I Scream For Ice Cream Hanging Swirls
Not so good
These weren't as cute as I hoped. The "swirls" were kind of off and some of the strings ripped thru the paper.

Unique Decorations for Ice Cream Themed Party
These are not exactly what I expected but they worked out okay. They are made out of paper--albeit somewhat thick--thick enough to retain their shape but thin enough to allow dangling. I thought they were going to be mylar or metallic.
I also expected a variety of colors. I received just pink and orange. Luckily, the party was for my daughter.
I expected in a nonhanging state that I would be able to fit them into goody bags (I don't need so many around the house), but they were a very awkward fit--and they didn't at all fit in lengthwise.
The printing and cone decoration are very nice. Colorful, bright, very shiny.
One came with the fish wire cut. I could have taken the time to try to retie (which is tricky with fish wire) but I ran out of time so I just taped it onto a door jamb. Looked fine.
Another ripped very easily. I taped up that one too. Good enough.
It was difficult to get the cone-on-a-fish-wire onto the smallest part of the concentric circles for optimum dangling.
There was a good bit of extra fish wire (after each knot) that in retrospect I should have trimmed them.
The danglers I didn't send home are still hanging (door jambs, door hinges, anywhere they could loop on--and where they couldn't, Scotch tape worked great). After 4 days, the shape is still fine.

I bought these for my daughter's Ice Cream birthday party (turning 6). They were much better quality than I expected. Very easy to hang as each one comes with a plastic loop ready for hanging. Very cute and spruced up the place nicely. I'll definitely buy more of these types of decorations for future parties.
