Day #6: Windsock

Remember windsocks? You used to see them everywhere, now you don't. Bring them back with this easy craft that uses little more than streamers and an embroidery hoop. Just tape streamers to the hoop, tie a string around the top to hang and ta-da: Windsock. For the complete tutorial, visit The Mommy Huddle.

Day #5: Award Ribbon Napkin Rings

Something else to bring back: Napkin rings. These award ribbon-inspired napkin rings add extra charm to any party place setting.

Day #4: Party Lanterns

A plain mason jar becomes an lantern with a few lengths of streamers. The crepe paper will diffuse a candle's (or LED's) light into a stained glass-like glow.

Day #3: Faux Peonies

No one could believe that these peonies were fake...or that they could be made from streamers.

Day #2: Tablecloth

Woven streamers make an impressive (and inexpensive) alternative to typical tablecloths.

Day #1: Temporary Wall Decor

If you want to temporarily dress up a wall without reaching for paint, just stick up streamer stripes using double-stick tape.
