We discovered Dear Plastic online and instantly fell in love with their colourful creative ways. Handmade with a watercolor finish each POM is truly captivating and so vibrant and they truly complement our One Two Tree.

We asked Yumi and Taki from Dear Plastic five quick questions

1. How did Dear Plastic form? Dear Plastic started organically. Just the two of us creating and developing ideas together and making things for friends. I guess 3 years ago we decided that we wanted to develop it further and work on our ideas full time.

2. Is this a full time career for you both? Yes.

3. How does sustainability and the environment play a role in your work? The environment and nature is a big influence on our work. We both have a strong connection with Shinto belief and the idea that everything has a Spirit or God. This respect for everything around us leads to sustainable ideas. I guess that keeps us always thinking of ways of creating ideas that have the least impact on the environment.

4. What does POM stand for? POM is the sound of fireworks exploding in Japanese! Our POM’s turn from 2D to 3D over and over again by pulling a string and we think it similar to fireworks going off!

5. What’s next for dear plastic, new products? exhibitions? We are working on a window installation for Pieces of Eight gallery in Melbourne at the moment. That will open on the 3rd of Dec. We will have a stall at the upcoming¬† Markit at Fed Square in Melbourne and then at Finders Keepers in Sydney. We’re really interested in collaborating and working on larger spaces for installations.

We hope you like them as much as we do.

Another great idea for decorating your One Two Tree is a nontraditional one but a creative one. We styled our tree in an “X” formation and using two different colours of chord string we threaded and knotted through the holes of each branch.

To start with you need to cut two lengths of the pink chord string at 200cm and four lengths of the green chord one at 200cm. Knotting one end of the pink string you thread up from one corner of the bottom branches first, threading through the hole of each branch directly above. Work your way up to the top and then follow down the opposing side till you reach the bottom. Tie off the pink string keeping the line fairly tight but not too tight. Repeat this step on the other side, they will overlap at the very top.

With the green chord string you start at the very top of one of the four branches. Thread the green string through the top branch hole so that roulette online it evenly halves and you have two ends, one in each hand. Simply cross and tie the string like you are tying a shoe lace and thread one end through the next branch hole. Repeat the cross over tie and work your way down the branches one at a time tying off at the end. Again keep the string fairly tight but not too tight. Do this four times on each side. If the end of your chord string is fraying use a match flame to burn and melt the end so that it can be easily threaded.

You can easily experiment and do several different combinations. This is just one idea – imagine what else can be done. We will share another tied up idea with you very soon.
