Clip heads of flowers
Start by clipping the heads of each silk flower off by the stem. Cut them close so there is barely any stem left.
Glue flowers to cone
Next you'll begin gluing each flower onto your cone. Pipe a long bead of glue partway around the cone, then quickly place each flower head before the glue dries.
Work your way around
Work your way around the cone, then start a new layer just above the last row of flowers.
With each flower and row, be sure that you are covering any signs of the cone. It is better to slightly squeeze the flowers into one another than to have big gaps of cone showing through.
Spray paint cone
Once you are done, simply spray paint with your color of choice (or glitter spray paint) in sweeping motions across the bottom half of your floral tree. For that ombre effect, spray longer across the bottom, and get lighter with shorter bursts the higher you go.
