The best part about New Year’s Eve festivities is admiring all the glitz and glam, so these creative party decoration ideas will transform your home into a luxurious getaway. 

Instead of going above and beyond and spending all of your time and money trying to find the perfect party decorations for your New Year’s Eve extravaganza, opt for these DIY decoration ideas instead. These adornments are fun, affordable and easy-to-make, so they’re perfect for anyone who doesn’t consider themselves to be crafty or for those who are all partied out after the holiday season.

Whether you’re hosting a small get-together of friends, keeping it casual with the family or planning an over-the-top soiree with a large crowd, these ideas will bring all the fun and excitement to any function. From glittery signs to sparkly drinking accessories, easy DIY decorations will help you start the new year off right.

The best way to ring in the new year is by popping open a bottle of bubbly champagne once the clock strikes midnight. Why not toast the new year in style by covering a champagne bottle in a sleeve of glitter? All you have to do is coat an unopened champagne bottle in glue and sprinkle on different layers of glitter to create an ombré look. You can also turn your champagne bottle into a gorgeous centerpiece by tying a metallic balloon to the bottleneck and scattering confetti down the middle of your dinner table.

Sparkles and fancy drinks are the epitome of New Year’s Eve celebrations, so why not combine the two by creating a shimmering sign for your drink display?

To make the sign, gather styrofoam or wooden letters, cover each letter in glue, dip them in gold glitter and hang them up to admire. For an even more festive presentation, decorate your bar setup with confetti, streamers and metallic ornaments.
