Step 2.


Use Acrylic Paint to cover foam cone green. Tip: you might also try pouring a small amount of paint onto a plate and using a foam brush to paint it on. This helps get the paint in the little cracks of the foam surface for full coverage.

Step 3.

Once the paint is dry it’s time to decorate.  Wrap Glitter Sticks around the cone. Tip: since the Glitter Sticks have a wire piece inside, try sticking the end into the foam to secure it as you wrap it around the cone shape.
