Draw a large circle (we used a flower pot for as a stencil) on beige construction paper and cut it out.
You can use the paper roll as a stencil.
Cut a pink rectangle strip. Glue and wrap it around the same end of the paper roll.
Cut the beige circle to the middle.
Measure it against the beige cone as it has to fit on top of it. You could also just dip the top of the beige cone into black paint.
Secure the top with duct tape (or clear tape).
We glued ours from the inside, but it’s easier if you glue it from the outside.
