The more coats of the Glow-in-the-Dark paint the more it will glow. Allow the paint to dry and then stencil the stars and the moon with Black. Add the stripes on the rim in Black using a flat brush.

Hot glue to the bottom of cone onto folded pieces. Set aside. On the other circle with the smaller hole in center, cut out a circle for the clear purple plastic which is slightly larger than center hole and tape it to the wrong side of center. Fill the hat with goodies and then hot glue the bottom piece to hat. Make sure the taped side is glued to the bottom of hat.
