crepe paper fringe

When you want to drape a doorway or party space with something decidedly more exuberant, cut curvaceous streamers from what's called a "fold" of crepe paper (a single sheet that's about two feet wide by eight feet long). Snip them along the edges with fringe scissors for a fluttering texture, then gently twist the crepe to give it shape.

Step 2

Unfurl fold of crepe. Using width of template as your guide, accordion-fold full length of crepe. Align dotted edges with folded sides of crepe paper and trace with pencil. Cut out, leaving folded edges intact.

Step 3

Fully unfold garland, and gently twist crepe to give it shape.
