Step by Step Ice Cream Ornament Directions

1. Paint The Christmas Ornaments

Start by painting your ornaments with acrylic paint. NOTE: I did two coats of paint so that there would be no streaks and the ornament would have full coverage.

2. Paint the Flower Pot Top

While the ornament is drying, paint the top of the mini flower pot the same ice cream color and add some cute ice cream drips.

8. Hot Glue the Christmas Ornament Inside the Terra Cotta Pot

Hot glue the ornament to the inside of the pot. Make sure you use enough glue and give press it down for a few seconds so it sets and sticks!
