Cut your cardboard into a triangle.  The angles and size are completely up to you.  cardboard

Wrap foil around the cardboard triangle.  Punch a hole through the foil and cardboard, at the top.

Apply a thin, even layer of mod podge.

Lay small pieces of tissue on, in a single layer.  Allowing overlap will create a beautiful effect!

Wrap excess tissue around the triangle.

Add sparkles and sequins with glue, if desired.  Some of my tissue had glitter in it, so I opted not to do sequins.

Poke wire through the hole, piercing the tissue, to hang.
