Ice cream is one of my favorite treats and today I'm making an ice cream ornament not only good for the holidays but also good for anyone who loves ice cream! You can see more of my crazy creations here
Ice Cream Cone Ornament
I started this project with a 2" terra cotta flower pot, and a 10 back of small plastic bulbs from Dollar Tree.
I started by drawing diagonal lines on the bottom of the terra cotta pot. This would become the cone and base of the project.
I painted the plastic bulb with Waverly chalk paint in the color ballet slipper. I painted on 2 coats letting it dry between each coat.
While the bulb was drying, I painted the ballet slipper around the rim of the terra cotta flower pot and created the illusion of ice cream drips running down the cone. I let it dry completely.
Once the bulb was dry, I added some Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Java onto the top of the bulb to represent chocolate sauce.
While the java paint was drying, I drew a face on the ice cream with a black permanent marker.
I added hot glue into the flower pot.
I placed the bulb into the pot and let the glue cool.
I painted some Mod Podge onto the java paint.
I placed some real candy sprinkles onto the Mod Podge and let that dry.
I hot glued a red button on top to represent a cherry on top.
