It’s hard to look past Christmas right now, but New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and it seems like I have a wreath for every holiday except NYE. So I thought I’d create a Silver and Gold New Year’s Eve Wreath to bring in 2015!! The whole thing is pretty easy to make and is quite a showstopper on your front door!
What you need:
- Wire Wreath Form
- Two 12-foot Gold/Silver Garland
- 1/2 Styrofoam ball
- Black paint/foam safe spray paint
- Glitter (silver and black)
- Silver glittered cardstock cut into 2015 numbers using Silhouette (or whatever year it is)
- Dowel rod
- Hot Glue
I started by wrapping my garland around my wire wreath form until it was completely covered. I used two 12′ long garlands from Target to do the job ($6 a piece).
After I was done wrapping, I tucked the ends into the layers of the wreath and then got started on my NYE ball. I wanted the wreath to look like the ball was dropping. So I took a Styrofoam ball and cut it in half and then spray painted it black. I covered it in silver and black glitter using mod podge and let it dry completely.
After painted, I coated the ball with mod podge and then covered with silver and black glitter and let dry completely. Finally, I took a wooden dowel rod and wedged it in between the prongs of the wire wreath I then hot glued the ball onto the dowel rod. Lastly, I used my Silhouette machine to cut out 2015 on silver glittered cardstock and I used hot glue to hold it in place.
So there you have it! An easy and fun 2015 New Year’s Eve Wreath that anyone can make with just a little money, time, and effort! Happy New Year to all!! May it be happy, healthy, and prosperous!!
