As a nod to foam pool noodles everywhere (which scream summer if you ask me) here is a fun foam gift tag DIY. Create these colorful ice cream cones in a pinch, to decorate gifts for an upcoming pool party or birthday bash.
You will need: 8.5×11 foam sheets (or larger) in various colors, string or yarn, scissors, small hole punch, glue gun or craft glue, pen or pencil
Directions: Start by free-handing an ice cream scoop shape onto a sheet of foam. Note: If you’re uncomfortable with free-hand drawing, find an open-source image online that you like. Print, cut, and trace instead. Then, cut out the ice cream scoop with a pair of scissors. Next, cut a simple triangle shape with a contrasting color, for the cone. Then, using a pair of scissors, gently carve grooves into the triangle to give it a waffle cone look. Glue the ice cream scoop and cone together with a bead of hot glue and give it a minute or so to cool off and dry. Then punch a hole in the top of the ice cream cone, and string a piece of yarn through the hole. Attach to a wrapped gift and you are all done.
