I’ve found the easiest way to make a beautiful centerpiece or back drop for a party – layer crepe paper streamers! They are affordable, plus a huge installment can be put together no matter your crafting skill level, in about 20 minutes.

To make the layered streamer centerpiece, start with a piece of wood and begin gluing streamers onto the bottom. Layer in 6-10 lines of streamers, layering colors as you go. The black, white and metallic combo is great for New Years Eve.

Measure first the area you’d like to cover and cut your streamers just a bit longer. Once you’ve hung the piece start cutting in at the most outward layer. Cut at varying lengths until it looks just right!
