Big Fringe Garlands

Here  is a party idea that could be used for decoration, a photobooth, or even hung as a garlands. Big curtains of fringe make a huge impact and are so easy to make. Click through here to find the easy step-by-step instructions.

Materials Needed: Folds of Crepe Paper (buy the good stuff here or the cheap stuff here) , Scissors, Tape

Step 1:  Cut the roll of crepe paper in half (you may need a box cutter for this)
Step 2: Take the roll of crepe paper and with another person’s help, have each person stand at an end and pull until most of the stretch from the paper has been removed. (To speed up the process you can do these two at a time.)
Step 2: Fold the paper together.
Step 3:  Begin cutting fringe halfway through the fold, leaving some space in the middle.
Step 4: Turn the fold over and finish cutting the opposite side of fringe. Be sure to not cut all the way through.
Step 5: Attach one side to the ceiling and let the other side fall to the ground. Twist the bottom to create twists in the crepe paper. And you are done!

    Thanks! I really love this idea, and am ordering rolls right now, in fact. For my wedding reception photo booth in one month!

    Practical question for actually making this happen:

    This may be very obvious to most, but I’m confused about Step 1 of your instructions! “Cut your roll of crepe paper in half.” Before I cut a roll in half the wrong way, can you pretty, pretty please explain? Do you cut the 19″ width in half (yielding two 9.5″ x 98″ segments)? Because to me it looks like your fringes are a full and beautiful 19″ wide! Or do you mean the 98″ length?

    PLEASE ADVISE :) and thanks!
