It’s time for more Silhouette fun with this month’s Silhouette Creator’s Challenge! This month’s theme is all about summer. It could be anything summer related. Think summer vacation, summer clothes, summer fun. I, of course, thought of ice cream! I am an ice cream addict and we eat a lot of it in the summer. I created this Farmhouse Ice Cream Cone Holder DIY for this month’s challenge using my Silhouette Cameo.
Last week while I was treating the kids (and of course myself) to an afternoon ice cream cone, I realized how much I needed an ice cream cone holder. The kids were out playing in the new playhouse. I told them to just keep playing and I would bring out the treat. Well, I learned that I am not good at holding 3 sugar cones while trying to fill them with icy cold goodness.
I struggled through and served only slightly messy cones to the kids, then promptly forgot about the thought I had to create an ice cream cone holder DIY. But then as I was sitting at my computer thinking of all things summer for this month’s challenge… BOOM! There it was again. Could I make an ice cream cone holder with my Silhouette Cameo? Of course I could 🙂
Now I could have created a basic functional ice cream cone holder DIY, but that’s not how I roll. I decided to rustic it up a bit and turn it into a farmhouse ice cream cone holder with metal and wood accents. But no metal or wood was used in the making of this beautiful ice cream cone holder. Instead, I used some of my favorite tricks to make paper look like these farmhouse materials.
So after creating the perfect farmhouse ice cream cone holder DIY, I decided it was the perfect time for a fun ice cream cone bar. After dinner we gathered the family in the warm evening air and covered our ice cream cones with sprinkles and sauce and cherries. The kids thought it was the best summer activity and I loved that I could easily fill all the cones without needing a second (or third) arm.
And the best part, after the season is over, you can toss your homemade ice cream cone holder. No need to store it all winter long. Since it’s made out of paper, and so quick to make, you can whip one up again next summer for all the ice cream cones you will be eating!
