Streamer Chandelier Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago a made this fun streamer chandelier to use as a focal point for my son's 2nd birthday party. I had seen a similar design on Pintrest where the steamer hoops were used as wedding decor but I wasn't sure how it was put together. 

The day of the party, I decided I the decor was lacking something. So, I started rummaging through my craft stuff. I came across my old needlepoint hoop and realized that I could use the hoop to drape the streamers through! Plus, I realized that I didn't need any glue or adhesives for the project, meaning the hoop could be re-used for future parties (or for it's original purpose)! 

The tutorial for this project is seriously simple! Click below to get the details!~


Steamer Chandelier 

Materials needed
Streamers
Needle point hoop, about 12" in diameter (can buy at most craft stores for about $2, or buy online here)
String 

Step 1. Lay materials out on a large flat surface. Remove the center ring from your needlepoint hoop. Begin to place streamers by looping them over the wooden circular frame, making sure to leave a few inches of slack at the top.



Step 2. Keep adding streamers until your hoop is full.


Step 3. Re-insert the center hoop so the streamers stay firmly attached. Tighten the metal clasp (shown below)




Step 4. Use a piece of string to tie wherever you please! I found that the streamer loop was better supported after tying the string in 4 different areas (equal distance from one another). You can cut the streamers to whatever length you wish.
