A little late, but I wanted to share my collective DIY NEW YEARS EVE PARTY DECOR Ideas that I found via email subscriptions, pinterest, and online in general. Some of these are spin offs from ones I have seen, and some are original 🙂 I do not normally decorate crazy for NYE but since this is the last one in our beautiful home, and I wasn’t ready to look at bare, show ready walls again, I went a little DIY wild. But it came together and was super beautiful, I thought so anyway :).
I could not decide what colors to go with, so I went with Black,White, and Gold. I don’t care much for complete fluidity and party do’s and dont’s when it comes to decorations. I like shiny stuff, hanging stuff, and fun personal decor!
Here is the low down on my supplies:
The garland and lights came from left over Christmas decoration too, so that came at $0 cost.
I highly suggest you buy a $25 laminator and thermal laminating sheets (10-50 packs range from $5-$18), if you do not own one already. I use it for so many home school projects and decorations, it is unreal.
Stay stocked with photo paper and ink for your printer. I use it for everything and all kinds of cool gifts.
I found some super cheap tissue paper on a after Christmas Sale, 78 sheets for $1, and I always need it for birthday gifts anyway.
Balloons are inexpensive, whether you blow them up yourself and hang them or get them inflated. I just did not have time to get inflated helium balloons.
Wooden dowels for the photo props were only $.20 each and I could cut those into threes. Checkout the craft section.
We always have fishing line, glue, scissors, glitter, and tape laying around too.
Wine bottle corks, we like wine
I found some gold “costume fabric” for $4 in a clearance bin and used it as my bar table cloth. It definitely gave that extra special touch:) And can be re used for other holidays/bdays. Or a costume cape! Recycle reuse!!
Internet search skills for pictures of clocks, numbers, new years eve signs, and cute clip art for signs I created.
Here are the decoration ideas and mini How-To’s!

*This wall actually turned into our photo prop wall! If I thought ahead for that, I probably would have put some garland around the top to look like a frame, and maybe hang our NEW YEARS RESOLUTION Paper Sign at the bottom. I forgot to take a picture of that, but it was just a big piece of paper from those big rolls (you can use a poster board) and I wrote “NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS” at the top and had everyone who attended write down their goals for the year. Cute Idea!
