It’s always a little bit nostalgic to see a year come to a close. Every year, once the holidays are over, you start to reflect on what you did, what you wish you did, and who you met. You also start to think ahead to what you hope to accomplish in the year to come.
During these last few days of December, there is still room for celebration. Although one year is over, it’s time to ring in the New Year with glitz, glamour, and festivity. Will you be hosting a New Year’s Eve party?
If you’re playing host to this year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, we want you to have a house you love. Say hello to the new year with these fun, easy-to-make DIY New Year’s decorations you can use for years to come!
Chalkboard Party Hats
What would a New Years celebration be without party hats? These DIY chalkboard party hats allow you to reuse these every New Years! How awesome is that? Decorate them yourself, or make them and let your friends decorate them when they arrive.
Helium Balloons and Pictures
Are you ringing in the New Year with some of your closest friends? Show off your favorite memories by hanging pictures from helium balloons. They’ll spark conversation and be the perfect way to reminisce with your best friends on all the fun you had in the past year. What better way to set the tone for another great year with the people you love?
Sequin Photo Booth
Photo booths are still super popular at parties. It’s a good way to get pictures of people having a great time with a beautiful backdrop. You simply use a large hole punch to make circle cuts out of metallic gift wrapping paper! If you’re not a fan of pictures, this would also look great behind your drink table!
Ball Drop Cake Pops
Add some sweetness to your celebration with these ball drop inspired cake pops! Just make cake pops like you normally would and then douse them with edible glitter! Yes, edible glitter does exist! If you can’t find it at your local grocery store, try looking in the bakery aisle of your local craft store. Creating these little treats is sure to get people talking!
If you don’t mind a little mess for the sake of looking totally awesome, create some confetti balloons! Pop these bad boys when the clock hits midnight and watch the confetti fly! It will be as if you and your friends were in Times Square!
