DIY Ice Cream Cone Stand

This time of year brings a lot of get togethers, celebrations and parties for us. We’ve got a good amount of family birthdays that keep us busy celebrating just about every week throughout May & June; and the arrival of nice weather means everyone is hosting pool parties, bonfires, picnics and BBQs! This month’s Michaels Makers challenge was all about summer celebrations and we couldn’t help but involve one of our summer party favorites – ice cream!DIY Ice Cream Cone Wrappers @themerrythought #MichaelsMakersDIY Ice Cream Stand @themerrythought #MichaelsMakersA couple years ago, we made a simple, rustic ice cream cone holder to use as a food prop for our ice cream posts and we’ve been wanting to update that stand with a lighter, more modern stand and this challenge gave us the perfect opportunity to do that. This simple, natural cone stand is easy and quick to put together and with the addition of a few extra supplies picked up at Michaels, you can have a simple ice cream station set up in no time for your next get together.DIY Ice Cream Stand @themerrythought #MichaelsMakersIce Cream Cone Stand:
– 1/4x12x24 birch plywood
– table saw
– drill with 1/38 forstner bit
– wood glue
– clamps
– sand paper

Cut the wood into three pieces; a top piece measuring 2 3/4” x 14 1/2″ and two side pieces measuring 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″.
Measure and mark where holes will go. Ours were 2 7/8” center to center and 1 1/2” from the ends to the center of the first holes.
Drill holes.
Glue the end pieces onto the bottom of the top piece. Clamp the end pieces on, making sure they are square with the top piece and let dry.
Once the glue is dry, remove the clamps. Sand as needed.
