Repurpose Your Christmas Décor—Use It For New Year's Eve!

Christmas may be over, but don’t store away your décor just yet. Some remove their holiday ornaments on the 1st of January, while some wait for the Epiphany, the 12th night after Christmas. So, don’t end the holiday festivities just yet. It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and if you’re holding a party at home, here are some easy-to-do ideas to reinvent and repurpose those Christmas décor to fit your NYE celebration. Happy new year!

If your tree is overflowing with décor anyway, it won’t hurt to remove some Christmas balls off it. If you happen to have clear pitchers, candy jars, vases, or serving bowls, put the balls inside. You may arrange the balls per color or create a festive mix in each container.

All you need are some nylon and adhesive to create a melange of Christmas balls falling beautifully from the ceiling. Mix with some balloons and honeycomb paper lanterns. New Year is all about glitzy, glittery items, so your metallic garland will likewise find a place in this fun ensemble.

Hopefully you haven’t yet thrown those pretty ribbons that adorned the Christmas gift boxes you received. Repurpose them by tying around your dining chairs. Attach the poinsettias and metallic ornaments on the ribbons to finish off this cool design. If you have several ribbons in different designs, that's fine; mismatched and eclectic is a good idea.

Drinks are staples at NYE parties, so make your bar cart attention-grabbing. Wrap its edges with garland. Easy does it! Cheers!
