New Years Crafts
I love fun and festive New Year decor. There's nothing quite like out with the old, in with the new, to put a smile on my face and a pep in my step. I also love how this party wreath puts a fun closure to what I'd like to call an "interesting" year.
This year, instead of going out for the holidays, we're staying in and concentrating on staying safe, happy, and healthy. This means that I'm determined to make my party door more festive and fun than ever. I have a feeling that this Happy New Year wreath is going to be just what our door needs and as soon as the Christmas holiday passes, I'll be making and putting this bad boy up.
(And if you don't have room on your front door or a way to hang it, it can totally be a fun and festive wall wreath, too!)
The fun of crafting as a family
I know I'm big on doing a lot of family things together but that is just because they're so much fun. I really enjoy spending the holidays creating memories and crafts that we will cherish forever and get to use over and over again.
The kids also really like to jump in and help with the fun as well because this means that they get to be a bit creative and messy at the same time. And since we're all done with baking holiday cookies, it just makes sense to go ahead and start creating our New Years' crafts now.
With several weeks of downtime from school and other activities, we can't wait to buckle down and be as festive as we can. Since these holidays only happen once per year, we try to get all the fun out of them that we can!
Hanging up your front door wreath
The best part about making a door wreath is that you can take it down and put it up as often as you want. You just need to have a way to hang it and that's about it. If you have a hook already on your door, you're in luck.
And if you don't, you can easily add one as well. There are even temporary hooks that you can buy to hang if you don't want to have a hook hanging on your front door all year long! Have fun making this fun New Year's Wreath. It's a simple and festive way to create a home decoration that welcomes the New Year with lots of party fun!
Takedown that Christmas wreath and then up goes the disco balls and this beauty for New Year's Eve.

How to Make a New Year's Eve Wreath
First thing is to cut the paper plate. Have an adult carefully cut out the inner circle of the paper plate in one piece as much as possible. For those that may not know how to cut out the middle of the paper plate, simply cut a wide x starting in the middle. This will allow the scissors to get into the middle of the plate and keep the outer ring intact.
Paint the remaining circle black. We used a decorative paper plate, as you can see, but any kind of paper plate will do. If yours has a design, as well, then you may just need two coats of paint. Let dry completely.
Now, draw simple stars of different sizes on the inner.
Cut out the circle. You will need to get at least 4 stars.
Paint the stars bright yellow and an off-white, cream, or a paler yellow color. Let dry.
Once dry, use the tip of the paintbrush to apply dots of yellow paint around the black circle.
And use a white marker to draw asterisks or more simple dots, too.
Next, write the numbers of the new year on the stars with the black marker.
Glue the stars to the bottom of the wreath. For best results and for stars to stay on the wreath longer, then I recommend using a hot glue gun instead of the glue stick. In that case, it is always a good idea to have adult supervision.
Any extra stars glue around the wreath.
Finally, cut a strand of twine or ribbon. Tie together.
Form a loop, and bring one end of the twine through the loop around the top of the paper plate.
Viola, you have a festive wreath!
We love the idea of including this with our holiday wreaths and Christmas decor. It is a great way to not forget it as you are putting away the Christmas tree decorations you will pull out your New Years' wreath and you are all set.
Happy New Years Crafting!
