Tip:Its always a good Idea to grab our Glitter Adhesive line for curved surfaces, it is a cast vinyl and will smooth down much easier.
By pulling off the vinyls backer and exposing the vinyl it makes for a much easier application, then just work your way to the edges. The all you need to do is remove the Tape.
Attach some ribbon to give them a finished look and you are set to decorate the tree.
