Make ice cream scoops in you favorite flavor that are easy to make and melt free. It’s never too early to start your Christmas DIY projects. These would make perfect locker magnets for your BFF!

What you need:

Start by flattening a thin sheet of brown clay. Pre-bake for 5 min at 265 F. After it has cooled chop it up into small chips (use red clay to make strawberry chips and a pink ice cream base for a strawberry scoop).

Combine the brown chips into your clay leaving some chips for later use.

Break off about 1/6 of your clay and place it aside. Roll your larger amount of clay into a ball and then slightly flatten the bottom.

Take the clay you set aside and roll it into a long cane. Wrap the cane around the main part of the ice cream and trim. Take your left over chips and press them into your scoop at random till you are happy with the look.

First, texture with a toothbrush by gently pressing the bristles into your work.

Next, texture just the cane part of the scoop. Use a needle to scrape at the clay in small circular motions.

Bake for 20 minutes at 265 F. Glue on a magnet and enjoy.
