Here in Australia, Halloween isn’t that big of a deal (tragedy, I know). We are however rollin’ straight into summer after a seemingly endless winter, so I thought I’d celebrate the arrival of warmer days with some fun, festive ice-cream bunting.
These are perfect for baby showers, birthdays, bachelorette parties– whatever your heart desires!
There’s a 7 different sugary sweet designs for you to use: you can print out the whole set like I did, or alternate your favourite 2 designs. Have fun with it, play around with the arrangement of the pops, and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram with your at-home creations.
You will need:
- Single hole punch
- Ice-cream bunting, downloaded from here and printed on A4 paper at least 150gsm in thickness (tip: the arrangement works better with an odd number of ice-creams)
- Coloured string, ribbon or twine (I chose gold string for mine)
- Cut out your ice-cream shapes (you can download them here) with a sharp pair of scissors. Go slowly as there are quite a few curved edges to navigate.
- Using your hole punch, punch two holes in the top of every ice-cream which will act as your threading holes.
- Spacing them evenly, arrange your ice-creams on the ground to determine what sequence you’d like to thread them in and what length your bunting will be.
- Measure the length of the line of ice-creams with your string, adding an extra 1.5 metres/yards or so, for tying the bunting up.
- Start threading your string through the holes on the bunting: up through the left hole, across the centre of the ice-cream, and down through the right hole.
- Once you have strung all of your ice-creams onto the string, lay your bunting back onto the ground and rearrange as required to ensure all ice-creams are spaced evenly.
- Now it’s time to tie your bunting up!
- Trim any excess thread from the ends if required.
