Start with a square piece of Japanese paper.
Hold on to the centre of the paper, then give it a couple of quick swishes. Get some more Japanese paper (white is best but I've run out for this project), measure the length of the tail, then cut strips.
Put inside the skirt, then staple onto the top. Then attach to your parol.
The paper parol is a Kudusama, the pattern of which I posted here previously.
