These fun ornaments are easy to make and a great craft for kids. You can get most of the supplies from Dollar Tree and some items you may already have in your craft bin.

Make them in July to celebrate Christmas in July or make a bunch to decorate your holiday tree. Below are the how-to’s and a list of supplies!

How to Make DIY Snow Cone Ornaments – 4 Easy Steps

STEP 1: Trace a Half-circle

Use a small plate and trace a half-circle with a pencil onto a white piece of paper and cut it out. The cereal bowl I used here was about 6 1/2 inches in diameter.

STEP 4: Assemble

Insert a paperclip into the top of your foam snow cone ball so you can add a string to hang your ornament by. Then use school glue or tacky glue on the inside of your cone to glue the foam ball in place.
