Summer Long Weekends

I Scream, U Scream, DIY Ice Cream Bowls for Summer Holidays

It’s summer long weekend time! Nothing goes better together than sunny days and icy treats, both kids and adults are always ready for ice cream and it was a cute rhyme that inspired us to make these ice cream bowls. We think these adorable bowls are perfect for any summer long weekend BBQ or patio party. If you’re throwing a long weekend party and are looking for more DIY try our Fruits of Summer Food Tent. We also think these bowls could be wrapped up in a box with some sprinkles, chocolate sauce and an ice cream scoop for a fabulous host gift. After all, everyone loves ice cream! Let’s dig in….

Cover each of the graphite lines with the white paint pen. Don’t worry if you don’t cover all of graphite lines, they easily will rub off after the paint is dry.
