From glitter-dipped balloons to party hats, to awesome photo backdrops to a mirror ball, there are lots of great DIY New Year’s Eve décor ideas for you to add a little sparkle, a little confetti, and a ton of party fun to your celebration.
Ringing in the New Year signals a restart. It’s time to make things fresh and new again. It’s a time to mark an end and invite a new beginning. It’s definitely a time worthy of celebration. Here are some tips to make your New Year’s Eve décor sparkle on a budget!
- Shop the dollar store. The dollar store is full of items like stemware and flatware that are ready for a makeover. Add a little paint and glitter, and voila!
- Repurpose holiday and party leftovers. Leftover décor for holiday parties, birthdays, and even weddings can be repurposed into New Year’s décor.
- Add sparkle and glam. New Year’s is all about the glitz and glitter. Add silver and gold paint and accents, along with lots of glitter and you’ll be ready to party. If you want to be eco-friendly at the same time and avoid plastic, get some pretty biodegradable glitter!
