These DIY crepe paper swirlers are really simple to make, but they are so fun to play with! If you like taking pictures while waving sparklers around, these are a good indoor alternative. I made these with New Years Eve in mind, but I think they’d be fun for any party. You could even make some matching confetti throwers!
Step 1: Use a straight edge cutter to cut your crepe and tissue paper into strips, about 1/4″ wide and in various lengths.
Step 2: Stack the strips one on top of the other so that the tails don’t line up – the swillers look best with some long strips, some short, and everything in between.
Step 3: Gently double knot the string around the strips, leaving the tails several inches long.
Step 4: Tie a small knut on top of this knot. Trim off one string tail.
Step 5: Use clear tape to attach the other string tape onto the end of a wooden dowel.
