Easy DIY Streamer Garlands

by Michaela Egger

As an event designer I really love any super-quick and easy project. Jordan’s yellow party – awesome! And I don’t even know how often I’ve used her fringey streamers DIY by now. Whipping up lovely decor in bulk is pretty much one of my favorite things. So, today I wanted to show you one of my go-to DIYs when I need to decorate for a party and don’t have a lot of time. I’ve made bunting the regular way: cutting out shape after shape and attaching it to string. The end result sure is great, but really if you want to decorate a bigger space, it’ll take a long time to craft all those garlands. If you’re anything like me, you’ll love this simple way to create bunting from crepe paper streamers in no time at all!

Jordan is most definitely the queen of pinata crafting! I loved her mini pinata favors so much! I thought I’d come up with a slightly more simple pinata favor DIY. I think these little hexagon honeycomb shaped favor boxes and printable tags are perfect for a spring party and they won’t take super-long to make.
