Make This: Summer Gift Toppers DIY

DIY // ice cream cone gift toppers

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?

Girl, your little freebie/diy’s are some of my favorite things. My husband thinks I’m silly because I check your blog on the regular to give myself a creative jump start! Thanks for the daily dose of craft!


Aw, well thank you Margeaux. I really appreciate that. Happy to have you as a regular reader.


These are so perfect for summer party gifts! And I love that they’re made from foam, great idea!

Thanks Kelly. 🙂 After this project, I love working with those foam sheets. They are so easy to cut and add an interesting texture.


Oh, how cute! I never would have thought to make these out of foam!



Thanks Becca. Yeah, the foam is so, so easy to use (and super affordable). I’m kind of addicted to it now.


This will make giving my gifts from Venice waay better! But it’s already from Venice, so it’s good anyway 😉
