Before I get going, I want to say a big thank you to TODAY for featuring my DIY cage light ceiling fan yesterday!  You can check it out here.  Purdy excited about it!!!


Ok, so I’m working on putting together a little summer party for Izzy and her friends.  I’ve decided it needs some paper fringe to up the cute factor.  Fringe makes everything better 🙂  I made them out of crepe paper streamers since they’re so stinking cheap and you can get them in all sorts of fun colors.  They were simple to toss together so I wanted to share.


  • crepe paper streamers
  • scissors

STEP ONE:  Layer 6 lengths of streamer paper.  I made mine about 10 inches long.

STEP TWO:  Cut off the folded edges.

STEP THREE:  Fold the layers in half.

STEP FOUR:  Cut strips of fringe 3/4th the way up.

STEP FIVE:  Fold in half long ways.

STEP SIX:  Twist the folded top so it stays in place.

When I finished making a batch up I found myself wandering around the house with it and ended up in Izzy’s room.  See what I mean about fringe making everything better?!  Of course she now wants them to stay.  I just might need to make her some for her room now.
