Here’s a sweet treat for the birthday girl.

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.

  2. What a cute idea! I think I’ll be using this in a few weeks when my little girl turns 2! She just got into wearing headbands recently and I think she’ll love this!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I think that’s about the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time. So simple and so adorable. I think my baby will have to wear one of those at her next birthday party.

  40. i have grands BOYS who DO NOT wear headbands–they will wear head PIECES. I’ll get some green ribbons, put more than one cone and create a DINOSAUR head PIECE. that will be acceptable

  41. gorgeous party hat idea. love it

    Ledingham Party    Wednesday, December 19, 2012
  42. Awesome idea. I used this for my daughters ice cream party. However I couldnt’ find crepe paper so I actually used paper cupcake liners! Worked just as well. Here is the outcome
