New Years Decor Ideas and a Free Printable Banner

New years comes and goes so quickly so its easy to overlook putting out decor for such a short holiday time! This easy and inexpensive New Years decor ideas will for sure make you want to decorate for New Years! Especially if you’re throwing a party!

New Years Mantel_1

For this mantel we did some pretty simple decor that gives a definite WOW factor! First, we jazzed up a chalkboard with a fun “Cheers 2014” design. (If you’re looking for a statement chalkboard, contact Savannah at classyclutter4 (at) gmail (dot) com)

Next, garlands! We used three different types of garlands on this display. Layering multiple garlands gives the illusion layers and makes it look super jazzy which is exactly what you want for new years!

Glitter Dot Garland

Next, we used metallic tissue paper and made the fringe garland. It’s super easy to make if you’ve never done it before.  You take your tissue paper and fold it as wide as you want your garland to be. We folded it and cut 3″ fringe on each side of the folded paper leaving about a half inch section in the middle. Unfold and tape it to the ceiling. You may need to tape two together to make a really long one. Twirl a bit for a spiral effect. So fun!

 Next up is our free printable new years garland. Simply print it out and string it with thread or ribbon. We sewed more glitter dots in between each word.

    This is so cute!! Unfortunately we have a wedding reception and another huge NYE party to go to somewhere else so I am going to skip decorating for New Years but I LOVE your garland idea.. The gold could definitely be used again for St Patricks Day and just throw in some green (:
