New Year’s Eve parties are always a lot of fun – whether you’re hosting a big soiree, or just a couple of friends to watch the ball drop – it’s a lovely way to ring in the new year. I love to decorate for all occasions, but after the hub-bub of Christmas, it can sometimes be daunting to re-decorate for the New Year. Thankfully, chalkboard cardstock exists, and it makes short work of creating this quick and easy DIY New Year banner.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY New Year banner:
- David Tutera™ Circle Chalkboard Tags
- Baker’s Twine
- David Tutera™ Fine Tip Chalk Pen
- Jewelry Tassels
- Rusted Jingle Bells
- EK Tools® Vintage Snowflake Paper Punch
- Adhesive Gold Silhouette Vinyl
These little rounds work out fantastically for this DIY New Year banner! They come pre-punched into perfect little circles with holes on either side. A chalk pen works best to get clear numbers on the disks. I kept it simple, but “Happy New Year” or “Auld Lang Syne” are also great New Year’s sayings.
I used a paper punch to cut out snowflakes from gold adhesive vinyl. This makes for quick and easy work of decorating the remaining rounds.
Finally, these tassels – originally intended for jewelry projects – add a great flair to any decoration. I tied them onto the baker’s twine in between rounds.
I finished each end of the DIY New Year banner with a rusted jingle bell – as a way to say “let’s ring in the New Year!”
Cheesy? Yes. But I’m always a bit corny when I can be.
And voila! In no time at all, I had a festive DIY New Year banner, ready for merriment.
This banner can be strung on a wall, mantel, staircase, or anywhere you want to add a bit of festive cheer. I love that it takes only 10-15 minutes to put together… it’s the perfect post-Christmas project! Make sure to start out the New Year organized with this pretty 2016 calendar printable!
