Cut the cerise pink tissue paper in small squares. Paint Mod Podge to the back of the first square of tissue paper. Turn the square over and put it in position on the first cone. With the brush, spread Mod Podge to the front of the square of paper, lightly applying pressure so that it will stick to the cone, and use your finger to gently rub out any air bubbles.
Repeat step 1 with the other squares of tissue paper, until the cone has been covered with the tissue paper. Do not cover the base of the cone, but make sure that the edge around the base is covered.
Do the same with the other two cones and allow all three cones to dry thoroughly before continuing to the next step.
Take the first 31” long piece of ribbon. Use a pin to secure it to the base of the first cone. Wind the ribbon around the cone, using pins here and there to keep it in place. Use a hat pin to keep the ribbon in place at the apex of the cone, and secure the second end to the base again before cutting off any remaining ribbon. Glue 15 rhinestones in random places to add “Christmas baubles” to the tree.
Repeat step 4 with cones two and three.
Use the plastic lid to trace three circles on to the white printer paper. Cut them out and glue a circle to the base of each cone to hide the ribbon ends.
Display on a glass plate with glass pebbles around the trees.
