Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs, today I will be showing you how to make your very own Ice Cream Cone Christmas Ornaments. I don’t know if you remember last year when I made my CupCake Ornaments but let me tell you they were such a hit! I wanted to do something different this year. I have so much fun making festive ornaments for my tree and I love that they are so easy anyone can do them. Sometimes I make things that I want to eat, literally! You know those things you create and you walk by them and always stop to admire them. Yeah, that is how I feel about these suckers. I won’t lie to you the products I used in this project were key. So don’t make them without the awesome glitter dimensional paint.

Worried Santa will fill your stocking with your brother’s stuff because you left your stockings nameless this year? Scared to walk into an ugly Christmas sweater party and see someone else wearing the same thrift store sweater? From personalized Christmas decor to sparkly ornaments and   ugly sweaters, avoid disaster and make this holiday season uniquely yours with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint.

Make sure to check out all my projects I have made for I Love to Create HERE. Ice Cream Cone Christmas Ornaments - DIY Are you drooling yet? I have this old aluminum tree and I am thinking about making more and filling the tree with them. Wanna come to my house and help me make them??? Come on, it will be fun. We can sit at my table, drink coffee and make non edible ice cream cones.  holiday diy ornaments you will need

*Tulip Dimensional Paint
*Glue Gun
*Scissors
*Scrapbook Paper
*Christmas Ornaments
*Lotsa Love  ice cream cone ornament supplies

You can purchase all of the dimensional products I used in today’s post HERE.

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is available at Walmart, Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, AC Moore, Amazon and most other major craft supply stores.

I literally keep this stuff stocked in my studio. You will be so surprised how much this stuff comes in handy for the most random projects. They have this new Confetti Glitter that is so beautiful. It looks matte when you first squeeze it out but when it dries it’s like a glittery heaven.  GLITTER PAINT

Check out these amazing Christmas colors. Tulip has a great Christmas pack that is totally necessary in your life.  glitter puff paint STEP ONE – Get a sheet of scrapbook paper and lay it on a flat surface then fold it in half.

I wanted to do all black and white designs for my cones so my color would POP!
black and white patterns

This is what it should look like once you fold it in half. Easy right!

STEP TWO – Fold that half in another half. It will look like the size of a greeting card at this point.  diy christmas ornaments STEP THREE – unfold your sheet and it will look like it has four squares. Now you can grab those handy dandy scissors and cut along all the lines.

You will have four squares ready to get folded into baby cones.  christmas ornament tutorial

STEP FOUR – Cut out a circle in each small square. I free handed my circle because honestly in the end it will not matter if it’s perfect. However if you are a perfectionist you are more than welcome to place something down and trace a circle. The bigger the circle the bigger the cone.

These four small squares will give you smaller cones. If you want to do a bigger cone you can use one whole sheet of paper for one large cone.

Once you start making your circles you will get a feel for what size you prefer. I like to have a variety of small and large cones.
how to cut a circle

STEP FIVE – cut out a piece of pie from that circle. Again, it does not matter if it’s exactly perfect.  how to make a cone

STEP SIX – Take one end of the pie and fold it over continuously folding into the cone shape. It’s almost like twisting the paper and after a few times you will understand what I mean. I will be honest and tell you it’s SUPER EASY, can we hug now?  paper cones

Tadahhhhhh! We now have our very own paper cone. I seriously love this pattern!  Once you are done rolling the cone you can add a drop of hot glue to the end to secure the paper in place.  diy paper cones

STEP SEVEN – Once your cone is all rolled up you will line the inside of the cone with hot glue. I will warn you to work a little fast at this point because you don’t want the glue to dry before you put the ornament inside.  martha stewart hot glue gun

STEP EIGHT – Quickly place your ornament inside of the cone. Make sure to leave the part that you put the hanger in at the top. This is also where we will be putting out cherry! Wait, do ice cream cones have cherries on top? If not then mine do, hehe! cupcake ornaments

Once you are done making all of your ice cream cones we will add the dimensional paint to look like they are dripping off the ornament. Now I know most ice cream cones are not colorful but mine are and I like it that way. Just a tip, if you want you can use ornaments that reflect real flavors of ice cream.

How long does it take to dry? 
Depending on application thickness, Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint has a dry time from 2-8 hours. I recommend letting your project dry overnight; it is washable after the paint has fully dried.  ice cream cone diy

NON TOXIC
Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is nontoxic. However, we discourage the use of the product around the rim of any dinnerware or stemware. Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is for fun with friends, not food.

You can add one solid color  then come back on top with the dimensional glitter paint. Remember, this stuff dries clear so it will look completely different once they are dry.

I added some glittery red paint to the top to mimic a cherry however you can also glue red pom poms on top.   candy christmas

How stinking CUTE! I love that these are so precious you can literally keep them up all year long. Yes. I am that person that has a hard time putting things away that look like this. You could also add them to packages to add some spice.  icecream cone diy ornaments

Today we will close our eyes and make Rainbow Glass Jars, you know the ones that are made for fairies… What! You are not one? Good news for ya, the yumminess in these jars will turn you into one as soon as you sprinkle it on you.

Ok fine all that will happen if you dump this load of glitter on you is a hot dam mess on the floor. Let’s not forget your precious hair, yes it will be full of glitter. I used tinsel glitter for this lil project so you really are doomed. Unless you are like me and you wouldn’t mine glistening in the sun like Edward Cullen did daily. If you like all that glitters, then check out all of my rainbow crafts.

…now let’s get to the nitty gritty

I bought a little bag of sliced birch wood at Michaels. They are so dang precious I didn’t even want to use them for this post! FYI: they were only 2 bucks a bag. Now say that 6 times really fast! birch wood

These are all of the colors I used for this post, well minus black.  martha stewart rainbow glitter

Step One: Fill your glass jars with glitter. It’s your choice to fill them all the way or half way. I like leaving room for them to float around a little.

Step Two: With the bottle up right put a little hot glue around the rim and then carefully place your piece of wood right on top. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue is dry. VOILA!

Step Three: on the opposite side of the wood put a dot of glue then place your ribbon “good side down” right on top.  birch wood crafts Step Four: Tie the ends of your ribbon together. You just created a hanger on your fun glitter jar.  diy christmas ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

Today I am sharing something that will make you go ga-ga! Not Lady GaGa just candy cane Ga-Ga.

I made these cupcake ornaments a few weeks ago and they were a hit so I figured I would make another version of them.

I am using white puff paint so it looks like real icing! Have fun, use any color that makes you smile from ear to ear.  how to put icing on an ornament

I like to set them down in the container they came in after I apply the puff paint. Once in the container, sprinkle with glitter.  decorate cupcake ornaments

When they are dry, add a little hot glue to the bottom of ornament and stick on a cupcake liner.

Homeade Doorbells

Deck the doorknobs with jolly kid-made bells. It’s a great activity for days when it’s too wet or chilly to play outside and — between your craft bin and the refrigerator — you probably have all the supplies on hand: an egg carton, paint, glitter, glue, and yarn.

(and you jaderbugs know how much I love GLITTERRR (singing) again)

NINETYYYYYYYY 99999999999999999999999999… (SINGING LOUD in a MANLY voice)

Get your egg carton. Paper works best!

 Cut the cone-shape pieces that separate the eggs out of a cardboard carton (one egg carton will produce five bells).

I just used a roll of colorful yarn. Heart this!

Colors I used for my craft. You can get it HERE.

Colors I used for my craft. You can get it HERE.

Paint each divider, using acrylic or poster paint. Let dry; apply glue along the edge of the divider, all over the outside, or wherever you like, and sprinkle with glitter.

These are the glitter colors I used!! ORDER SOME HERE!! Don’t forget to use THESE!

Thread an embroidery needle with yarn. Poke a hole through a bell’s crown, and pull yarn through partway.

Slide a bell onto the yarn.

 Tie a knot above the jingle bell and one a little higher. Like this!

Tie several bells around a doorknob, staggering the lengths of the yarn.

OK. Fa real! I am in LOVE. I know I say that about every craft that has GLITTER on it!!! Can you believe this is 99!!!

I got 99 problems and a _____ ain’t one,

Recycled Ornaments

Holiday cards make perfect ornaments: dazzling and delicate yet impossible to break. In a few steps, turn cards into darling globes or circles that lock together, ready to twirl. Or frame a snowy scene in a frosting of sparkles. To make the glitter ornament, cut out a circle from a card and punch a hole for string; add glue around the edge and sprinkle with glitter. Hang your new ornaments with card garlands for an enchanting tree. HOW UH-MAZING is that Jaderbugs! Little one brought home one of these and I thought it was the most clever idea. How awesome to be able to capture a moment in time and decorate with it FOREVER. Just think…You could have a big ole tree full of pictures. HAHA

These airy ornaments are a breeze to make.

You will need a hole puncher. I know before you give me any hassle these babies are amazing. They are like, 25 years old. I have been having them for as long as I remember.

Cut a card into narrow strips; you’ll need about eight to 20 pieces, depending on how much space you want between them.

I always number mine that way I don’t mix them up. OH and remember to keep your numbers at either the top or bottom that way they are all facing the right direction. Yep. Full of tricks. Don’t forget after you cut all of your slices to punch on EACH end with the hole puncher!

Get some good ole paper fastener’s.

Stack strips and punch holes through both ends with a hole punch (if the stack is too thick, do a few strips at a time); insert a paper fastener into each hole.

Now do you see what I mean. PRICELESS.

Wishing I was the cow jumping over the moon, or the sheep jumping the fence…

Champagne-Bottle Wrap

 If you are looking to give someone a bottle of wine but can’t quite find the right “bag” to put it in then you need to start scrolling down! This wine bottle cover is absolutely adorable! It has just enough “POP” to it and boy would I love to get this! I actually wrapped mine around an empty bottle and I love the way it looks just by itself on the shelf!

You will need a wine bottle, any size will work. You can even do this to glasses or any container!!!

Tissue Paper

Place a champagne bottle on 5 sheets of tissue with the cork 5 inches from one edge.

Tape tissue to the center of the bottle, roll up, and tape down the free edge of the tissue.

Just tuck in the bottom or tape it down.

Tie a cord around the bottle’s neck, and cut paper into strips above it. Add ribbon, and attach a card.

How different is this sucker!

I think the one thing I love the most about this craft is that you can do different colors and then the pom pom at the top turns out simply AMAZING!

Martha Stewart Countdown #45 Card Garland

You all know I love garlands! I am still trying to figure out why I love them so much. It might be the fact that they dress up a room in NO time at all! Yeah I think that’s it. Maybe it’s because they are fun to do! Yeah that too! {{teehee}}…

This weekend flew by I tell ya! But I couldn’t help myself with this cute garland. I know everyone is starting to decorate for Christmas and I know someone out there will love this! Keep your mind open with this craft. You can use the same color or the same family of colors. You can make a garland for your Christmas tree or just hang it on something to add some flava flave to your space! Either way this will be a winner in your home and you can say YOU MADE IT!

Use craft punches (or trace a round object and cut out). Attach to heavy thread with stickers; rub with craft stick to secure.  If you really don’t want to do this craft from start to finish you could cheat a little and buy the dot’s!

How pretty is this garland!

So pretty! Remember my stained glass curtain tutorial? I hope you enjoyed this craft and can’t wait to see your pictures! Just email them to me!!

Going cook chicken and stare at my garland, jaderbomb

Homemade Christmas Ornaments

I just thought I would start off by saying how sorry I am for making you wait so long for this DIY craft! I have been so busy lately, but that is NO excuse!!! I know that you wait by your computer every day for my next blog~~~ :) And at 11:00 p.m. tonight I am prying my eyes open with Doritos just for YOU~~~
This craft is really easy and really fun. You can give these as gifts or you can make them for yourself (not at all saying that would make you selfish, to keep them ALL to yourself because they are that cute). You could give them to others for Christmas each year and start a nice little tradition ( or you can keep them ALL to yourself :)
INGREDIENTS:
~Spray Adhesive
~Glitter
~ Styrofoam Balls
~ Sequins
~Hooks (to hang them with)
~Strait Pins
~thanks P for being my hand model

First thing you will do is arrange your sequins on the strait pin according to your taste. I decided to use red, green and gold!
I figured I would do the original Christmas colors, or at-least what makes me feel all warm and cozy inside~

After you attach your sequins, you will gently stick it into the styrofoam ball.
Remember, you do NOT have to stick them into the ball in a certain order, unless you want to.
When the ball is finished you will get out your hooks and stick it where you want. You might have to remove ONE sequined pin to give the hook it’s own special home!

See BELOW…I wish I had an arrow to put here…
You can either screw it in or just push it in, either way works. You just want to remember to be gentle because if you put it in the ball and you take it out to redo it, it will not stay. So I guess what I am saying is you have ONE and only ONE try with this.. or your gonna melt when you go into the sun….:)

See just how beautiful these little balls of fire are!!! I personally would LOVE to get some like this for Christmas! Wouldn’t you?!?!?!?!
(Maybe I will keep just this one)

You can also add other things that interest you. I LOVE gold!! I think it has never gone out of style and while others HATE it, I sport it~~~

As you can see below, I used some gold tacks to put the letter “j” in my ball.

I wanted to add this one in here to show you that you can also use JUST glitter if you want.
First thing you will do is spray the entire ball with spray adhesive.

Then just sprinkle whatever color glitter you like. I used baby blue and brown. When I was done I added a little splash by sticking pins with a yellow tip in it.
So are you already in your car going get your ingredients!!! I can’t wait to see what you create:)
