How to Make Fancy Paper Streamer Garland - Thursday Two Questions Meme #154

Fancy paper streamers intertwined
Every year I get so excited about Trinity's Birthday. I thought and planned long in advance. We've made a tradition of decorating for each others birthdays. The birthday person's room and and our living areas are the prime targets.
I had a lot of different color paper streamers and wanted to use them in this year's decorations. So instead of hanging one color, I intertwined the paper streamers and made them into garlands.
I think the paper streamers look more dressed and festive when they are bounded together. Not to mention, they become more resilient double-ply. Below are the steps.

1) Meet the corners.
2) Tape the corners of both colors- so that it will stay put while you are working.
3) Flip the first streamer over, in the case, it is the yellow, so that it is on top.
4) Flip the second streamer over, in this case, it is the red, so that it now sit on top.
5) Repeat the process until desire length.

  1. This is awesome. I tried to do a streamer "thingie" for my boys joint birthday party last month & it was a disaster. I wanted it to run the length of my deck outside and all I ended up with was a bunch of ripped paper and scraps - I wish I had this last month :)

    1. Oh, I wish you had it too. It would stay so nicely. You can stretch the garland and pull it, and it doesn't lose its shape either.

  2. I agree, multi colored streamers always look more festive. We always decorate for our children's birthdays. Ever child should wake up and get to see all the neat decorations meant just for them!

    1. Yes. I agree. Ever since we did the decorations, it has been quite fun to try and top the next ones. :-)

  3. 1) Do yo get excited for your children's birthdays?
    I used to when the children were younger!

    2) Do you decorate for your family's birthdays?
    Yes, but that was a long time ago. Now they just want to go out with their friends.

    1. The older they get the less excited about their birthdays...but we still try to bring back the fun.

  4. You did an awesome job with the decorations. I love the colours you used.They must have made Trinity's birthday very special. When my twin was alive we would do some decorating for our birthday especially with the cards we got, However we really went to town with decorating at Christmas!:) Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks Judy! She did have such a wonderful Birthday! Although I am starting to put things in her ears that we can't do "big" birthdays anymore..we have to scale down to intimate sessions. :-d

  5. I remember doing garlands as a kid.
    Now I'd have to learn again :)

    I worry about my kids birthdays. I don't have the $$ to get what they so desire or go where they'd like and so I worry. Because I just want them to be happy.
    So when we can do it. I feel so glad for them.

    I don't decorate for other family stuff unless it's a combined effort etc.

    1. Don't they look pretty? I am sure there are many ways to do them and they can look so festive!

  6. I am so glad you posted this! I used to make these as a kid..... I totally forgot about them.... Thanks so much for posting... :)
