I can’t believe that December is already here and we are dreaming up great New Year’s projects for you! Of course, I am featuring glittered projects and upcycle projects that could be enjoyed any time of the year. The best part is that you can find many of the materials for these projects at your local Goodwill Store for a fraction of the price compared to other retail stores.
Let’s find some thrifty ways to ring in the New Year!
If there is one thing I love, it is glitter! I am always looking for festive additions to add to my wardrobe and these glittered flats couldn’t be easier to create and, according to We Are Not Martha, making these is less messy than you think. For this craft, head to Goodwill to pick up a basic flat and then create a glittered layer with a little Modge Podge and glitter. How festive would these be for the holidays? Or your birthday? Or everyday?
Sometimes the simplest of things bring us the most joy and this craft from diy studio is a joyful & frugal one. My children would adore these Confetti Surprise Jars for a fun family NYE tradition. Pick up a jar at Goodwill and spray paint the lid a dazzling shade of gold or silver, fill it with confetti, and add special surprise inside for the recipient. For your surprise choices, check out the jewelry section or locate small toys or game pieces that you can add as their surprise. Don’t be afraid to spray paint those treasures in the same shade of gold or silver for the holiday.
I am no stranger to adding sparkle to stemware and last year I created these monogrammed wine glasses for my girlfriends. If you are having a small NYE party, consider making these as a fun favor for your guests. If you lack the ambition to monogram them, keep it simple and just add a glittered stem to your glasses.
