A while ago we made a Pom Pom Icecream Garland, a post that has been very popular. Pom Pom Icecreams are so much fun to make we decided to make a new similar project. This time we’ll make Icecream magnets!
You need yarn, scissors and a Pompom Maker. The yarn should be in acrylic or wool. A cotton yarn makes straggly pompoms. You also need glue, egg cartons, acrylic paint, a brush and magnets.
First make a pom pom. We have used the smallest size Pompom Maker we could find. Want to know how to use a Pompom Maker? Check out our video:
How to make pompoms with a pompom maker …
… Or our post on how to make a pompoms with cardboard circles.
Trim the finished pompoms with a pair of scissors, but save the strings you used to tie up the pompom with.
The middle part of our Swedish egg cartons has the shape of a cone. Cut out the piece.
Paint the cone with acrylic paint. Then glue the cone and pompom together. Also glue a magnet on to the pompom and let the whole piece dry.
If you want a bigger ice cream just tie the pompoms together before you glue them to the cone.
We also painted the eyes on our ice creams.
Our new cute magnets came into use immediately. Also check our Pom Pom Icecream Garland here. Happy Friday!
