Friday night we’re having family, friends and their kids over for an evening of pumpkin decorating! We won’t be carving pumpkins since the kids are still too little, so I wanted to create a few fun projects they could do in conjunction with putting stickers and silly masks on their pumpkins. I was thinking of ideas that kids would love and I thought… ice cream! The tiny white pumpkins are the perfect canvas for creating ice cream cones out of pumpkins! Tipped upside down they’re adorable Halloween decor. Romeo was jumping for joy when I showed him how to make a pumpkin ice cream cone! It does require hot-glue, so that’s obviously something an adult should do. But kids, big and small, will be elated with how cool it is to make these adorable pumpkin ice cream cones!
DIY Pumpkin Ice Cream Cones
Mini white pumpkins
Different colored paints, I used standard acrylic paint or “tool paint”
Sugar and cake cones
Sprinkles for decorating
Paint the pumpkins and let them dry (use a hair dryer if you need them to dry quicker)
If you’re going to add sprinkles, add them to the pumpkin when the paint is wet. Happy creating!
