ice cream cups

When you're looking to save a few bucks on decorations throughout the year, the best thing you can do is use your ice cream cups and dessert supplies as decor for your store. This can keep your pocket change in your pocket and open the door for team bonding activities in your business.

This might just be the trick to stand out among the 2,528 froyo stores that spread across the country in 2015. Here are some of the great DIY ice cream cup decorations you can use to spruce up your store.

An ice cream cup table topper

Are you looking for a new way to surprise customers when they enter your shop? Using ice cream cups as a table topper is a cute way to reuse older dessert supplies. All you need is a cute to go cup and you can fill it with whatever inedible content you'd like (after all, you don't want to use sweet, sticky syrups on a table topper).

You can always welcome spring by painting the outside of a paper cup to look like a bird's nest. Fill the inside with shreds of green and brown paper and then top it off with a cute cotton ball bird or two. For more fun, consider cutting foam board to fit inside the cup and stick the birds into the foam with your colorful paper straws. This will make it look like they're flying and kids will love to poke at the adorable display.

There are endless ways to craft fun table toppers through the use of your disposable ice cream cups. Then, when you're all done, simply recycle them! Clean up will be a breeze with this DIY decor.

Create paper cup chandeliers

If your ice cream store looks a little drab, hanging decorations can add dimension to an otherwise boring space. Spruce up your look by hanging paper cups from various spots on the ceiling with ribbon or strings. Even though your custom ice cream cup will look great, you can always paint them different colors to create a visually dextrous space. If you're really clever, try to craft a paper chandelier to hang above the cash register or above each table to set the mood.

Choosing to implement ice cream cups in your store's decor is a clever option to make use of older products while still maintaining an ice cream-inspired theme. For more information on custom ice cream cups, eco-friendly paper straws, and plastic spoons, rely on Frozen Dessert Supplies today.
