Fringey Streamers DIY

I was making party decorations for Roman’s party and ended up sort of inventing these little streamers. They might be my favorite thing ever right now–they are just so fringey and frilly! Plus they are a cinch to make. Here is how to do it.

Crepe Paper in sheets (not tissue paper, crepe paper has a stretch to it.)

Step 1: Cut off about a 2″-3″ section of crepe paper.
Step 2: Start on one side and cut fringe evenly spaced. Leave some space in the center.
Step 3. Turn it over and cut fringe on the other side, still not cutting too far into the center.
Step 4: Muss up the fringe on each side, separate the layers and scrunch it with your fingers.
Step 5. Et voila! Unroll and hang your fringey streamers and celebrate!

(I was wearing those stripey socks because I was cold but somehow they became the stars of the photos.)

    Beautiful! I am planning on a ribbon wall hanging behind the alter at my wedding, but this would be beautiful too! (and cheaper) Gorgeous! Either way, this will definitely be used at a party in my future.

    What a cute idea! Sometimes I like to plan my future children's birthday parties in my head. As of today, these Fringey Streamers are on my future children's party decor list.

    Thanks for another hanging treatment DIY, Jordan. So pretty! I sewed streamers into ruffles for my daughter's party – similar but different.

    This is great! I can't find the sheets locally. So, do you mind sharing how much you bought? I don't want to get too few to decorate with for my son's bday this month!

    Oh so pretty! I love your site and have linked to it from my photography FB site. My 50th is coming up this August and I’m going to throw myself a party on our new patio (the concrete is being poured as I write this!). The colors you use are so cool and fresh! Does anyone know if Michael’s carries the crepe paper in sheets? I live in the Sacramento area.
