New Years Eve Party Garland
Bring on the New Year! I love having older kids that can hang until the clock strikes midnight so this year, instead of leaving them with a sitter, we’re planning a family style New Year Eve party. I wanted a spot that the tweens/teens could use a selfie station but that could also double as a sitting area for adults so I headed to our local JOANN and got to work collecting this and that to create the perfect space. Once I got home, I whipped up an easy New Years Eve party garland in a matter of minutes!
Easy New Years Eve Party Backdrop
I found a handful of pretties in the most gorgeous golds to do just that! Keeping it simple, I started with 2 layers of a rose gold pink fringe paper from the party section at JOANN. There was enough to layer fringe all the way down to create a backdrop solo but I didn’t want it to be TOO busy so I settled on a few rows instead to create a banner.
Supplies to Make a New Years Eve Party Garland
- Glitter Cardstock, 12×12 x2
- Gold Fringe Ribbon
- Mini White Clothespins
- Cricut Die Cutting Machine, (OR pencil + scissors)
How to Make a New Years Eve Party Garland
- Create/Cut the numbers 2, 0, 1, 9 with your cutting machine (I have a Cricut Explore Air 2) but you can also cut these by hand, (draw block numbers on your gold card stock and cut out.) I sized mine just under 6″x”6.
- Tack up a strip of gold fringe ribbon the length of your backdrop.
- Hang each letter from mini clothespins, (I found mine in the paper aisle at JOANN) clipped directly onto the gold fringe ribbon.
Voila! Quick and easy New Years Eve bunting FTW!
I accented the rest of the space with beautiful XL ornaments in gold and rose gold hues and scattered matching mini ornaments across my pink couch. I love this garland that looks like little disco balls in the prettiest lavender gray hue that breaks up all of the golds going on and pulls my own decor in. Bet you thought those gorgeous glass champagne flutes (sparkling cider for us!) were a DIY but nope, JOANN made it extra easy and sells them as-is. Yesss!
I simply layered them on top of my grandmothers vintage gold tray and they are the perfect touch to polishing off this look.
I left a pile of the cutest gold and polka dot party hats, also from the party section at JOANN, on the tray for guests to use when the countdown starts. And, it happened to fit my Goldendoodle, Newman, perfectly! 😉
Pulling together a backdrop for New Years Eve, or any celebration, doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Head to your JOANN and be sure to browse ALL of the sections to simply grab what works for your own space!
