Streamer Chandeliers – a DIY Tutorial

Streamer Chandeliers – a DIY Tutorial

I ran across the idea for these streamer chandeliers on Pinterest one day. The original was huge and shrug from the very top of a giant tent for a wedding. Most people i know wouldn’t have a need at their parties for something that big, so i came up with this scaled down version that adds a great punch of inexpensive color to party decor.


12 inch embroidery hoop

3 rolls crepe paper streamers per chandelier, best if colors are limited to 2-3 per streamer chandelier

double stick tape

ribbon to hang

Determine the height your chandeliers need to be in the space you plan to hang them using a tape measure. Cut 30 or so streamers per chandelier.

Separate the embroidery hoop into two parts. Cut small pieces of the double sided tape at a time and apply to the inside of the embroidery hoop. Fold the end of the streamer over top of the hoop from the outside edge to the inside edge and press against the double sided tape until it is firmly adhered. Repeat the process around the embroidery hoop, overlapping the strips slightly. Use four to five strips of the same color in a row before alternating for the best results.

Tie three pieces of 18-inch ribbon to the hoop set at an equal distance. Knot the strings together in the center of the hoop to create a hanger for the chandelier. Be sure to trim down any long pieces of ribbon for a polished look. The streamers at the bottom can also be trimmed to equal lengths or left to pool on the floor.
