Ice Cream Cone Balloons

These cute balloons are simple and very easy to create. I can just picture these darling balloons at a child's summer time birthday party.

I didn't use helium here, but I'm sure that would make them even cuter if they were tied to a string and floating.






Materials: Balloons, Scrapbook paper, Tape, Ribbon




First blow up your balloon.

Then roll up the scrapbook paper into a cone shape.


Then cut off the excess paper until you have an even rim.



Next place the balloon inside the cone.


As the balloon sits nice and snug inside the cone, tape a few strips down to secure the balloon in place.





Next tape the ribbon around the balloon and cone.

You can also use double sided tape if you don't want any tape showing.


For the sprinkles on this balloon, I cut small strips of fun foam and glued sporadically on top.
