New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and 2023 will be here before we know it! Whether you’re hosting a big New Year’s Eve party or just having a quiet night in, decorating your home is the best way to bring cheer and excitement to your celebration, no matter how big or small. Here are five easy DIY New Year’s Eve decoration ideas that can use year after year (just don’t forget to change the year!).
1. Welcome Your Guests with an NYE-themed Wreath
What better way to welcome guests to your NYE celebration than with an NYE-themed wreath hanging on your front door? If you’ve never made a wreath before, you might be surprised to learn just how easy it is, not to mention much less expensive than buying one! You’ll need a wire wreath frame to start, which you can find at any craft store or online. Use PVA glue (also known as wood glue or school glue) or hot glue to wrap the wreath frame in a silver or gold tinsel garland. Then add any decorations you like, such as colorful ball ornaments, bows, ribbons, or letter and number cut-outs to spell out the year or a “Happy New Year” message. Hang it on the door to get your guests excited about your NYE party the minute they arrive! Find more inspiration for your NYE-themed wreath at HubPages.
2. Create a New Year’s Eve Photo Backdrop
A New Year’s Eve celebration isn’t complete without some great photos to preserve the memories. All you’ll need is a few supplies from the dollar store and a blank wall on which to hang them. Start by cutting out numbers for the year and some circles on silver or gold glitter card stock. Hang a black plastic table cover on the wall and stick on the card stock cut-outs with tape or glue. Add silver or gold helium balloons, and there you have it–the perfect backdrop for all your NYE photos! Get step-by-step instructions at Somewhat Simple.
3. Dress Up Your Noisemakers
Noisemakers are a staple item for any New Year’s Eve celebration. So why not dress them up this year for some extra fun and fancy noisemaking? You’ll need solid-colored noisemakers, which you can find at most big-box retail stores or online. Then all you need to do is decorate them using whatever arts and crafts supplies you can find, such as paint, sequins, glitter, and streamers. Get inspired by the Dressed Up Noisemakers from Two Delighted.
4. Decorate Your Champagne Bottles
While this one can get a little messy, it’s worth it for the effect! Start by slathering PVA glue all over your champagne bottle, then sprinkle the bottle with confetti, sequins, or glitter. Allow it to dry, and that’s it! Your guests will be mesmerized! See what a decorated champagne bottle might look like at Hunted Interior.
5. Surprise Your Guests with Party Poppers
Make your own party poppers to add a surprise element to your celebration. First, you’ll need to decide what type of surprise you want to put inside your party poppers. This could be anything from candies to Mardi Gras-style bead necklaces or even personalized notes containing NYE wishes. Begin by collecting toilet paper rolls or cutting paper towel rolls in half. Place your surprise gifts inside the rolls, then wrap them in tissue paper. Twist the ends of the tissue paper, and use curling ribbon to tie them. Your guests will love popping them open to discover their surprises! Get more ideas for NYE party poppers at A Sparkle of Genius.
