10 Last-Minute New Year’s Eve Ideas
Before you pack up all your Christmas ornaments, sort out those silver and gold bobbles…they’ll come in handy for your New Year’s decor! Hang them from the ceiling or gather them in a bowl or apothecary jar for a festive decoration that will liven up your home.
Turn a corner of your home into a fun photo booth! Use leftover ribbons or cheap streamers to create a fun backdrop and cut NYE letters out of posterboard. Decorate with balloons and you’ve got a fun photo area your guests will love!
Jell-O shots have gotten an upgrade! With these classy Champagne Jell-O Cups, you and your adult friends can enjoy a delicious and tasty start to 2017.
No NYE party is complete without poppers! But don’t go out and buy them…you can use leftover toilet paper rolls and any remaining Christmas gift wrap to create your own! Fill with confetti, candy, or wishes for a great new year.
Forget those cheap paper party hats…you can craft your own sparkly glitter hats using paper mache cones and fine glitter and tinsel. Attach your hat to a headband so you don’t have to worry about those uncomfortable elastic strings.
Whether you make your own or you decorate some store-bought cookies, these glittery fortune cookies are sure to delight. If you make your own, don’t forget to fill them with good fortunes for your guests!
Not everyone has a date on NYE…and for some, that’s A-O-KAY! But everyone deserves a little midnight kiss when 2017 makes its official appearance!
These free clock printables are great for attaching to goodie bags, hats, cupcake toppers, and more! Print out your own clocks from nobiggie.net.
If you’re having friends over throughout the day on NYE, it can be a loooong time until midnight. To help pass the time, print out some cards and get to know your guests and their hopes and wishes for the new year. You can print out your own set here.
Here’s another cute way to use any leftover gift wrapping supplies. Wrap bamboo sticks with gold pipe cleaners and top with a cute pom pom for a celebratory drink stirrer.
