This post is part of a mini series dedicated to easy party decorations. Last time I shared some of my favorite DIY balloon ideas and this time it’s all about streamers!
Here are 12 festive ways to decorate your next party using streamers:
1. Create a colorful backdrop
I used this tutorial to create the backdrop to my ice cream bar a while back so I can confirm that it’s very easy (and super cheap) to do. Of course you could vary the colors to match any party theme.

2. Wrap them around candle votives
This is a great way to upgrade simple candle votives and I love the ombre effect created on these particular ones.

3. Create a curtain
Want to divide a large room? Or simply frame a doorway or a window? Just use streamers!

4. Make a tablecloth
This is such a cute idea that I think I’m going to have to use it on a project soon. Again you can change the colors to suit any theme or even mimic flag colors (i.e. blue, red and white).

5. Tie them on the back of chairs
Seriously, how pretty do these chairs look?

6. Turn them into tassel garlands
I love decorating my food/drinks tables with tassel garlands but sometimes it can be hard to find ones that match my color scheme, are the right size and don’t cost the earth. This is the perfect DIY solution!
7. Make accordion streamers.
What’s even better than streamers? Accordion streamers of course!
8. Create a canopy
While slightly more time consuming, this canopy is actually pretty easy to achieve. The secret? A hula hoop! You could also place balloons at the center of the canopy for an extra wow factor.
9. Turn them into chandeliers
This is very similar to the idea above except that instead of weaving the streamers through the room, you just let them hang off your hula hoop or wire ring.

10. Make a table skirt
Use ribbons or paper streamers to create a gorgeous table skirt.

11. Make crepe paper confetti
Create a quick batch of homemade confetti by simply punching holes into crepe paper streamers. You could also cut them into different sizes.

12. Create a paper rosette
This tutorial does require a bit of time as well as a glue gun and styrofoam ball. However, it’s such a pretty project I couldn’t help including it. I think these would be especially perfect to decorate a Mother’s Day brunch or a baby shower.
