Fun DIY party decorating ideas you can recreate using only streamers!
When it comes to party decor, there are few decorations that are more effective or more versatile than party streamers. They were one of our favorite decorations as kids, because you could drape them across the entire party, or use them to create a fun curtain in your doorway that kept out the grown-ups. Even as adults, streamers are nearly limitless with the amount of creations that can come from them and they are an essential for any great party.
These fun and festive ribbons come in a number of different sizes, patterns and colors, allowing them to be used for virtually any kind of decorating—baby showers, birthday parties, graduation events, bachelorette parties, etc. However, if you really want to show off your party decorating skills, here are a few unique DIY decor projects that you can recreate at home using party streamers.

1. Photo Booth Background
Photo booths are becoming one of the hottest trends for parties right now. However, you do not have to spend a fortune on a professional photo booth rental in order to get this effect at home! Instead, choose a blank wall in your home and string up streamers to create a fun and festive background. Also be sure to set out fun props, such as feather boas, hats or silly glasses so that your guests can have fun with their photos! Next, set up a table nearby with a few disposable cameras or Polaroid’s for instant photo memories!

2. Dinner Table Tent
Are you holding an outdoor dinner party, but want to brighten up the scenery? Simply use party streamers to create a custom overhang tent that will serve as a unique statement piece for your party! To recreate the look above, simply fasten three poles in a triangle shape above your table. Next, drape different colored ribbons across all three poles, taping them down if necessary so they stay in place. If you do not want the poles to show, simply wrap them with a colored ribbon so they match the rest of the decor!

3. Carnival Tent
Another fun way to create a tent out of party streamers is to use a hula-hoop to create a carnival-effect! This look is perfect for a child’s birthday party or any event where you’ll be playing lots of games. Simply wrap the ends of different colored streamers around a hula hoop and use glue to secure the end. Take the other side of each colored ribbon and drape it across to another point in the room, using tape to secure it. It will create the effect above, containing your entire room in a festive circus tent! For full instructions, read this online tutorial.

4. Custom Colored Table Runner
Having trouble finding a table runner to match your party theme? Simply use party streamers to create your own DIY table runner by weaving different colored ribbon together. To get the look above, simply lay down 5 streamers horizontally in one color on your table, using tape to secure them down so they don’t fly away. Next, begin to place a different streamer color vertically on top of the first color, weaving the streamer above and below to get a “stitching” effect. You can incorporate as many different colors as you would like!
