7. DIY Gold Fringe Garland
Highlight a food table, enhance a photo booth backdrop, or just hang on an otherwise boring wall. One thing’s for sure, this DIY Gold Fringe Garland is a show stopper. Made with several colors of crepe paper, the hard work is just a manner of sitting down to make the hundreds of cuts with a simple pair of scissors. Maybe pop on your favorite series on Netflix, grab a glass of champagne (this IS for New Year’s after all) and get DIYing!
If you don’t feel like making your own, you can purchase these at Etsy.
8. Light Up Wine Bottles
After the holidays, it’s no surprise that you probably have a ton of empty wine bottles lying around (not judging). Instead of recycling right away, why not use for some brilliant New Year’s eve decor? Strap on some goggles and get your husband (or you, if you’re comfortable with drilling into glass- I’m not!) to drill a hole into your bottles. Insert some string Christmas lights and enjoy watching the ball drop with these super cool ambient lights.

9. Sequin Letter Garland
If you don’t have a festive, metallic garland lying around already, now’s the perfect time to make one! I mean, how many other times during the year can you justify sequins? Speaking of sequins, you do NOT have to glue millions of tiny pieces to make this fabulous garland. Simple buy stretch sequin gold trim at your local craft or fabric store, cut out cardboard letters to make your phrase and GLUE. I can think of fewer more fabulous banners, can you?

10. Balloon False Ceiling
Like we’ve established already, balloons are a must at any true party. And why not have so many, you can create a false ceiling? Snag balloons in the colors to match your party, and blow them up. No helium is required on this DIY! Once you’re done inflating, string them together with ribbon and then string across the room, adding in hanging curling ribbon here and there. Voila!
