for my daughter to have a Kick of the Summer Party!  This was her first year in preschool and she was already upset at the idea that she wouldn’t be seeing her friends for the summer months and her teachers too. So having a little get together with her classmates gave her something to be excited for. So, I thought about it for a few minutes and ice cream came to mind, what small child doesn’t like ice-cream.   I began to think about a quick and easy decoration to make and this came to mind!

Lantern Ice Cream Cones!  We have a lot of lanterns from an Alice in Wonderland Party we had so everything was right at my fingertips to make Ice Cream Cone Lanterns.

What you need:

  • Round Lanterns
  • Paper
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fishing line or string for hanging

The first thing we did was add double sided tape to one side of the paper.

Then, we rolled the paper in to make a cone shape.

Next, cut off the extra paper to create a even circular opening. You can also make the cone smaller at this point by cutting down the side and evening out the opening again.

Now, hot glue the cone to the lantern. Make sure you do this quick so that the glue doesn’t dry on you.

Here are a few pictures of the finished cones hanging up!
