Fringed Party Streamer Trees: Fun Holiday Decor

I have another fun holiday decor project to share –
It’s quick and easy and the two supplies needed
 can be found for just $1 a piece.
I’ve been a fan of crepe party streamers ever since I ran the first strip of them through my sewing machine two years ago to make this Ruffled Party Streamer Canvas. I love the fact you can find them in an array of colors and their inexpensive price tag is a plus as well. 
While the thought of a ruffled tree initially crossed my mind – I ended up going the easy route with this fun fringed tree – and I didn’t even have to pull the sewing machine out.

Materials Needed:
Cardboard Party Hat
Crepe Party Streamers
Tape
Tools Needed: 
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Begin by wrapping the streamer around your hand several times. I used two different color streamers for the this tree to I just fringed small batches of each color at a time.
Carefully slide the roll off your hand and begin fringing one edge by making straight cuts – every 1/4 inch – around the entire roll. Make sure the cuts only extend half way through the streamer {see guideline shown above}.
Unroll the streamer and fluff just a bit to separate the fringes.
Remove any existing embellishments to the party hat and begin layering on the fringed streamers.
Start at the bottom – securing the end of the streamer with a piece of tape - 
slightly overlapping each layer.

Use a tiny bit of hot glue to secure the very last layer at the top of the tree – so no tape shows.

To create an easy centerpiece
 I nestled our tree on a cake plate lined with a bed of marshmallows 
for the kiddies gingerbread house and cookie decorating party.
simple, quick, inexpensive and fun!
 Enjoy.

  6. Great little project for the kids I think. Bit late for Christmas now unfortunately for me but I can see several applications for this with a little tweak here and there.
