Step 1:
Wrap your cones with plastic wrap, make sure to cover every part of the cone so the yarn doesn’t stick.

Step 2:
Mix the Mod Podge with water until it’s not too thick. Around a 1 to 1 ratio of glue and water should work. If it’s too thin, it will drip everywhere and not be as strong, and if it’s too thick, the string won’t soak up any of the glue.

Step 4:
Wrap your tree with the yarn until it’s all covered. Make sure you put lots of layers of yarn so that it will be super sturdy. Once you’re done wrapping, quickly sprinkle your glitter onto your tree while it’s still wet.
