Cotton Candy "Ice Cream" Cones~Party Favor Idea

I was recently at a birthday party and these were the favors. 

Aren't they cute?! I thought it was a perfect idea! In fact, I loved it so much, I came home and made these myself. :) My hubby and sons weren't impressed. They were like "who are these for?" and I was all "they're just for us!" and they were all "but why?" and I was all "because I'm in a house with all boys and sometimes I just want to make something girly, so is that alright with you?!" Then I had to calm down and chant "Serenity Now..." Just kidding! I think we make a Seinfeld reference almost daily around here. LOL!

Seriously, how cute are these? I love the pink one. 

I just stuffed some cotton candy in a waffle ice cream cone, put it in a cellophane bag, and tied it up with some ribbon. 

I thought this ribbon would be perfect for a 4th of July celebration.

Does anyone else live in an all boys household? Do you sometimes just have to make girly things even when you don't have a daughter? I know I do. :)

    1. Thanks, Kim! When my boys were little and we went to Toys R Us, we were always on the Hot Wheels aisle and never on the all pink Barbie aisle, but I'd sneak over there every once in a while just to see what was new. LOL!

  6. That is a super cute idea!! Just so you know, I had two boys and then a girl. I was sooo happy, envisioning all this pink. Nope, she was such a tomboy I couldn't even dress her in pink without her having a total hissy! Really? Now she's 22 and STILL a tomboy! Sigh...

    1. Hmm...I'm not sure why that would happen. Maybe some air got in? Just make sure you wrap them really well in a plastic bag and tie it shut at the top. Sometimes humidity can be an issue too. Try to make sure they're in a cool, dry place. Good luck!
