1Use the knife to cut the cone exactly in half lengthwise. Place a rubber band around the cone from top to bottom dividing the cone in half. Use the rubber band as a guide to follow as you cut.
2Use the spoon to carefully scrape out the inside of all the half cones. Keep scraping out the inside until the hollow cone shell has a uniform thickness of about 1/2 inch.
3Draw a 3 inch star, a 2 inch star, a 1-1/2 inch star and a 1 inch star on cardstock by either downloading the project template or creating one of your own. Pin the stars in a random pattern onto the front half of the cone. Keep the stars at least 1/2 inch away from the edge of the cone and at least 1/2 inch apart.4Use the StyroCutter® Plus to carefully cut out the stars, following the package instructions carefully. Set aside the cut out stars to use inside the cone.
5Paint the inside of the front half and the inside edges of the star cut outs Black and let dry. Paint the inside of the back half of the cone Copper and let dry. Paint the cut out stars Gold and let dry. Paint the outside of the cone your desired color.6Glue the painted cut out stars inside the back half of the cone. Place the stars so that when the front half of the cone is in place you can see the stars through the cut outs.
7Glue the front back onto the back of the cones.
8Bend the wire into a star shape and glue the star to the top of the cone.9Place a battery operated light under the cones to add a glowing accent (if desired).
