How to Make Snow Cone Ornaments:

To begin, start by using your acrylic paints to paint the paper mâché ornaments in your choice of colors.

I painted mine with a classic 3-color striped look, but you can do whatever you want with yours! Once you are finished painting, allow the ornament to dry completely.

Next, attach the paper cone to the painted ornament. You could do this several different ways, but I find that this method works best for me: make a circle of glue on a paper plate, about the same size as the circumference of the top of the cone.

Dip the top of the cone into the glue, making sure that there is a small amount of glue on the entire rim.

Place the painted ornament on top of the cone, and then use your fingers to carefully smooth away any excess glue. Allow to dry.

Paint the ornament with a coat of Mod Podge. I really like the Extra Thick Glossy version for this project so that it’s extra shiny and not drippy at all!
