I love looking at images of flower torans, which are festive garlands hung in Indian households as celebratory decorations, and decided to figure out a crepe paper version. Torans are so fun - the patterns and colors are super cheerful. There are a million ways to use this technique – you can make a wall hanging, garlands, bunting, leis, etc., and you can scale them to suit whatever space you’re decorating. They would look great as a backdrop at a party or wedding!

Lately I’ve been super inspired by circuses and carnivals, so when I saw these mini horse figurines I couldn’t help but make a mini carousel to match. This carousel is not only a decorative centrepiece – it actually spins too! If you’re hosting a circus party, there are no shortage of fun projects for you to do: try these cotton candy invitations, circus party hats, & carnival cake toppers!
