Hi there, friends!
I have a FUN and CHEAP idea for you to help you ring in the New Year! Usually we spend our NYE at home eating and playing games. I wanted to add something new to our celebrations this year but I didn’t have much money to spend on the festivities. Here’s what I came up with…
Super fun, right?
White plastic table cloth
Colorful card stock
Colorful tissue paper
Circle sponge brush
Hot glue gun & sticks
*Almost all items I had on hand already. I just went through my craft stash.*
I used my Silhouette (favorite crafting tool EVER…what would I do without her?) to cut out all of the photo props, hats and banner.
I hot glued the skewers to the photo props and the pennants to twine to make the banner.
I added rhinestones and paint polka dots (craft paint + circle sponge brush) for a little something extra.
For the hats, I added yarn to tie them to our heads (since I had it on hand) and made tissue paper pom-poms to add to the tops of the hats.
For our “photo booth,” I hung a white plastic table cloth from the wall using push pins.
And then we went to crazytown with the paper props and hats…
We used my iPhone to take all of the photos and then I used a fun app for the edits (FotoLR3)…
I LOVE the way they all turned out! Too fun.
There you go friends!
A FUN and simple way to ring in the New Year at home with the family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a SAFE and HAPPY New Year’s Eve!
I will see you back here Monday for MFTM’s TOP posts of 2012!
