Measure the amount that you need by putting it in the big bowl

Put the cement in the bowl and place the smaller bold in the middle and press it down till its flush. now place something on it to hold it down while it dries.

Step 5: Remove After Its Dry

After its dry 24hrs remove it and get ready to drill the holes for lights.

Step 6: Drill Holes for Lights

now using a hammer drill or regular drill drill holes in random places for you LED lights

Step 7: Hot Glue

now glue all your glass beads over the holes you just drilled

Step 8: More Cement

now add more cement over the top of all the beads.

let it dry for about 15 min and then start to wipe off the glass exposing them tops using a wet sponge or rag.

Step 9: This Will Be the Trunk

Using a Styrofoam cup put some cement in it and let it dry. after its dry peal the foam away and paint the trunk any color you want.

Step 10: Paint

Spray paint the entire thing and using a paper towel and some paint thinner wipe away the paint off the surface of the glass after its dry.
