My husband’s birthday is New Year’s Eve and my Mom’s birthday is New Year’s Day. (Crazy, I know….my brother’s is on Christmas Day, too!) We’re having a little New Year’s Eve / birthday party, so I needed a new sparkly wreath for the celebration! I made this festive New Year’s Eve Wreath in about 10 minutes and for less than 4 dollars! Now, that’s a great craft! New Year’s Eve is tomorrow, but it’s the beginning of the New Year for at least half of January. I plan on leaving my new wreath out that long, anyway. haha.
What you need:
- garland (Dollar Tree – $1 each, but they are half off right now!!)
- wreath form or cardboard (Dollar Tree – $1, but they were out so I used foam core board, also $1)
- hot glue (on hand)
- festive noise makers or necklaces or hats (Dollar Tree – $1 each)
Total : $3.50 SCORE!
What you do:
The Dollar Store was fresh out of wreath forms, so I used a piece of foam core board. I traced my largest bowl on the board and cut out two circles. I cut out the middles and glued them together to make it stronger. Then I wrapped the circle with the garland. I used three pieces of garland. Next, I glued some festive New Year’s accessories to the wreath. Done and done! I love it!! The kids love it. It’s so sparkly! :)
Happy New Year!!!
