Other Supplies

Paper mache cone tree, Foam paintbrush, Hot glue, Burlap strips, Glitter Snowflakes, Rhinestones

Instructions

  1. Paint the cone with the white paint. Allow to dry 1 hour. Once dry apply a coat of crackle medium. Allow the crackle medium to dry for at least 4 hours in order for the crackle finish to work properly.

  2. Working quickly and with one coat only, topcoat the cone with the pink paint. The crackle will begin almost immediately. Allow to dry for 1 hour.

  3. Gather the burlap strips around the base of the tree. Hot glue to the base. Hot glue rhinestones and snowflakes to the tree.

  4. Create a topper by hot gluing a gathered strip of burlap to a snowflake. Hot glue a small snowflake in the center.
