I love this time of year when we start discussing Halloween costumes in our house and pull out all our Fall decorations. Here is a Halloween tutorial that I created for the Fall Issue of The Party Dress Magazine. I used glass milk bottles, but you could easily use paper cups or even water bottles.
Black and Orange Crepe Paper
Step 1. Measure and cut a 36" piece from both the black and orange roll.
Divide the black piece in half, cutting down the center.
Step 2. Place the black crepe paper in the center of the orange. Pin down the middle to secure.
Step 3. Remove pins and bunch the crepe paper with your fingertips as you sew a straight stitch down the center of your crepe paper.
Step 4. Cut the sewn crepe paper ruffles into (roughly 9") pieces that fit around the milk bottle. Tape one end of the ruffle directly to the milk bottle, then wrap the ruffle around the bottle and secure with more tape.
