Here is an idea for a party or wedding that could be hung as garland, used for a photo booth, behind a desert table, or anywhere you see fit. It is easy to make and adds a huge impact!
You will need: Folds of crepe paper, scissors & tape
Step 1: Cut the roll of crepe paper in half.
Step 2: Take the roll of crepe paper, with another persons help, and pull until most of the stretch is gone. Then, fold the paper together.
Step 3: Begin cutting fringe halfway through the fold, leaving some space in the middle.
Step 4: Turn over and begin cutting the other side of the fringe, making sure not to cut all the way through.
Step 5: Using tape, attach one side to the ceiling letting the other side fall to the ground. Twist the bottom to create twists in the crepe paper… and you’re done!
