Create your own festive upcycled New Year’s noisemakers from repurposed Christmas decorations! Gather the family together and spend an afternoon making sparkling New Year’s Eve party decorations (and memories!).  Plastic ornaments, curling ribbon, and jingle bells take center stage with a dazzling update courtesy of DecoArt® Galaxy Glitter™ now available at Shop.DecoArt.com  


DecoArt® Galaxy Glitter™ is a brush-on glitter acrylic that adds out-of-this-world shimmer and shine! Each color is loaded with astronomical amounts of glitter and has a higher concentration of glitter flakes compared to other glitter paints. With a variety of colors and sizes available Galaxy Glitter™ makes it easy to add a stellar sparkle to your crafting projects.

Items needed:

  • Galaxy Glitter 2 oz - Silver Moon
  • Galaxy Glitter 2 oz - Champagne Starburst
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Lamp (Ebony) Black
  • Clear plastic ornaments
  • Jumbo wooden craft sticks
  • Silver beads
  • Jingle bells, various sizes
  • Silver and gold curling ribbon
  • Black grosgrain ribbon
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Instructions:

Let's create some noisemakers! Remove the metal cap from the clear plastic ornament and fill the ornament up halfway with silver beads. Replace the metal cap. Paint outside of the ornament with Galaxy Glitter™ in Champagne Stardust using a flat paintbrush. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat. Once dry, flip ornament over and apply two coats, letting them dry in between.

Tie black grosgrain ribbon in a large bow. Measure and cut 24” of silver and gold curling ribbon, feed through back of bow and then thread on the ornament. Tie curling ribbon in a knot, securing the ornament onto the large black bow. Curl ribbon by pulling across the blade of an open pair of scissors and your thumb. Cut notches from ends of black ribbon to finish.

Basecoat the front, back, and sides of a jumbo craft stick with DecoArt® Americana® Acrylics in Lamp Black. I love Americana Acrylics for their one coat coverage on most surfaces. Apply two coats of Galaxy Glitter™ in Silver Moon to the front and back of the craft stick and let them dry completely.
