How to make a sequin Christmas tree with a Styrofoam cone

Gaze upon the sparkle of a shiny Christmas tree with this Styrofoam craft. A cone shape provides the illusion of a fir tree, and green sequins reflect the light in a room.
Use any desired cone size, but make sure there are enough sequins to cover larger cones. For variety, choose different Styrofoam sizes and shades of green, or omit green and go with red, blue, or white sequins.

Instructions
1. Apply a line of glue around one quarter of the front of the cone's base. Press the sequins on the glue. Continue gluing and wrapping the sequins around the cone in an upward spiral until you reach the top.
2. Run a line of glue along the top edge of the sequins that have been applied at the top. Continue wrapping and gluing, halfway overlapping to cover the exposed top of the cone. Cut the sequin strand.
3. Place gold paint in the bowl. Paint the front and sides of the star. Let dry. Next, paint the back of the star. Let dry.
4. Apply hot glue along the inside of one of the "V" sides of the star. Press the star to the top of the cone.
