Today is National Ice Cream Day! Of course we had to celebrate with a new project. This crochet ice cream cone hair tie is the perfect hair accessory for this day.
This project is really easy. The scoop and the cone are made separately, then sewn together. Once the ice cream cone is done a hair tie is attached. If you don’t want to make a hair tie, the ice cream cone will make a great applique for any other crochet projects. Because this uses only a small amount of yarn it is perfect for using up scraps leftover from other projects.
