DIY New Years Eve Party Ideas

The year is quickly coming to end and as the holiday’s pass it’s time to ring in a new year. Our partying on New Year’s Eve usually consists of pajamas, board games, and watching the ball drop on TV. We might even get crazy and throw in a puzzle in there too. :) Most of the time the kids will fall asleep early but I usually like to make things exciting with a small party table and decorations. Over the years I’ve made DIY party hats and glittered cups for our fancy apple cider. I always enjoy doing small things like this for the kids. This year I’m planning a gold glitter party theme so I’ve been gathering ideas for inspiration. Today I’d like to share with you some New Year’s Eve party ideas you can easily make at home.

You can’t have a party without dessert and this ball drop cupcake tutorial is a winner in my book. They look really easy to make and they’re guaranteed to be a hit with the little ones.

I’m a big fan of pink and gold. I think these champagne cake pops are absolutely adorable!

Create an easy party backdrop with paper and a circle punch. This tutorial uses wrapping paper, which is a great way to get rid of any leftover from Christmas.

Glam up some inexpensive party cups with Americana Decou-Page and glitter. I’ve tried this project on wine glasses before and they turn out really pretty with gold glitter.

If you’re hosting a party download these printable sparklers tags to give out as party favors.
