Paper Mache Ice Cream Cone 1

Mache+Ice+cream+cone-533x1024The structure of this cone comes from a terra cotta planter and crumbled sheets of thin aluminum foil. The weight of the planter makes a great base and the foil crumbles so much better than newspaper. I can’t wait to see this painted in yummy ice cream colors!

1. Mache strips of newpaper over a terra cotta planter. Mine cost just $1 at Michaels.
2. Crumble sheets of foil to make a ball. (I used the precut sheets for sandwiches from Smart & Final.) Keep layering sheets until the size is right. Mache newspaper around it and repeat for more scoops and a cherry.
