{because pinata fringe belongs everywhere}

fringe layered garland

One of the things I love about pinatas is how pretty their fringe is. So why not bring that same gorgeousness onto the walls and other party decor. The same simple steps can be used to create soft, fluffy strands of garlands. Aren’t they delightful? The gorgeous texture of these streamers in their pretty fall hues will bring a fun dose of festive to your home this season.

To make the streamers; stack four lengths of paper streamers on top of each other and pass them through the sewing machine (or stitch tightly by hand). Fold the stack in half on the stitched line. An optional step is to use pinking sheers on the edge, for extra texture and fluff.

Fringe the length of the unsewn edge making sure not to cut through the thread. When the fringing is complete, use your fingers to fluff the garland strands by separating the layers and ruffling the fringed edges.

    These are so fabulous!! I had no idea these were so easy to make…time consuming, yes, but that’s what movie marathons are for, am I right?! :) Thank you for the tutorial, I will definitely be trying it.

    I’ve always loved the tissue festooning you can buy at party stores, but for the price I knew there must be a better way. Crepe paper streamers are so inexpensive and come in every color and pattern under the sun…this is a great idea for using them in a new way!

    I actually just posted another idea for using crepe paper streamers on my blog today: DIY crepe paper streamer placemats! I’d be honored if you’d pop by and take a peek at handcraftedparties.com.
