Instructions

    1. Remove ceramic from package and cut off a small piece

    3. Apply flattened ceramic to inside of plastic stemware and outside of cardboard cone
    4. Using your hands, make little balls of ceramic
    5. Use a pencil to drive a hole through the middle of every piece (this is necessary to feed the sisal rope later)
    6. Let air-dry for 24 hours (follow manufacturer’s instructions)
    7. Using sandpaper, sand any rough edges from the dried pieces
    8. Paint all the pieces desired color. Let dry for 2 hours (follow manufacturer’s instructions)
