I don't know why, but I never really feel like it's officially summer until after July 4th, for some reason. Maybe I'm in denial until then? I don't know. But now that the Fourth has come and gone, I have to face facts: it's summer, it's hot (as in super hot, I do live in Florida after all), and its time to hit the pool.
So to give summer a high-five the best way I know how, I created a couple of seasonal DIY projects for One Charming Party. One of those projects is this ice cream cone gift topper. It's super easy to make. But the reason why I like this one so much is because it's made with foam...which totally reminds me of the material that those floating pool noodles are made of. I mean, seriously, does it get any more summer-y than that?
