What you’ll need:

Styrofoam Cones
Individually wrapped tea bags
A glue gun and glue sticks
Small paper mache boxes
Wooden Stars or other trinkets

How to:

Glue the tea bags starting at the base of your cone. Place a thin line of glue along the upper edge of the back of the tea bag, then attach it right on the cone. Hold the bag as the glue sets.

When you glue the next tea bag, slightly overlap it over the one that was glued on before, so that the cone is covered. Finish the entire base of the cone before moving upwards, then repeat until you reach the top.
