Upcycle for NYE
After every Christmas, we all have to clear out the holiday decor as we get ready for a new year. This year, don’t let all the baubles and lights go to waste. Instead, upcycle your favorite Christmas decorations and throw one more party during New Year’s Eve
Decorate With Christmas Trimmings
You already have everything you need to throw a great party. Wrapping paper, tissue paper and gift tags can all be recycled to bring a chic, stylish accent to your New Year’s Eve event.
Wrapping Paper Tablecloth
After the Christmas presents have been wrapped, be sure to hold on to any extra wrapping paper. With the right paper and a little ingenuity, you have all the ingredients for a unique and attractive tablescape. For this New Year’s gathering, glittering gold wrapping paper covers the table in lieu of a tablecloth.
Gift Tag Place Cards
Let your holiday gift tags serve double duty this season, and use them as place cards for your New Year’s Eve table. Tie the cards with metallic ribbon, and write each guest’s name for a great alternative to traditional place cards.
Miniature Champagne Bottles
To incorporate the traditional black-and-white and metallic color palette in unexpected ways, tie black-and-white paper straws to miniature champagne bottles with metallic gift wrapping twine.
Tissue Paper Confetti
Use Christmas tissue paper to create confetti for a budget-friendly way to ring in the New Year. To make, place a variety of colorful sheets together, and cut them into small squares. Pass out handfuls to guests for them to toss at the stroke of midnight.
