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!
