  2. Cut tissue paper into squares and rectangles of assorted sizes.  They should be no larger than 1" square.
     
  3. Pour some Mod Podge®  onto a piece of foil.  Cut a sheet of foil and roll up the sides to make a dish for the Mod Podge®.  Pour in a small amount of Mod Podge™.  Dip your brush into it and paint a thin layer onto the ornament base.  Stick a piece of tissue paper to it and push into place with the brush.  Keep going until the entire ornament base is covered.  You may need a second layer if some areas look thin.

  4. Allow ornament base to dry thoroughly.  Place the form on a clean sheet of foil and allow to dry.
     
  5. At the top center of the ornament base, push in the eye pin.
     
  6. Embellish!  For Blue Icicle:  Punch out 2 dozen snowflakes.  Pick up a sequin with the straight pin and attach a snowflake to the ornament base.  Cover the entire ornament, leaving some space between each snowflake.  For Red Icicle:  Add glue dots to the surface of the ornament. Apply larger ones toward the top and small ones at the tip. Shake on glitter.  Brush off excess.
