Yummy Bling from Craft Goodies!!!

Hi everyone!
 It's Wendy from Craft Goodies here today to wrap up the Summer Bling projects.

My first thought when you mention summer is "HOT" and since we've already hit the 80 + degree mark here in Texas I was drawn to cool comfort, in other words ICE CREAM!

I actually put this together while I was in Utah hanging with my sisters so there aren't any "how-to" pictures...but I can tell you what I did!
I started by drawing my ice cream cone out onto poster board. Then I cut it into separate pieces, the cone, the ice cream, the topping, and the cherry. Everything was traced and cut out of 1/2 inch MDF except the topping  and that was done in 1/4 inch MDF.
From there I painted base coats and then sanded down all the edges.
I used two small pieces of slat wood glued to the back to re-connect the cone and ice cream, stapled on a ribbon loop for a  hanger, and then flipped it over and added the details with puff paint and GLITTER!
Next, glue the choco topping piece into place, add a tulle whip topping poof and the top it with the cherry.
{Okay, almost done, give the entire piece a good coat of sealer to keep the glitter in place.}

Look! It's mint chocolate chip-
Happy Summer!
