Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Paint Styrofoam cone Glorious Gold with sponge brush and let dry.
  • 3
    Starting with one color ribbon, pull the wire on one side to create gathers. Continue to pull the wire and gather the ribbon to fit around the bottom of the cone, matching the bottom of ribbon to bottom of cone.
  • 4
    Pin the one side to cone and wrap the wire around the pin before pushing it into cone. Cut excess wire. Continue pinning around cone. Once the ribbon is pinned around to meet the other end, cut off roll of ribbon.
  • 5
    Repeat steps 3 and 4 with other colors of ribbon until you reach the top of cone. Be sure to layer evenly to cover pins. Be sure to match where the ends meet from the previous layers to distinguish that it is the back of the tree.
  • 6
    Measure 2 inch from where the stick and star meet and cut off excess with wire cutters.
  • 7
    Paint the star Glorious Gold and let dry.
  • 8
    Brush Gold glitter glue evenly on star.
  • 9
    Apply a tiny amount of hot glue to the end of Trim-it to keep it from fraying. Glue around the border of the star. Trim off excess when both ends meet.
  • 10
    Glue 12 mm Purple rhinestone to the center of star.
  • 11
    Insert the star into the top of cone through the Styrofoam.
