5 DIY New Year’s Decorations

Can you believe it’s almost New Year’s Eve? It feels like 2011 went by in a flash!

If you’re planning a New Year’s shindig, you’re probably sorting out your decorations and planning a trip to the party store. The trouble with those store-bought decorations is that they’re often made from unsustainable materials, like plastic or paper from old growth forests, and shipped from far-off factories to the big box store.

Instead of shopping for New Year’s decorations, you can whip up your very own! Not only are these DIY New Year’s decorations better for the planet, but handmade decorations have heart, and you can customize them to match your party theme exactly. A win all around!

No New Years party here. Did chill with a friend though, but not because of the holiday.

The ornament trees look nifty. It's not a good idea to decorate with anything edible if you have pets.
