Red Chilli Mache

I was looking for crafty ideas for our church Chilli Cook Off for this Sunday... and

I found this chili pepper pom DIY. So I quickly dug in my wrapping paper bin looking for red tissue paper and I was lucky to find just enough materials make 2 Red Chilli maches.

Here is what I used:

4 sheets of Red tissue paper.
1 sheet of Green tissue paper (used and wrinkled .. oh well but it worked for what I needed )
red ribbons for tying together.

Cut 4 sheets of Green paper measuring 3inch squares
Cut 2 sets of 4 sheets of Red paper measuring 4 inch squares
Cut 3 to 4 sets of 4 sheets of Red paper measuring 5 1/2 inch squares
Cut 1 set of 4 sheets of Red paper measuing 6 inch squares.

Fold one set at a time (working from the bottom up.
Start with the smallest set of Red, separate the 4 sheets out.
Bring and gather each sheet in accordion like fashion, give a little pinch/squeeze in middle.
Tie together all 4 sheets with ribbon. (ensure ribbon leaves a 2 inch tail for typing together)
Work the next set, until all sets are done.
Now tie first and second together but 1 inch apart.
Tie 2nd and 3rd together, again 1 inch apart.

Now, you should get this when complete.


  1. well written make is sound so simple, but i couldn't do this, Nice job !

  2. Note that many casinos with European tables do not use la partage or en prison, so ensure to view the foundations of the sport before wagering. The European roulette version of the sport is played with the single-zero European wheel, which implies you can to|you presumably can} anticipate to considerably enhance your odds. The house edge on this version is half the home edge of the 다파벳 American variations, and it is set at 2.63%.
