DIY Streamer Backdrop

Did you know I used streamers for the chocolate & cherries buffet? If you went to the celebrations blog last week, you do. :-) If you didn't don't worry about it, I'll give you the same instructions so you can create your own!
Here's what you'll need...........
Materials Streamers, Scissors, Tape, & Poster board.


How To
Measure the streamer to fit the board with a little excess to wrap the end of the streamer to the back of the board.


Use the tape to stick each end top and bottom to the back Alternate colors creating vertical stripes.

Don’t pull streamer too tight, you’ll need some room to create the weave effect. After you’ve covered the board with stripes, start weaving the streamers in a horizontal pattern.

Remember your pattern combination used for each color and repeat it until you cover the board. If you don’t wish to do the weaving, you can stick with the stripes! They look just as nice. In fact I am using stripes for a shower at the end of this month.

Here’s the completed backdrop! I hope you’ll try it for your next desert buffet table!

Simple huh?
