Instructions:
  1. Open stucco jar and mix thoroughly with craft stick to a frosting-like consistency.
  2. Turn over smallest cone with point down. You will be applying stucco, starting at the (overturned) base, and working toward the point. Practice the following technique, scraping and reapplying until you’re comfortable with the process. Use craft stick to scoop up stucco. Press craft stick onto edge of cone base and pull down, toward point of tree, dragging the stucco about 2 1/2″. Note that the stroke should be thicker and create a curved ridge where you began, but thins by pressing harder as it goes down. Similarly, make another stroke next to the first. Continue working all around the cone until you get back to the beginning, completing the first row.
  3. Similarly, apply another row of stucco about 2″ down from the first row. Repeat process with each row, working toward the cone point.
  4. Similarly, apply stucco onto other two cones. Let dry.
  5. Protect work area with old newspapers. In a well-ventilated area, spray trees with Basil spray paint. Let dry.
  6. Note: Rub ‘n Buff® has a paste-like consistency. Using fingertip, pick up a very small amount of color. Rub it evenly and thinly over raised areas of trees. Let dry.
  7. Use pencil to make holes in top of trees, gently twisting pencil as it goes in. Fill holes with glue and insert ornaments.
