This week I feel we are running a Holiday Marathon!

We were celebrating Christmas yesterday and we have just a week before we will be saying

Happy New Year and singing “For Auld Lang Syne My Dear!”



Today I am going to show you a fun kid’s craft that actually makes adorable New Year’s Party Favors.

Most of the materials came from my local Dollar Store.


You’ll need paper cups, a tensile garland, some ribbon, elastic, or twine.

You can also decorate noisemakers or old paper hats.

We are going to be making Party Hats with the paper cups… SO fun!


First, let your helpers make a hole in each side of the cup with a hole punch.


Cut two pieces of twine long enough to be tied under the chin.

Then have the children thread the Baker’s Twine through the hole.


Then they need to tie it and repeat the same steps for the other side.


Help them  glue the tensile around the border using hot glue.


They are done!

Isn’t it cute?


As I said we even added some fancy silver to our noisemakers, and some other paper hats that we had.

My kids even wanted their cups to be festive… hmmm.

We are ready to party!


I am so excited to celebrate New Years.

All of these Party Favors will go perfectly with our Chalkboard Vintage Theme.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you are as excited as I am for New Year’s Eve.

I can’t wait!

Have a wonderful day my friends!
