Step 1:

Before starting the project, make sure to wear your gloves, mask, and safety glasses.

Step 2:

In an open area with enough ventilation, preferably outside of your house, place cardboard on the floor or on your working table. Then place the lights on top scattered to form a rectangular shape.

Step 3:

Spray the great stuff on top of the LED lights, filling them all out. Make sure to not cover the plug of the lights.

Step 4:

While it’s still wet, break the sticks into different sizes then place them on top of the great stuff. Once you are satisfied with how it looks, let it dry completely.

Step 5:

Spray paint it with red color, but make sure you don’t completely paint it – just a few parts. Next, spray paint it with black color – the same process as the red paint. Do not cover all the red paint with black paint to make the coal effect look more realistic. Once you are done, let it dry completely. Now, test it out and see how it looks like with your other decor pieces.
