Supplies Needed

  • 5/8 inch hook screw
  • Wood rod
  • 9 ribbons

Step 1

First, take your 5/8 inch screw hook and twist it into the top of the rod. It may take some pressure to screw it into the wood.

Step 2

Next, take 9 ribbons (3 white, 3 red and 3 blue) that are between 2 and a half to 3 feet long and feed them through the hook.

Step 3

Feed all of the ribbons halfway through the screw until they are even on both sides. Then tie a knot around the screw using all of the ribbons so that you only have one knot.

Step 4

After the ribbons are knotted and pulled tight, then you are ready to shake your streamers!
