Ice Cream Cone Necklace

Now, before you worry that it's REAL ice cream, it's not. (: Just a craft in the shape of one, so don't fret! (A real one would get a tad drippy during summer's heat....) So this is a really cute craft to make, and it can also be a birthday gift idea for younger kids.

What you need:
Brown cardstock paper, craft glue, gold sparkles, round beads in pastel colors, small round red bead (optional), flat head pins, needle-nose pliers, string, extra beads (optional)

What you do:
  1. Cut out a 1.5 inch circle from the brown cardstock. Make a slice halfway to the middle point, like this:
2. Starting at the cut, wrap the circle around to make a cone. Glue it as you do this.
3. Trim the top of the cone. Make a swirl of glue around the cone and dip the cone in gold sparkles, if you like.
4. Stick your flat-head pin through the base of the cone (the flat part should be at     the tip of the cone). Stick one or two beads on top of it.
5.Use the needle-nose pliers to make a loop at the top of the flat-head pin (you can get a grown up to help with this).
6.Put the ice cream cone on a piece of string and add extra beads, if you like.
7.Tie the two ends of the string together and slip the necklace over your head. Now you’re really ready for summer!
