Fringed Crepe Party Garlands

We love garlands. We love crepe paper streamers. And we love getting a little crafty! Victoria from asubtlerevelry.com has a super simple tutorial on how to create reams and reams of wonderful fringed garlands, perfect for adding a little fiesta fun to your party!

Make your own Fringed Fiesta Garlands:

  1. Stack four lengths of paper streamers on top of each other and pass them through the sewing machine (or stitch tightly by hand). 
  2. Fold the stack in half on the stitched line. 
  3. An optional step is to use pinking sheers on the edge, for extra texture and fluff.
  4. Fringe the length of the unsewn edge making sure not to cut through the thread. 
  5. When the fringing is complete, use your fingers to fluff the garland strands by separating the layers and ruffling the fringed edges.
  6. Find the perfect spot to hang your creation, sit back and appreciate your work!

The great thing about using crepe paper streamers to decorate your home, an event or a birthday party, is that the colour options are endless! Pick a selection of coloured creme streamers which will co-ordinate with your party theme or even just the time of year. We think Victoria’s choices of whites, greys, oranges and reds are perfect for an Autumn party.

Order some crepe paper streamers online at Flingers and you are sure to find the perfect colour for your crafty creation! Delivery starts from just £1.40. Or pop in store to pick out your favourite colour in person.
