Good morning! I hope everyone enjoyed Garden Week last week! I’ve really been enjoying working on our yard and am looking forward to seeing our flowers bloom! I’m here today to share a quick DIY project for the Fourth of July – Ice cream cone treat boxes! They would make the perfect party favor or cute little gift. I only made a few to give out but they come together quickly! I filled them with Berry gummies which were perfect. Below is the tutorial for making your own DIY Fourth of July Treat Boxes!

  • Paper Mache Cupcake Box (They were $1.00/each at my local Joann Fabrics Store)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Flat or angle paintbrush
  • Wooden ball
  • Glitter (optional for cherry)
  • Green pipe cleaner
  • Tan marker or paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Cupcake liner

Fourth of July Treat BoxStep 1: Paint the paper mache cupcake box! I used acrylic paint and started by painting the lid white.IceCreamConeTreatBoxI decorated the white lid, or in this case the scoop of ice cream, with blue and red sprinkles! I painted little stars on one of the lids with a thin paint brush.  To paint the jimmies, I used a flat paint brush, this worked great because all of my jimmies were the same size.

You can add the stem of the cherry by twisting a piece of green pipe cleaner together. Put a little hot glue in the top of the cherry and push the pipe cleaner in.DIY Fourth of July Treat Boxes3DIY Fourth of July Treat Box4Your treat box is all finished!
