10 New Uses Tuesday {Crepe Paper}

Welcome all!! 
Are you ready for another 10 New Uses Tuesday?!
This week we are talking about ….
Crepe Paper!
1. Wrapping presents; you know ribbon gets expensive, especially during the holidays. This will be a great addition to your wrapping arsenal. 
2. Mod podging- great for collage projects, or you can use it like Eric Carle uses tissue paper to add texture to paint. 
3. Add a ruffle to spruce up party hats, tutorial HERE.

4. Fall tree collage; cut up various fall colors and glue on a brown cut out of the hand and arm for a fun festive project. {coming later this week}
5. Rosettes… I know, you are so surprised that I made some rosettes lol. 
6. Party banner; fold various lengths over a string in coordinating colors. 
7. Music and movement streamers.
8. Wrapping wreaths; great for either a base color or to cover a wreath before you add an embellishment.
9.Topiary; tutorial HERE.

10. Festive Holiday cone decor; either candy corn and Christmas trees.
