DIY: Ceremony Streamers

The ceremony sendoff is one of the best photo opportunities of the day, and this simple little DIY project will help make yours picture perfect. An alternative to traditional rice or bubbles, streamers will create a cool effect for post-“I do” pics. Here’s how to make them…

Gather These Supplies

  • Ribbon
  • Wood dowels
  • Eyelet hooks
  • Plyer
  • Spray paint

Step 1: Paint 

Start your project by spraying all of the wood dowels with the paint color of your choice (we went with a matte gold). Make sure to cover all of the surface. These will take some time to dry, so we recommend doing this step first and letting them sit overnight to set.

Step 2: Screw

This is the most labor-intensive step, but also the most important. Using your hands, screw the eyelet hook into the end of the dowel. Once you’ve got it sturdy enough, use the plyer to tighten. Make it snug!

Step 3: Tie

Once your hooks are secured in the wood, the last step is to add your ribbon. We double knotted it at the metal to make sure nothing came loose, and gave it a good wave to test it out.


 Now they’re ready for guests to wave at you on your way out!
