DIRECTIONS:

    FRINGE TREES
  1. To create the tallest gold tree, cut 3' off the top of a 9" cone with a serrated knife. Cut 3" off the bottom of a 2nd 9" cone.
  2. Insert a toothpick between the pieces before gluing to secure.
  3. Glue the 6" bottom section of 1 cone onto the top of the 3" bottom section of the other cone.
  4. Glue the 6" top section onto the top of the stacked bottom sections.
  5. Glue the 3" top to the top of the tree.
  6. The middle-sized gold tree is a 9" cone & the smallest gold tree is a 6" cone.
  7. Paint bottom cone of the tallest tree gold. While still wet, sprinkle with gold glitter. The paint will hold the glitter as it dries.
  8. Paint three 1" balls gold. Sprinkle with glitter. Set parts aside to dry.
  9. Pin evenly spaced rows of gold fringe trim around the cones. Start at the bottom & work to the top. Wrap each row of fringe 3 times to fill cone completely.
  10. Glue gold glittered balls to the tops of the 3 gold trees.
  11. To create the tallest white tree, glue a 9" cone on top of a 6" cone. To create the small white tree, cut 1" off top of a 6" cone for the base. Glue 6" cone to top of the base.
  12. Wrap bottom of the trees with gold lamé fabric. Trim to fit & glue in place.
  13. Wrap two 1" balls with gold lamé fabric. Glue to secure.
  14. Pin rows of white trim to the trees using the same method as on the gold trees.
  15. Glue 1" gold lamé balls to tree tops.
    SEQUIN-WRAPPED ORNAMENTS:
  1. Cut strip of sequin trim to wrap 5" ball.
  2. Pin in place to divide the ball in half.
  3. Cut second piece of trim to wrap the ball in the opposite direction, dividing it in quarters.
  4. Pin trim to fill in each bare section.
  5. Tuck the cut edges under the previously pinned trim to conceal.
  6. Repeat steps with larger or smaller foam balls as desired.
    PEARL-WRAPPED ORNAMENTS:
  1. Glue 1 end of the pearl strand to the 4" ball. Begin spiraling the pearl strand around this first glued pearl.
  2. Spot glue the pearls in place. Continue wrapping around the ball, keeping each wrap tight to the next.
  3. Glue the end of the pearl strand again at the opposite side of the ball.
  4. Repeat steps with larger or smaller foam balls as desired.
