  • Step 1Begin by giving your cone a coat of white paint. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 2Paint your cone with red paint. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Cut a slit from the outside of a BRENEX circle to the centre. Create a cone by overlapping the edges and secure in place with tape. Attach to the top of your cone with glue.
  • Step 4Cut three circles from foil crepe paper. We traced around the bottom of a glue stick with a pencil and then cut out our circles with scissors.
  • Step 5Attach the circles to your cone with glue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 6Cut two paddle shapes from foam and attach to the sides of your cone with glue. You may need to hold these in place as they dry.
  • Step 7Now you’re ready for take off! Up, up and away!
