    Let the glue dry completely before moving onto the next steps.

    3. Paint each section in alternating colors: I painted all the Cocoa Bean first, then Paprika, and then finished with Canary. (Make sure each section is dry fully before starting with the next color) Let dry completely and paint the back of the charger Cocoa Bean. Let dry. Use a staple gun to affix a wire on the back for hanging.
