Occasionally insert a colored bead as a tree ornament. (Other idea: wrap the Mardi Gras necklace tightly around the cone, gluing as you go. Insert pins to hold the beads in place until the glue dries. These may be removed later.) Insert the star bead into the very top of the cone and glue in place. (Supplies: Styrofoam cones from craft store, green beads, enough to cover about ¾ of the cone, varied colored beads to use as ornaments, (or instead of single beads, use Mardi Gras necklaces), short pins with heads that won’t slide through bead holes, star shape or star shaped bead)
