Hi. I'm Holly Silva, and I've been a crafts expert for about fifteen years now. Today, I'm going to show you how to decorate cone crafts with glitter. So here I have a cone, a pine cone. You can pick this up from the ground maybe if you live somewhere with pine cones that fall from trees. If not, you can find them at possibly at craft stores if you're lucky. You can really find them most places during the holidays. And so here I have just a couple of examples to show you what it might look like and but for now, here we have this. Now I'm going to frost it. I'm going to make it look like it's a frosty winter time cone, OK. Now you can make cones for the summertime too. Depending on where you live it might be a really cool decoration. But what I'm going to do here is coat it with paint. Now you kind of want the paint to be a little bit thick because I'm going to show you in a moment, what we're going to do is pour the glitter on and we want to make sure that it sticks. So make sure that you have a nice hefty helping of either glue or paint. I'm showing you my preference but you can use any color paint that you want. Now I used a little bit of white and gray. And I mixed it of course, I don't have gray paint. Then I mixed white paint with a little bit of black just to give it a little, a little less of a in your face color. So here I have some glitter. I bought a new package from the craft store. It was only I don't know, maybe like two dollars or something. And for a couple of different colors of glitter which is really cool. So you're just going to throw a little bit of glitter over the top. All right. Make sure it sticks wherever you want the glitter. You want it to catch the eye. And of course put it over a surface that you can pour off and back into the glitter. And then you shake it off there. And there you have it. How to decorate a cone with glitter. Have a great time with it. If it's during the holidays, happy holidays. If it's during the summer enjoy the sun. We'll see you next time.
