Do you have tons of scraps of tissue paper and gift wrap laying around from opening presents? Do you have extra ribbon scraps hiding in baskets and drawers in your craft space? Then you have everything you need to create your own confetti for New Year’s Eve! This is a great project for the kids to roll up their sleeves and help you make something fun for the big night.
- Decorative paper-tissue paper, wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper, etc
1. I know this is so simple that you probably don’t need directions, but it goes. Gather all of the paper and ribbon scraps that you can find.
2. Cut or tear the scraps into small pieces and store in a special bag or container.
3. When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve throw your confetti into the air and celebrate a great 2012 while welcoming in a new year full of opportunities. If your kids are too young to be able to stay up until midnight, have your own party a little earlier in the night. You can count down the seconds to an earlier hour, throw your confetti high, and toast with your cups of sparkling grape juice as you say goodbye to 2012.
You can also use ribbon scraps and pipe cleaners to make your own New Year’s headband(check out the tutorial here).
We hope you have a Very Happy New Year!
