Yarn Pom-Pom Ice Cream Pencil Toppers


  • Yarn in Ice Cream colors – Strawberry, Mango, Chocolate
  • Pencil
  • Pom pom – mini craft pom-poms in red
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Brown cardstock
  • Transparent sticky tape
  • Washi tape ( optional)


Create pom-pom balls as shown in this pom-pom flower craft. We used 4 ply wool in yellow and created pom poms that were about 3 inches wide.

Cut out a 5-inch pie-shaped piece from the brown cardstock. We started with a 5-inch radius circle and then cut out 3 pie shaped equal sized pieces from it.

Steps for making a yarn ice cream cone

Roll the paper into a cone shape around the rubber end of the pencil and then secure it with a transparent tape or a glue gun.

Using a glue gun, line the open end of the cone as shown below.  Carefully secure the pom-pom on the top of the cone. Hold in place for a few minutes till the pom-pom is fixed.

We covered the brown paper with a washi tape that had a checkered print. This covered up the sections where the transparent tape was visible. You could alternately use duct tape too. The double benefit is that it makes the Ice Cream cone stronger.

Make more pom-poms in different colors – We made Strawberry, Mango & Chocolate as they are my daughter’s favorites.
