When I saw the Crafty Lumberjacks post these cute snow cone magnets on their Instagram account, I knew I had to try to make them myself!
California is hot right now and snow cones make me feel nostalgic for my childhood when my sister and I would each get one – I would get cherry and she would usually end up with blue raspberry.
Materials & Process
Supplies needed are small Styrofoam craft balls, acrylic paint, toothpicks, paint brush, paper, glue and magnets. I had most of these supplies on hand and found the Styrofoam balls easily enough. I love it when I do not have to buy a lot of new craft supplies for a project.
Here’s the video tutorial on IGTV. These were pretty simple to make, however I struggled with the paper cones. I had to call in Matt for some help. I think I used too thick paper the first time. The second try was better when I used a light weight paper. They were fast to make – drying time for the paint was less than an hour!
The end result
This is the perfect summer craft to do, not only are they fun, cost effective and customizable: they can make cute little gifts as well!
