Why a week of ice cream crafts? First, it’s been so hot, and I can’t think of a better way to cool off than with ice cream. Second, National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, July 15, and I’m celebrating early. Today, I have two, super-cute DIY wall art designs: Yummy Ice Cream Cone Wall Art and Festive Cupcake Wall Art, both created by Kathleen George.
Doesn’t this look good enough to eat? Kathleen made the “ice cream” using lightweight acrylic spackling, and created a realistic sugar cone by feeding her paper through a crimper.
Kathleen also used spackling to frost her cupcake. I love how the papers coordinate between the two wall hangings, and of course, you can easily switch out the papers to use whatever works best in your house.
Last week, I did a little field research and traveled to Ben & Jerry’s headquarters in Waterbury, Vermont. It was all in the name of research for Ice Cream Crafts Week on Crafts ‘n Coffee, I swear! Really, it was all work . . .
I hope to see you again tomorrow for another serving of ice cream crafts!
