Instructions

Step 1
Start at the bottom of the cone. Lay a square of fabric right side up on the side of the cone and use the metal nail file to tuck the center of the fabric into the bottom edge of the cone. Push fabric in just far enough to ruffle the edges, as shown. Continue tucking in the fabric squares about 1.3cm (1/2") apart to cover the entire cone.

Step 2
Use the low temp glue gun to glue the mini ornaments evenly spaced into the fabric trees. Glue one ornament as a tree topper.

Step 3
Thin white glue with water and brush glue over edges of fabric and tops of ornaments. Sprinkle trees with glitter.
