Step 2:

Start gluing the rope to the bottom of the traffic cone and work your way up. Once you get close to the top, get your cat toys and attach them to the cone using a piece of yarn. Drop the yarn into the top hole of the cone and glue it to the top. Wrap rope around the strings, allowing the toys to hang loose.
