Christmas DIY//old books pt 2.

-Glue Gun
-Styrofoam Cone
-Old pages from a book
-A Toothpick
-Glue stick
-Card stock

Step one:
On a piece of paper {about two to three inches long} cut little flaps.

Step two:
Take a pencil, or anything round really, and roll the pieces of paper.

So they look like this:

Step three:
Hot glue the top of the strip, place around the cone.
Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Step four:
Once you are done gluing the strips, cut a circle to cover the top.

Step five:
Cut a star out of card stock.

Step six:
Glue a toothpick onto one side.

Step seven:
Using a glue sick, glue both sides of the star. Sprinkle glitter over the star.

Step eight:
Once the star has been "glitter-a-tizes," push the end of the toothpick into the top of the cone.
{We used scissors to help us get it down.}

This took a spotlight place on the mantle.

Ps. look to the right of the Christmas tree... here is a close up of yours truly [Rylie here] at age six.
