- Foam cones, assorted sizes
- Glitter, assorted colors
- 3 different types of ribbon (your choice)
- Tacky glue
- Foam brush
- Small bowl or cup

- Place one cone on the newspaper.
- Using the foam brush, coat the cone with the glue/water mixture.
- Sprinkle glitter over the cone until it is completely covered in glitter.
