The countdown is on to New Year’s Day, but there is still time to create DIY party favors and decor for your New Year’s Eve party. If you are like me, your budget (and time!) is stretched to it’s limits after the holiday season so you are probably looking for high impact, budget-friendly decor ideas that don’t take a lot of time out of your day to complete. As a paper crafter you probably have most of the supplies on hand to create these fun party supplies and you can even up-cycle some of your holiday decor which is a win in my book!
A party just isn’t a party without confetti. Create confetti filled favors, sprinkle it on your tables for a festive touch, or toss it in the air as the clock strikes midnight. The best part is confetti is basically free as any paper can be used, the only investment is your time and because it is so easy to make, why not enlist the kids to help create it while you work on the rest of your party preparations.
Top off your New Year’s Eve party with a festive DIY paper party hat. From whimsical to elegant, you are only limited by your imagination. Create them in colors to match your party’s theme or color scheme.
Make some noise! Usher in the New Year with these fun noisemakers that will make your party pop and make a great gift for your guests to take with them.
These finishing touches will ensure your party is one for the ages. Create a photo backdrop for the fun pictures that are sure to end up on social media (#bestNYEpartyever), give your guests a midnight kiss, and dress up your adult beverages with free printable labels.
Do you stay up to usher in the New Year or turn in early?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
