New Years crafts

This year my family and I will be staying in a cabin over New Years and I always try to make a big deal about every holiday and New Years at the cabin will not be an exception! I'm making some crafts to decorate the cabin and I've got games and things planned to make the night exciting! I made this "disco ball" to be our version of the Times Square ball that drops at midnight! I covered it with glue and sprinkled silver glitter all over it. It was a pain because I'd have to let part of it dry so I could do the other side. Then I took blue glitter glue and wrote 2010 on it and had to pierce the styrofoam with a metal rod so I could hang some metal wire through it to hang it up.

Then I used my paper punch and cut out all these shapes, stamped the letters, inked the edges and pierced the paper so I could add a star brad and some elastic string so that I could hang them up at the cabin. I'm so excited!! We're going to have a blast!


  1. That sounds like a lot of fun. Happy New Year.

  2. It does sound like a fun and festive way to ring in the new year! I do hope you have a blast and stay warm!

  3. Hello there! I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how much I have learned from you and your WONDERFUL ideas! I don't think it's just a "craft" that you create, either. It's a touch of thoughtfulness to your cards, a hint of added beauty to your decorations, and a sense of LIFE taking place instead of just going through the motions! Lord bless you, sweet friend! I pray that you continue to create and bring glory to Him.
