Best DIY Projects for a NYE-Inspired Wedding

These sparkling DIY projects will fit right in at your NYE celebration.

 

 

 

NYE 1

 

 

Disco Ball Favors

 

Seriously, how cute are these!? Nothing heralds a great party quite like a disco ball. After you make the balls, you can turn them into ornaments or keychains as wedding favors.

 

 

 

NYE 2

 

 

Gold Sugar Accents

 

This is officially the easiest DIY of all time. Rim your cocktail glasses with bright gold sugar for a magical touch to your bar table.

 

 

 

NYE 3

 

 

Colorful Drink Stirrers

 

Or, if your cocktails will be on the savory side, make these cool drink stirrers inside. Filled with shimmering confetti, they are also a lot of fun to create.

 

 

 

NYE 4

 

 

Geode Napkin Rings

 

Combine the sparkle of NYE and one of this year’s biggest trends with these golden geode napkin rings. They will make a big statement at each place setting and the facets of the stones will sparkle in the candlelight.

 

 

 

NYE 5

 

 

Mylar Balloon Decor

 

Especially for modern weddings in loft spaces, it can be a challenge to keep the venue from looking empty. Fill corners with NYE-themed mylar balloons or use them to create photo backdrops.

 

 

 

 

NYE 6

 

 

Sparkling Hanging Installation

 

Honestly, this amazing hanging installation is really time consuming. However, it is also really easy. Punch out snowflakes from white and metallic glitter paper and then alternate them from strings suspended from the wire frame. Cover the frame in greenery and hang above the ceremony space or sweethearts’ table.

Gold Confetti Vase

 

Want to give your simple centerpieces some NYE style? These gold glitter vases are less work than you might think, and look great with monochromatic arrangements.

 

 

 

NYE 8

 

 

Countdown Champagne Glasses

 

Use these DIY countdown champagne glasses as your table numbers. Rather than traditional numbers in the center of the table, use these at each place setting instead.

 

 

 

NYE 9

 

 

Festive Meringue Cookies

 

Is your sister a whiz in the kitchen? Is she dying to whip something up for your wedding? Have her bake these meringue cookies topped with glimmering sugar in your color palette. Bite-size and kind of addictive, they will be the hit of the reception!

 

 

 

NYE 10

 

 

Glittering Celebration Cracker

 

A beloved British Christmas tradition, crackers are often filled with paper crowns, silly toys, and jokes. You can fill yours with whatever you want, but for a NYE party, make sure to include lots of shimmering confetti for a celebratory countdown-to-midnight moment!
