Easy New Year’s Eve Decorations

Easy New Year’s Eve Decorations

After all the preparation that goes into Christmas, we tend to forget about decorating for New Year’s Eve! Jazz up your NYE festivities with these easy New Year’s Eve decorations that don’t take a lot of time or effort, but can make a big impact on your party.

Glitter Decorated Champagne Bottlesglitter-champagne

  • Champagne Bottle
  • Loose Glitter
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Spray Adhesive

Start by wiping your champagne bottle clean and patting it dry to make for a smooth surface for the glitter to adhere to. Starting at the bottom, spray the adhesive evenly around the full circumference of the bottle and then immediately sprinkle with glitter. Repeat this process until the bottle is covered in the desired amount of glitter from bottom to top. Let the bottle dry for a few hours before touching it.          

Thumbtack Embellished Votive Candlesvotive-candles

  • Votive Candles (Be sure they don’t have any coating or are in any container)
  • Gold Thumbtacks

For this easy New Year’s Eve decoration, simply push your gold thumbtacks into the votive candle in concentric circles until the candle is decorated to your liking. You can do one row, a pattern, or fill the entire candle with thumbtacks, whatever you prefer.

Tinsel New Year Signtinsel-sign

  • Cardboard Numbers – any height you want
  • Glue Gun
  • Tinsel

First, you’ll need to cut out the numbers or letters you’ll want to showcase covered in tinsel. Once you have the cardboard cutouts, simply begin to wrap them in tinsel, and glue down the tinsel as you go. It’s best to distribute glue over a portion of the cardboard and then wrap the tinsel around immediately so it will stick to the cardboard. Having the tinsel overhang or not all be glued down is okay, as the hanging parts of the tinsel will add character and life to your craft. Once complete, and all the cardboard is covered in tinsel, hang the message on the wall, or prop it up on a shelf for all to see at your NYE party.

Last, our gift baskets make great New Year’s Eve party host and hostess gifts!
