    With the ribbon piece laying in front of you lengthwise, take the bottom 2 corners and fold them up to the center creating a triangular shape.

  • 5 Glue triangular ribbon

    Starting near the bottom of the cone, work up and around to glue triangular pieces in place.

    Glue ball on top of cone.

  • 7 Glue lace trim

    Glue lace trim around the bottom of the ball and the top of the cone.
