Ice Cream Cone Party Banner DIY (7)

Recently my best friend and I decided to do a last minute celebrate the summer party with the kids from our daughter’s preschool.  We decided on an ice cream party.  Last week I shared the ice cream invitations I made, and today I wanted to share a simple and inexpensive and unique Ice Cream Cone Party Banner DIY.

Materials:

  • Box of Ice Cream Cones
  • Water Balloons
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • White Glue

Blow up as many water balloons as you have ice cream cones.

Place all the cones upright and allow the glue to dry completely (a few hours).

The banner is nice and light and holds beautifully.  The weight dispersion of the cone and the balloon are perfect for hanging.
