Step 1: Saw the top off the Grenade

          Get your hand saw and saw the top off. if you have a grenade like mine, you can do one half at a time. When you get the top off, I suggest that you sand the bottom of the top. When your done, start painting the top. After that, assemble the pieces.

Step 3: Final Assembly

         Print out your decals. You can make your own or print out mine from the Powerpoint I uploaded.  I applied mine with hot glue but you could maybe use Modge Podge to put them on. Then hot glue you grenade top on. Apply hot glue on the bottom of the grenade top and press down real hard on the lemon. Put the pin in and you have your completed Lemonade!
