Here’s a terrific idea to add a burst of color to your reception tables, and its all done with…. crepe paper of all things!

Here’s How To Do It:

Our DIY Team here at has created these simple instructions for you to recreate this look. Create your own colorful custom candle holders by getting standard clear cylindrical votive holders, and well as clear cylindrical pillar candle holders (in varying heights if you can find them…) and some crepe paper streamers in the colors of your choice.

Using craft glue, carefully wrap a length of streamer around the candle holder and glue into place. You’ll want to apply a thin coating of glue over the entire surface of the streamer in order to get a consistent, non-clumpy look. Combine colors on taller candle holders as shown in the photo to really punch things up.

Crepe Paper Table Runner

You can create a coordinating custom table runner using crepe paper streamers as well for a look that is really well put together. Just stretch lengths of crepe paper streamer from one end of the table clear across to the other, allowing the streamers to drape over the side of the table all the way down to the end of the table cover. Place the streamers in parallel rows, making sure to keep the space between the streamers consistent.

Crepe paper streamers are sold in rolls where ever party supplies are sold. For best color selection, go to a specialty party supply store.  Best part is, all the supplies needed for tables that look like this are so inexpensive! Be sure to check the dollar store for the candle holders – the larger dollar stores should have what you need.  Have fun!
