Directions

STEP 1

  • Refer to Stak Tree package instructions to separate outer square from rings. (Note: The square will become base with rings inverted and stacked on it.)

STEP 2

  • In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray base with light coats of Olive Bright. From largest to smallest, lightly spray each ring in order of colors as follows: Turquoise, Fuchsia, Holiday Red, Purple, Olive Bright. (Note: Colors will be more intense with two coats of spray.) Let dry.

STEP 3

  • Along bottom of smallest ring, use nozzle of tacky glue to draw thick line of glue, making 1/4”-1/2" “hills” of tacky glue. Sprinkle glue with glitter. Shake ring over copy paper to remove excess; return loose glitter to container. Place ring on plastic bag, with right side up, to dry. Repeat process to apply glue and glitter on each ring; let dry.

STEP 4

  • To decorate base, hot glue pink ribbon along top edge, silver ribbon through center, and purple ribbon along bottom edge. Let dry.

STEP 5

  • Adhere button on center of bottle cap using glue gun. Attach bottle caps, evenly spaced and centered, along silver ribbon base. Let dry.

STEP 6

  • To assemble tree, experiment stacking rings in size order until desired look is achieved. Use glue spots to adhere layers in place.

Tip

  • 1. Spray rings inside cardboard box to prevent paint from spraying onto work surface or surrounding area.
