What You Will Need:

  • Smaller Sized Clay Pots
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint Brushes
  • Paint pens
  • Pencils

Making DIY Ice Cream Flower Pot:

  • Use your pencil to sketch your ice cream design. We drew a drip line and the top of our cone first.

 

  • Next make a crisscross pattern along the bottom half for the cone design.
  •  
  • Take a smaller brush and paint light brown over the crisscrossed pencil lines. 

 

  • Now use the rest of your paint to fill in the cone and start painting your ice cream. 

 

  • Let the paint dry and add in the details with your paint pens to create all of the toppings.

 

  • Add a cherry on top by attaching a red pompom to a skewer and insert it into soil. 

 

  • Give it as a gift or put it on the porch!
