Hi all! I am so thrilled to be back here with Jen celebrating the holidays! I wanted to share with you a super easy and quick craft to whip up for New Year’s Eve. Whether you are having a big ole party or just hangin in your pj’s….this DIY New Year’s Eve Ball is sure to be a hit! These are perfect for the kids to whip up. This one ball took me 3 minutes to make….I love a quick craft!!
1 piece 12 by 12 sparkly paper
2 paper fasteners or brads (I found these large sparkle ones at Michael’s)
scissors or rolling cutter
ruler or straight edge
thread for hanging
cut 8 strips of that are about 1 inch (easiest to do with a ruler and rolling cutter)
punch a hole in the top and bottom on the strip of paper
use a fastener to gather the top
use a fastener to gather the bottom
Fan strips out to create a ball shape
attach some fishing line or thin string to hang from the ceiling or light
I think the glitter scrapbook paper makes a perfect sparkle for New Years….but you could really do this for any occasion. I found the that heavier cardstock works better than the thinner paper…just something to keep in mind….
I hope you can come by and see me at CleverlyInspired…..I would love to share some more clever ideas with you:)
