Every party could use a fringe backdrop!
It’s our standby: we string up streamers to decorate the dance hall. Crepe paper strands seem to get the party started every time. Now, add to it!
Miranda Thompson shows how to use a mega roll of crepe paper to make a fabulous fringe backdrop.
Make a Fringe Backdrop
- Rolls of Crepe Paper
Step 1: Cut the roll of crepe paper in half or in thirds (Miranda likes to mix hers up to create some dimension)
Step 2: Take the roll of crepe paper, unroll a bit, and stretch it. You can use two people to do this, or just secure one end with your forearm on a table surface and then stretch the other end. Be careful not to rip them!
Step 3: Fold the paper together. (Miranda does 4 or so folds)
Step 4: Begin cutting fringe halfway through the fold, leaving some space in the middle.
Step 5: Turn the fold over and finish cutting the opposite side of fringe. Be sure to not cut all the way through!
Step 6: Attach one side to the ceiling, a doorway, a window, get creative with it! Then let the other side fall to the ground. Twist the bottom to create twists in the crepe paper.
