New Year’s Eve is just one quick week after Christmas and will be here before we know it! It’s always fun to have a little decor up to celebrate the New Year.
Here’s a tip…hang on to old glass bottles after Christmas to turn trash into a festive treasure to make this super easy New Year’s Eve decoration.
I originally shared this project a few years back with a fun party printable to print and frame for New Year’s Eve, but I thought I’d share it again for new readers, since it’s one of my favorite easy DIY projects.
Here’s what you need:
– 4 empty glass bottles (Martinelli bottles work great for this)
– 4 large numbers for the new calendar year (wooden, chipboard, metal whatever you can find)
– gold spray paint
– course gold glitter
– matte mod podge
– gold curling ribbon
– low temp hot glue gun
Rinse and dry out the empty bottles. Spray paint the bottles gold on an open, empty cardboard box and in an open area with good ventilation. I always spray paint outside. Once sprayed, you can bring them into your garage or inside to dry if it’s too cold outside.
Next paint the numbers gold with either gold spray paint or craft paint. Once dry, brush with matte modpodge and cover them with the course gold glitter. I like to do this over sheets of parchment on a cookie sheet as to not waste any excess glitter. Any extra glitter can be dumped back into the glitter container to be used again. Brush off any excess glitter off from the numbers.
Using hot glue, adhere the numbers to the bottle. Add the gold curling ribbon to the top, and you are all finished! Now you’re ready to celebrate the New Year with your cute new decoration! That’s it!
One more tip: buy a few extra numbers for future years, so you can enjoy this decoration as the years change.
