These simple tiered “ice cream cones” are a sweet addition to any Ice Cream Party. Even better, they’re as easy as pie-a-la-mode to put together.

how to make ice cream party decor using a rainbow of pom poms #icecreamparty #partydecor

You will need: yarn in a rainbow of colors and white, Clover Pom Pom Maker (or use the fork pom pom making method), wooden bamboo skewers,

Directions: Using the yarn and the Clover Pom Pom Maker, make large pom poms in a whole rainbow of colors. Also, make a smaller bright pink pom pom for the ‘cherry on top.’ To tone down the colors a little, mix white yarn in with the colored yarn (except the bright pink ‘cherry’). Using a wooden bamboo skewer, poke through the middle of each pom pom in rainbow order. Start with the cherry so it’ll be on top. Nestle a large pom pom or a foam ball into the bottom of your ‘cone’ cup (this one is from Michael’s Craft, but there are similar ones at Target). Poke the pointy end of the skewer into the bottom pom pom to secure. Repeat and you’re done!

  1. this has to be one of the cutest ideas ever – I LOVE IT!!!! It’s perfect decor for an ice cream party but it’s also perfect for a little girl’s play time in her kitchen. Will have to get some yarn and make these with my girl. PS: where in target can you find the plastic cones?
