New Year’s Eve Crafts

NYE Decoration DIY Projects

Creating home décor pieces from party supplies continue to be one of our favorite things to do here at Wholesale Party Supplies and we resolve to do even more of it in the upcoming New Year. For today, though, see how we transformed basic party blowers into a glamorous and stunning wreath then went on to glitz up a “punny” decorative label with a glittered glue pen.

Party Blower Wreath

What you’ll need:

  • Party blowers
  • Plastic cake round
  • Circle template
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft knife
  • Pencil

Using a cake round for the wreath base is a sure way to start with a precise circle but it’s not absolutely necessary. A recycled cardboard box and a dinner plate template will yield just as great of results. Our cake round measures 10 inches.

Step One:
Trace circle templates onto the center of the cake round. We used a 4-inch template for the inner circle here.

Step Two:
Remove the circle center using a craft knife.

Step Three:
Hot glue party blowers onto cake round, keeping inner circle edge flush with blower opening. TIP: Start by gluing blowers at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 positions. Once those spots are taken, fill in with remaining blowers.

Step Four:
To cover the exposed gaps, glue a second layer of blowers about ¾” down from the first.

Step One:
“Color” label with the glitter glue pen. By creating a label close in color to the glitter, there’s no need to have perfect coloring skills. Any uncovered lines will just blend in.

Step Two:
Once the label is thoroughly dry, trim it just along the glittered outline.

Step Three:
Attach label to black glitter paper using foam adhesive.

Create a mat by trimming glitter paper approximately 1/4” larger than the label.

Punch holes in corners. Insert ribbon length through both holes and tie the square knot on the front as seen in the picture.
