Crepe paper streamers are one of the cheapest decorations and they really go a long way if you know what to do with them. My Dream Party Shop has rounded up the best and most exciting examples of ways can you use crepe paper streamers to decorate your party from across the internet.

1. Decorating Large Spaces with Crepe Streamers

This blog post from online party resource Oh Happy Day shows how you can easily and cheaply fill a large space like a hall or a marquee with colour by using crepe streamers and hanging them across the ceiling.  Drape them a little to form a couple of loops and you instantly have a rainbow of colour, perfect for adding maximum impact as guests arrive.  Imagine how amazing this would look if you just used one or two colours as well.

Here is another stunning example from Kara's Party Ideas for a Lisa Frank Rainbow Inspired Party, showing another way to hang streamers across the ceiling.

 2. Decorating Ceilings with Crepe Streamers

Another twist on this idea is to hang the crepe streamers around a centrepiece in the middle of the room. We love this decoration by Swankyswell on Project Nursery Use honeycomb balls or balloons to create your focal point or you could use one of our large Disco ball shaped balloons alongside our silver crepe streamers.

3. Using Crepe Streamers to Decorate a Buffet Table

This is a super simple idea.  Just use the streamers to create a stunning pop of colour across the centre of a buffet table.  You could also use this idea along the whole of a party table.  Simply use some glue dots to stick the streamers to the table cover or double sided cello tape.

4. Create a Stunning Photo Backdrop

Create a picture perfect moment using crepe streamers as a backdrop. Stick your lengths of crepe paper to the wall using glue dots.  Then cover the top with one of our balloon garland kits or honeycomb balls. We love this pretty set up by Glorious Treats in particular.  Such pretty colours!

7. Use as a Balloon Tail

 A really simple way to give your helium balloons the wow factor is to add some pretty crepe paper streamers as balloon tails.  Make sure you are using larger helium balloons which are 18 inches or much much larger or the tails will be too heavy for your balloons and will affect their float time.

8. Create a Fringed Garland

Subtle Revelry showed us how to create a layered fringed garland using crepe streamers.  Mix and match your colours to create a bespoke garland to match your party.  Add as many streamers as you want to create different looks.  Hang horizontally or vertically in bunches.
