  • Brown cartolina
  • Scissors 
  • Masking tape 
  • Old newspapers
  • Gold spray paint
How to do it:
  1. Take opposite sides of the cartolina to make a cone. Secure it using masking tape. For a more polished look, instead of sticking the masking tape on the surface of the cone, stick it inside.
  2. Cut the base of the cone with a pair of scissors so it can stand level to a surface. Determine which part of the cone you’ll be painting. Cover the parts that you don't want to paint with newspaper. 
  3. Lay out old newspaper sheets in your work area to avoid dust and paint stains on the floor. 
  4. Spray paint the cartolina cone. Remember to spray at least eight inches from the surface. Apply multiple coats with drying time in between. Set aside and let dry completely. 
  5. Remove newspaper. Voila! An instant holiday décor!
