These crepe paper streamers create a lot of bang for your buck! They make such a big impact for not so much money. Super easy sewing. Straight lines, ladies. Set your tension high and make your stitches as long as they will go.
And I hung them over the island with beach balls!
I decided to hang a few streamers above the dining room table too.
4 tips for hanging the crepe paper streamers.
- I used tacks and it worked like a charm.
- Twirl the streamer as you hang.
- Don’t think about where your tacking, just go with it!
- I had much better luck hanging them from the the celling versus hanging on a wall. I wish I would have taken a picture of my streamer hanging situation above the mirror below. It wasn’t cute.
The beach balls were a dollar each at Target, and a little trickier to hang. I used fishing wire and tacks. Making them level was hard and why the middle one is a few inches higher!
One thing to notice, the yellow streamer is only one single streamer with a stitch right down the middle. This one is definitely the easiest to make, and still looks good hanging up. (See above the kitchen island.) If you’re nervous, try making that version first!
Just for fun, here is my sewing machine in action.
When you sew, set the rolls like this under your chair:
Ruffles make most things cuter, right? 🙂 Do you have tips for party decor in big spaces and high ceilings? I thought about making tissue paper balls…
p.s. Hobby Lobby, Wal Mart and Target all have different shades of crepe paper. I found 3 different shades of blue at different stores.
