Instructions

    Shredding the Plastic Tablecloth

  1. 1

    Fold your plastic tablecloth so it resembles a square. Place the folded plastic on a solid surface or workbench. You want the side of the tablecloth that flaps open to be closest to you; the other side should fold over.

  2. 2

    With a sharp pair of scirrors, begin cutting thin strips away from you. Stop 4 to 6 inches before you reach the end of the folded side of the plastic.

  3. 3

    Gather the end of the plastic that has not been cut. Securely wrap duct tape around it until it feels firm and steady.

  4. 4

    Once the pom-pom has been taped and shredded, look for any strips that may need to be trimmed. If you desire thinner strips, lay the pom-pom back on the solid surface and continue to shred the strips.

  5. 5

    Cut the pom-pom to the desired length.
