New Year’s Eve is such a wonderful excuse for glitter. While Christmas may seem flashy enough, I feel as though New Year’s is properly the night for glitz and the clashing of all things metallic. Brass, gold and silver – bring out all your New Year DIY decorations! It’s time to ring in the new year! I have had a few New Year’s gatherings in prior years and I feel like guests really get into the spirit when the decorations are out. And you can’t forget the decorative hats and irritating blowy-noise-makers that will add to the excitement.
Glitter Sign New Year DIY Decorations Project Supplies:
- Darice Beveled Wooden Numbers (2, 0, 1, 7 – or whatever year you’re celebrating!)
- 15 x 9 Inch Darice Wooden Pallet Sign
- Americana Decor Chalk Paint
- Mod Podge Matte
- Darice Gold Glitter
- Darice Foam Brushes
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Next, I called in the workers. Using Mod Podge Matte as our adhesive, the girls applied an even coat to every surface that required glitter. Some grown-up eyes had to go over the numbers a couple of times, but we managed to cover all of the surfaces.
I happily let the girls apply the glitter. Naively, I thought that this would mean that I wouldn’t have flecks of glitter on my face for days.
After both the pallet sign and the numbers had dried, I attached the numbers with a glue gun. And voila! Your festive New Year DIY decorations are ready to announce the dropping of the ball!
I think that the pairing of the sign with some gold and brass accents, as well as David Tutera’s gold and white tassel garland, adds to the festive feeling. Whether it’s setting the stage for a drink station, snacks, or simply adding to your decor, these New Year DIY decorations are a simple and easy way to set the stage for a fun New Year’s Eve party!
The wood numbers in this project can also be used for these mason jar New Year Decoration ideas.
