Beginning at the bottom of the cone, glue the hearts to the cone with the pointed end facing up. The paper hearts should hang slightly over the bottom edge of the cone.

Keep adding layers of hearts until you reach the top of the cone. Be sure to overlap each layer so that no Styrofoam is showing between the hearts.

As the cone gets narrower, you may need to bend the hearts slightly to make them lay nicely against the cone.

At the very top of the heart tree, bend the pointed end of the paper hearts to cover the flat top of the cone.
