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.
