My daughters LOVE ice cream. What kid doesn’t right? My youngest daughter Lily loves ice cream so much that she once wanted to change her middle name to strawberry ice cream. Yes, she’s that serious about her ice cream! Lol! However, I thought it would be great to make her an ice cream necklace with the new Mod Podge Collage Clay that came out not too long ago. I saw this Collage Clay online and thought this would be perfect for making swirled ice cream cones and so I had to try it.
Here’s What You Need:
- Mod Podge Collage Clay (Pink, White)
- Mod Podge Collage Drizzle Paint (This is optional because you don’t have to put the cherry on top of the ice cream cones.)
- Wax Paper
- Eye Pins
- Wire Cutters
The Mod Podge Collage Clay will come with different tips. Begin be placing the tip that has the jagged edge onto the collage clay bag. Lay out your wax paper and create your ice cream cone tops by swirling twice around with the collage clay and very gently pulling up at the end to create the pointed tip. If you have frosted cakes, this is the same concept. I made my ice cream cone tops about the size of a dime. However, you can make them any size you like.
Hold and eye pin next to the ice cream top and cut the eye pin with wire cutters. While the ice cream cone top is still wet, place this into the center of your ice cream cone. Take the red drizzle paint and make a cherry on top. Let this dry at least two days until firm to the touch.
Take a small amount of Fimo clay and start kneading it to soften it up. Form it into an ice cream cone shape. Take a tooth pick to hollow out the center of the cone and to help form the cone shape. Hold the ice cream cone up to the ice cream cone tops to see if they’re the right size as you make them. Follow the directions on the Fimo package for baking the clay in the oven.
Glue the ice cream cone top top to the bottom with the E6000 and let dry. Feed the chain through the eye pin.
There you have it! These ice cream cone necklaces make great small gifts for kids or better yet birthday party favors. Kids woill flip over these. These are just so much fun and my daughter LOVES these so much that she is going to wear one on her first day of school.
