Step 1. To begin your tutorial for these New Year decoration ideas, remove plastic tags from the wooden numbers. Place a number on a paper plate and brush Aleene’s Glitter Snow all over the front and sides of the number, using the foam brush.
Step 2. Sprinkle Darice extra fine glitter over the snow. Allow numbers to completely dry (about 2 hours).
Step 3. After the numbers are dry, turn each number over and glue ribbon tie to the back of the number.
Cut the glitter ribbons about 24 inches long, and glue onto the number with a hot glue gun. Let the hot glue cool completely for a minute.
Step 4. Tie the wooden glittered numbers to your silver mercury glass mason jars.
Insert votive candles into the mason jars for a pretty New Year’s centerpiece or decor accent.
