I found a tutorial a long time ago on how to make this, but I couldn’t find it again to link to so I made my own. Ruffled crepe paper is a cheap and super easy decoration alternative. I made a bunch of it last fall for the BF’s Grandmas 80th birthday party and it was a hit. It looks 10x nicer than plain crepe paper. I wish I had taken photos of it from her party, but unfortunately as normal I forgot.
Step 1: Choose your colors! These could be your wedding colors or accent colors. For this tutorial I chose lime green and fuschia. You can also use three colors and just cut it into long strips and inter mix the three, a little more challenging but that is how I did the red, yellow and orange combo above.
Step 4: Keep sewing until you get your desired amount, it really isn’t a labor intensive process just tedious! If you know how long you need your streamers to be for decorating I would pre-measure and cut strips of the crepe paper to sew, just make sure you add a little extra to cover the ruffling.
There are so many uses for this beyond just streamers, it could be tied to chairs or laid on a table as a fun runner. I have even used it to decorate gift packages!
