I then cut it into strips of 18" long and then fed each piece thru my sewing machine with a large stitch setting.
Gathering it as is went thru and feeding each strip one after the other. Leaving just a loose little thread in between each piece. I ended up with a piece that looked like this.
Next I gently pulled the thread from both ends and pushed the paper along the thread. Then I tied both ends of the thread together and pulled as tight as I could without ripping the paper. I was left with this orange poof.
Last step was to use them in my home. I have this vase of reeds and stems that I thought would work perfect.
A bit bland for Halloween until I attach my Halloween pumpkin poofs.
Very easy and it cost me less then $.79! Just a little bit of orange for the holiday. I think that it looks like a Truffla tree from Dr Suess and is the perfect decoration for Halloween! Enjoy!
