Paper Perfect Halloween

You can pick up crepe paper streamers at your local dollar store two for a dollar! The crinkly paper is perfect for Halloween décor cheap!!!

First off, did you know you can dye crepe paper?  Fill a spray bottle with some water mixed with food coloring. spritz the top edge of a roll of crepe paper until you’ve got the color you want and then let it dry.  Custom crepe paper!

Try a crepe paper wreath, make rows of loops and secure them to a wreath form with some simple pins.  Add a crepe paper bow and flowers and you’ve got a spooky wreath the cost a couple of bucks.

If you’re not into the loops, accordion fold several layers of crepe paper onto itself and cut feather   shapes.  Glue the feathers onto the wreath form for a feathered, fringy look.

You can also use crepe   paper to make a great fringe for a cone or hat. 
Use poster board to make an oversized cone. 

Using a glue stick, secure crepe paper several times around the outside edge of the cone.  Use scissors to cut fringe and add some ribbon trim to mask the raw edges.

Easy and inexpensive crepe paper décor for your Halloween celebration. I’m Mrs. Fixit and it’s just that simple.
