Steps

For ice cream cones:

  1. Gather the tools and materials listed above.
  2. Cut the waffle cone pattern out of gold glitter iron-on using a cutting machine and weed out the design. Iron onto the felt using a pressing cloth in between to avoid directly burning the felt. Alternatively, straight stitch a waffle pattern in contrasting thread following the template as a guide.
  3. Next, cut out the felt cone piece according to the pattern.
  4. Flip over and fold in the straight edge first.
  5. Roll the rounded edge around the front to create a cone and glue to secure.
  6. Make jumbo pom poms using a large pom maker for the ice cream scoops. Experiment mixing in multiple colors of yarn while wrapping to get different “flavors” (like mint chocolate chip and strawberry).
  7. Use a smaller pom maker and red yarn to make cherries. Cut out a felt stem and stick it into the top of the pom.
  8. Now cut out felt ice cream toppings.
  9. Then cut sprinkles out of gold, pink, and white glitter iron-on using a cutting machine and weed out the design. Iron onto felt, using a pressing cloth in between to avoid directly burning the felt. Iron on one color at a time.
  10. To make whipped cream, apply a thin line of glue where indicated in the photo tutorial, about halfway down the straight edge of a tab.
  11. Attach to the next straight edge, moving counter-clockwise.
  12. Continue gluing and attaching the straight edges of the tabs together until you create a swirl of cream.
  13. To make chocolate wafer rolls, roll and glue the inner wafer piece tightly. Roll and glue the outer wafer piece outside.
  14. Wrap the wafer in brown embroidery floss, tucking and gluing the ends inside the wafer

For ice cream cone stand:

  1. First, cut out the pieces according to the pattern by hand using an X-Acto blade or cutting machine (recommended). Cut each piece out of both mat board (for stability) and colored cardstock paper to cover the mat board.
  2. Glue the colored cardstock to each corresponding mat board piece using glue like Yes! Paste, Mod Podge, or tacky glue. Let dry.
  3. Slide the wider end of the leg pieces into the base slots.
  4. Finally, glue the tops of the legs to the underside of the top of the stand.
