Ready or not here it comes.... The new year is just around the corner! Are you ready for it? Make this New Year's Celebration the best yet with these fun crafts and activities.

Make your house sparkle with home-made New Year's Eve party decorations! Choose a color scheme and go to town making matching accessories.

  • Make fancy candles and candle holders to set up around the room.

  • Instead of streamers, or along with streamers, use curling ribbon to make a room look extra fancy. You can also make paper chains!

  • Fill balloons with confetti (use a funnel). You can pop these at midnight for some extra celebrating. Another fun idea is to write out 'fortunes' on small slips of paper and pop one into each balloon.

  • Cut out colored snowflakes or stars from construction paper, paint on some glue, sprinkle with glitter, and hang them around the room.

  • Make beautiful flowers for a centerpiece and decorations for other table tops!

  • String small, white Christmas tree lights around the room.

  • Make your own confetti by using a paper punch on construction paper. You can even buy paper punches in fancy shapes at craft stores.

  • Make a festive pinata for a fun decoration or as a party game!

  • Make a variety of colorful bell decorations to help you ring in the new year!

After you deck the halls, try making some New Year's noisemakers; and, of course, no party would be complete without fun party favors.

Here are a few more creative craft ideas to help you celebrate the New Year!
