crepe paper streamers
I spotted this neat idea for crepe paper streamers in this month's Better Homes & Gardens. An embroidery hoop is used as a base, then the streamers are wrapped over the top and secured with the hoop inset. I don't think it's terribly impressive as a single- but I think it could look really amazing grouped in multiples, or used as 'table decoration'. In a room full of these, it could be quite pretty (and very affordable). The instructions for this particular 'windsock' streamer calls for an 8 inch hoop, with 8 foot lengths of crepe paper, hung by fishing line.
