New Year’s Eve DIY Decor Ideas
These DIY decor ideas are an easy way to elevate New Year’s Eve look.
1. Ombré New Year’s Eve DIY Pinata
Piñatas are not just for kids! Not only will this DIY piñata make for a fun activity, it also serves as festive decor. Plus, it’s simple to make. Begin with a 10″ paper lantern, then use a 2.5″ circle punch to make up to 140 paper circles. Paint in gold, silver, and bronze, then using a low heat glue gun affix in rows from the bottom up – be sure to add in your treats before the last one! Hang with ribbon or twine.

2. Sequined Backdrop
You can’t get any easier than this! Hang sequined fabric anywhere you’d like to add a little extra shimmer, like behind your dessert bar!
3. A Bubbly Bar
What are the first two things that come to mind when you think about a New Year’s Eve party? If it’s glitter and bubbly, you’re not alone. That’s why we are so in love with this idea – a champagne bar with a DIY, sparkly painted letters spelling out “bubbly”. Both projects are as simple as can be. Stock your bubbly station with champagne flutes, several types of champagne (chilled in an ice bucket), and cocktail napkins. Then decorate with your fun letters! You can make it even more interesting by adding all these elements to a bar cart for a portable serving station!
4. New Year’s Eve Star Crown
Decor doesn’t have to be limited to our home, right? This idea from The House That Lars Built is guaranteed to put a pep in your step. Simply take a headband, cut out cardboard stars, glue and glitter for instantly festive glamour!
5. Repurpose Ornaments
A stunning use of Christmas ornaments for your New Year’s celebration is to hang the gold and glittery ones above your table, bar cart or bubbly station! (We happen to like the clock decor, too!) Anything that’s shimmery from the holidays can serve as dual purpose New Year’s Eve decor with a little creativity and out of the box thinking.
As far as food goes, keep it small and simple but indulgent. Bite-sized favorites like truffles and tartlets available on platters throughout your space are always winners. You’ll also want to consider serving items that can be prepared in advance, that allow guests to mingle and don’t require them to be seated.
