DIY New Year's Eve ball  (1)


Supplies for one ball: (I would make a bunch and hang them up at different levels…so pretty!)

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

hole punch

thread for hanging


DIY New Year's Eve ball  (7)


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….
