Are you planning any get-togethers this Halloween season? If so, there are no shortages of adorable, themed food items for your spread but what about making the table area adorable? Backdrops can be tricky and time consuming but this one isn’t either of those things! Party Pail sent me an assortment of colored streamers and the orange, yellow and white were perfect for my candy corn themed fete.

- Double-sided tape (optional) //
Take your poster board and cut it in to a cone shape. I just eyeballed mine but you could be a lot more precise and draw it out first.
Use a glue stick and start sticking your yellow streamers along the bottom, don’t worry about the lengths of your pieces now, just make sure they hang longer than the board. Do 2-3 layers of yellow and then add orange several inches above, repeat a few rows and then apply white from the top down. I used double-sided tape to do the white because you’ll need the pieces to be stuck all down the sides for when you trim them since the tops may not hit the board at all and glue can show through slightly.
Flip your board over and trim around the edges (except the bottom). At this point it’s easiest to hang it on the wall so you can get a real idea of how your streamers will fall. Then trim each color fairly evenly across the bottom.
