Ice Cream Bead Pattern

DIY ice cream cone beaded key chain

What could be more delightful in summer than this Ice Cream Bead Pattern created by the FreeKidsCrafts Team. Kids will have fun making this to hang from their key chains or backpacks or to give as a gift to a special friend. If you’ve been beading for a while you will probably have enough spare beads to make this pattern without a trip to the store. A great idea would be to make them and donate as outlined in this post from our sister site  DIY to Donate.

Trivia:

The first ice cream cone was produced in 1896 by Italo Marchiony. Marchiony, who emigrated from Italy in the late 1800s, invented his ice cream cone in New York City. Source: International Dairy Foods Association – The History of the Ice Cream Cone.
