Crepe Paper Swirlers

by Kathleen Ballos

These DIY crepe paper swirlers are really simple to make, but they are so fun to play with! If you like taking pictures while waving sparklers around, these are a good indoor alternative. I made these with New Years Eve in mind, but I think they’d be fun for any party. You could even make some matching confetti throwers!

Supplies: Wooden dowels

, string
, small nuts
, crepe paper
, tissue paper
, scissors
, paper cutter
, tape

Step 1: Use a straight edge cutter to cut your crepe and tissue paper into strips, about 1/4″ wide and in various lengths.
Step 2: Stack the strips one on top of the other so that the tails don’t line up – the swillers look best with some long strips, some short, and everything in between.
Step 3: Gently double knot the string around the strips, leaving the tails several inches long.
Step 4: Tie a small knut on top of this knot. Trim off one string tail.
Step 5: Use clear tape to attach the other string tape onto the end of a wooden dowel.
