New Year's Eve Decorations

Dec 26, 2012

The New Year is right around the corner and what better way to ring in the New Year than with hats, poppers and confetti. Of course having fun with friends or family will really make the New Year, but having some fun decorations certainly can’t hurt.

Whether you’re throwing your own party or if you’re going out on the town, make these simple decorations and make this New Year’s one to remember.

New Year’s Hats

Materials:

  • card stock or construction paper
  • a hold punch
  • ribbon 
  • tissue paper
  • glue
  • various bits of scrapbooking paper

Instructions:

  1. Curve the hat so it forms a point and glue the sides together. Let dry.
  2. Punch holes on either side of the bottom rim and tie the ribbon through to make a strap.
  3. Use tissue paper and scrapbooking paper to decorate the hat anyway you want. Think about using a clock design for New Year’s, or glitter or stickers… anything!

New Year’s Poppers

Materials:

  • Toilet paper tubes
  • Wrapping paper / tissue paper
  • Curling ribbon
  • X-acto knife / Scissors
  • Tape
  • Pin or needle
  • Embellishments (ribbon, stickers, spray glitter, etc.)
  • Candy / party favors

Instructions:

  1. Cut the paper tube in half using the X-acto knife or scissors.
  2. Put the tube together and wrap it with tissue paper. Make sure to leave about 2 inches on the ends of the tube and leave them open.
  3. Fill the tube with candies or party favors. Tie the ends of the tissue paper with curling ribbon.
  4. Add whatever embellishments you want to decorate the poppers. Try to stay clear of the middle where the two tubes are next to each other.
  5. Using the needle poke small holes along the seam where the two tubes are next to each other. This will help “pop” open the popper when midnight strikes!

Matchbox Confetti

Materials:

  • Matchboxes- either from a craft store or collected empty boxes
  • Paper
  • Confetti- either from a craft store or recycled hole punches
  • Twine

Instructions:

  1. Wrap the matchboxes with paper. Make sure to leave the sides where the box slides out clear.
  2. Fill the inside box of the matchbox with confetti.
  3. Tie the boxes closed with the twine so the confetti doesn’t go everywhere- at least not yet.
  4. At midnight open and shake the confetti out!

What's Your New Year's Resolution?

  • Be More Green! Recycle and Reuse more often.
  • Get Outside More. Get fresh air and the blood pumping.
  • Read more. I've got a big, long reading list.
  • I don't make resolutions, that way it's easier to keep them.

Im sorry your going through this horribles time with your parents. Im sorry for saying this but your dad is insensitive and hes not showing you love even if he does love you. I dunno what to say cos I would feel the way you does too :/ When it comes to your mum it must of been upsetting to hear her tell her friends that your the lazy and then saying to you that shes gonna leave you and your brother cos you doesnt appreciate what she does for you.  Im thinking she could do with some more help from you with the chores if you doesnt help already.  Is there any way you could say you want to have the chat with her and then tell her how your feeling and say you dont want to be called the lazy brat and what is it that your not doing that she wants you to. I really hopes it works out and good luck :angel :love

Most murders are done by gangs or robberies or things of that nature. A murderer should be put through a refining jail system that provides resources needed to have them become a more productive member of society. And, even if it is rooted in mental illness to an extreme, why should they be killed themselves for doing something that was not their fault? If they can be rehabilitated or treated for their mental illness, then they should have those resources provided to them. There is no justification for the death of another human being....for the death of another human being.
