DIY ice cream cone holders for your wedding

categories Details + Decor, DIY Wedding

One final project from the Ice Cream Parlor reception shoot: ice cream cone holders, of course!

This project is super super easy. You could easily bust out one for every table at your wedding, (if you were so inclined), in an afternoon.


Wood box: Jillian’s is from a flea market, but we found some on Remodelista and Three Potato Four too.
Card stock
patterned paper of your choice
glue or glue gun
7/8″ hole punch

How to:

Cut card stock and patterned paper to the size of your box and glue the two pieces together. Or you could glue larger pieces of each together first and cut the finished piece down to size after it’s dry.

If you’re going the “cut first, glue second” route, make sure you’re piece is dry before moving on.

Punch holes along one side of your card stock. Make sure the holes are about an inch apart so the cones don’t touch. Repeat on the other side, making sure each hole is aligned with one on the opposite side.

Use your choice of glue to stick the holder to the wooden block/crate.

Add the cones and you’re done. Cute cute.

Have a great weekend everyone!
