How to Make Hanging Party Decorations

I decided to make some hanging decorations for Allie's birthday party last minute.  I had seen some of these and decided to copy them:


I doubled up on the tissue paper, since they were supposed to hang on trees and I didn't want the wind destroying them.


I folded them accordion-style, then glued the ends together so it was one big accordion-folded piece.


I pinched one end and stapled it together as close to the edge as possible.


Then I brought each side together to form a circle and glued those ends together.



I taped a piece of string to one end and that was it!


These ended up inside, and a little tattered after a storm came in right before the party started.

Stay tuned for the rest of Allie's party decorations...

I am posting this HERE.
